Honestly, no offense but if you make the Hoddeok recipe like this you are seriously missing out. This comes close, it really does but I can direct you to a much much better recipe. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JmThacBaitw Or just search for AerisKitchen on youtube. Go to videos and on page two I believe will be the step by step video and ingredients list. Enjoy. :D
Wow, I LOVE this recipe!! I made it once for the fam, and they just inhaled it so quickly. But I really do recommend that you let the dough sit in the fridge overnight so to give sufficient time for the yeast to rise. I noticed a dramatic change in taste on day 1 and day 2 for the dough. D1 dough tasted flat, too starchy (potato-ey), and dense, while D2 proved to be fluffly, easier to worok with, and simply--just right. Oh, and I also replaced the brown sugar with honey powder (found in Korean markets), and before closing up my dough ball, I would squeeze a dollop of honey over the honey powder so to help speed up the melting process for the syrup formation. Adding even just a bit of syrup over your brown sugar will help! :) Awesome, awesome recipe! I just made more last night, to enjoy after tonight's dinner. ^.^ yipee~ I also suggest adding ground peanuts into the filling. I hear using 1/4 rice flour and 3/4 flour helps create a chewier texture. I will try this next time. When flattening the dough, I oil my hand liberally so the dough doesn't stick unto my hand, and then flatten on top of a greased board, spread it about .5cm thick, and then put two large tablespoons of filling, add a bit of honey, and then fold over all corners into a round ball. On the skillet, I lay the round ball atop a layer of hot oil, and after about 15-30 sec., I flip it over and THEN flatten as much as possible. I heat it over med heat for a bit so to melt the sugar and the dough to fully cook. I also tried it with red bean paste, and that tastes very good as well. >.<
