Hotteok (Korean: 호떡), sometimes called Hoeddeok, is a type of filled pancake; and is a popular street food in South Korea.

The dough for hotteok is made from wheat flour, water, milk, sugar, and yeast. The dough is allowed to rise for several hours. Handful-sized balls of this stiff dough are filled with a sweet mixture, which may contain brown sugar, honey, chopped peanuts, and cinnamon. The filled dough is then placed on a greased griddle, and pressed flat into a large circle, this is done with a stainless steel circle and wooden handle as it cooks.

In South Korea, ready-made hotteok mix is commercially available in plastic packages and CJ’s Baksul Sweet Korean Pancake Mix is one of the most popular hotteok mix. The mix also comes with a filling consisting of brown sugar and ground peanuts or sesame seeds.
