I am not intentionally doing sequential posts on sweets, but sometimes these things happen! Blessedly!
A while ago on Facebook my sister shared a link to Korean recipes. One was for hoddeok. It is basically a pan-fried whole doughnut with a brown sugar and cinnamon filling that melts during the frying into a syrup. Hooked yet? It was very easy to prepare. It just took a little planning, since you need to have the dough rise for about 1.5 hours.
Even though my darling husband loves so much of Korean food, he can’t seem to forgive the Kim Chee and Kojujang, so he is often wary of any new recipe. I made these and gave first to the kids and then asked if he would like to try one. He gamely agreed—but gamely, like he was doing me a favor. Thankfully the hoddeok passed muster, so its name was shouted to the rafters for about an hour. That is high praise—literally!
Hoddeok is a hit!
