Turning Korean After Eating Hoddeok

So this is my second post about Korean food, and it definitely won’t be my last one. This evening, the  Amherst Korean student association made Hoddeok, a popular Korean pancake filled with a mixture of brown sugar, cinnamon, and peanuts. I learned that Hoddeok is typically eaten during the winter season. (Though it certainly did not feel like winter here in Massachusetts on this sunny, 55 degree day).

I watched my roommate roll the doughy mixture, and pan fry it until crisp and golden brown. The result was as follows:

When I took a bite of this crunchy pancake, I was pleasantly surprised but not overwhelmed by it’s sweet peanut taste. This hot treat was a perfect way to end my hectic day, and it gives me even more reason to continue to follow the events on campus which involve food.
