Hoddeok & I'm BACK!!!

Weeeeeeeeeeee.... sukanya hati aku!! Hubby balik from johor pagi tadi. Maknanya I can browse the internet using laptop! Yang paling aku suka, aku boleh berblogging baalik. Rindunya nak berblogging. Dah beberapa hari tak berblog rasa macam ada benda tak kena je.. ..

Bila takleh nak bloghop malam2 buta, mood masak pun gone with the wind. Seksa nak bloghop or browse the net using ipod. Kecik! plus aku kena jegilkan bijik mata untuk baca. Tapikan, sempat jugak aku buat hoddeok semalam and give some to Ju for her iftar. I wanna bring some to K.Yani masa pegi rumah dia semalam but my hoddeok dah habis by then. Tak sangka hoddeok aku mendapat sambutan yang hebat dari anak2. It's so simple but delicious. Err.. aku pun makan gak. Hancus diet aku semalam.. huhuhu.. Takpe la, I need the sugar boost from hoddeok tu.

This week, Iman and Iffah ada latihan sukan. But aku malas sangat2 nak hantar dia org sekolah sebab tak belajar and the students kena duduk tepi padang dari pagi sampai la tengahari. Cikgu pun tak masuk kelas. Dah la this week asyik hujan je, kasut yg putih, jadi merah bila dia org balik dari sekolah. Err.. sebenarnya, I'm trying to justify why I didnt send them to school today.. hahahahha.. I'm just too tired.

Back to Hoddeok.

 Stack it! Can you see the melted brown sugar mix that's about to ooze from the hoddeok?

 Spread it on the plate

The ipod yang banyak berjasa for the past few days.. huhuhu..

1 cup of luke warmwater
2 tsp dry yeast
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbs vegetable oil
2 tbs sugar

Filling

1.Place  water into a mixing bowl.
2.Add white sugar, yeast, salt, vegetable oil, and stir it well.
3.Add flour and mix it with a rice scoop, or by hand.
4.Let the dough rise. It should sit with the lid closed at room temperature for 1 hour.

6.Let it rise for another 10-20 minutes.

Make filling (for 8 hoddeok):

Making hoddeok.
1.Knead the dough again to remove the gas bubbles.

2.Place and spread about ½ cup flour on your cutting board.

3.Put the dough on your cutting board and knead it. Make it into a lump, and cut it into 8 equal-sized balls.
4.Take 1 dough ball, flatten it, put some filling in the center of the dough, and then seal it to make a ball.

5.Repeat this 8 times to make 8 stuffed balls.

*tip: Use some flour from the cutting board to prevent your fingers from sticking to the dough

6.Heat up your non-stick pan over medium heat and add some vegetable oil.

7.Place 1 ball on the pan and let it cook for 30 seconds.

8.When the bottom of the dough ball is light golden brown, turn it over and press the dough with a spatula to make a thin and wide circle (about the size of a CD).
9.Let it cook about 1 minute until the bottom is golden brown.

10.Turn it over again and turn down the heat very low.

11.Place the lid on the pan and cook 1 more minute. The brown sugar filling mixture will be melted to syrup!
Serve hot!
