Gyeranppang – Korean Egg Bread

in Korean

I first found the existence of gyeranppang from a Korean food blog. Since then, I’ve been looking out for it. What’s gyeranppang 계란빵 ? Gyeran 계란 means egg and ppang 빵 means bread. Yes it simply means egg bread and that’s what it is. It’s a famous snack that you can find quite easily in Korea. I had gyeranppang when I was in Seoul. It was not bad. Let me tell you this, this recipe I’m sharing is even better than the one I had in Seoul. The authentic gyeranppang 계란빵 in Korea come in the shape of oblong. I wanted to make the authentic gyeranppang hence when I chanced upon gyeranppang mould/pan at Bangsan Market in Seoul, I knew I gotta buy it. Bought it I did and the rest is history. :)

Gyeranppang 계란빵. So delish.

I knew I wanted to try patbingsu when I visited Korea. So when I was in Jeonju on day 7 of my South Korea trip, I visited a patbingsu shop by the name of Grandma’s Best or 외할머니솜씨 (Oe Halmeoni Somssi). Loosely translated it means grandma’s skill. The shop is actually ‘again’ recommended by my hanok host, Mr Lee. Even though this is my very first time eating patbingsu, I got a feeling that this might be the very best patbingsu in the whole of Korea. ;)

For those who do not know, patibingsu is shaved ice with sweet red beans. It’s some sort of like ice kacang (Malaysian sweet dessert) but 10x yummier. Hehehe
