Updated 17th December 2022.
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.
From my latest bake in May 2020. Here I added homemade bacon, sausage and thyme.
My precious gyeranppang pans. 🙂 Pan size: 10.5cm (length) x 7cm (width) x 3cm (height). I only bought 5 pans. Fyi, this recipe can make 6 gyeranppang. If you don’t have this pan, don’t worry. You can use ramekins, muffin or cupcake pans as well.
First, place 2 eggs and sugar in a mixing bowl. Mix until sugar is dissolved. Then, add all purpose flour, baking powder, vanilla essence, melted salted butter (I’ve tried using lard instead and it works well) and milk into the mixing bowl. Mix it well.
This is the batter consistency. Not too liquidy.
Coat the gyeranppang pan with melted butter so that it won’t stick to the pan. Then pour batter evenly into the 6 pans. It should be about 1/4 full. Crack an egg into each pan.
Add your desired toppings. I added ham, Chinese parsley, a pinch of salt and black pepper.
Since I only have 5 pieces of gyeranppang pans, I use ramekin to fill another one.
Bake at 200oC for 15 minutes. Then switch off the oven and let the bread finish cooking in the oven for 5 more minutes. Serve warm.
So yum. Sweet, savory and very unique!
Try eating the gyeranppang with kimchi, it’s so heavenly.

Hi Faith, glad it suits your taste. 🙂
Hi, these look so good, I’m going to make some tomorrow! I want to get some pans for them too, what size are the pans that you use?
Hi Mariah, the oblong pan size is 9.5cm x 6cm. Let me know if you like it.
Hi! Is your batter’s texture somewhat like that of a pancake mix?
Hi Denise, yes the batter’s texture is like a pancake mix batter or just any other batter.
hello. i’m interested to try but i don’t have any baking oven. can i use the turbo broiler?
Hi Jam, I’m not sure as I’ve never heard of turbo broiler before. You can try and let us know. 🙂
Hi can you tell me where to buy these pans? These look so good!
Hi Diana, I bought them at Bangsan Market, South Korea. Here’s a post about it: http://messywitchen.com/talk-food/mini-haul-bangsan-market-south-korea/
Hi, if you use a regular muffin pan instead should the recipe make more than 6? Thanks!
Hi Elizabeth, I think for regular muffin pan, the recipe will make 6 too. It depends on how much batter you pour into each hole.
Looks delicious. I’ve been to Korea on May but I don’t find this bread or did I miss it? TT__TT
Gonna try to make this on weekend yum…. Thanks for sharing
Hi Winda, I saw gyeranppang at Myeondong.
This recipe looks super cool and fancy to be made from such simple ingredients. I can’t wait to try it! Thanks for sharing!
Hi GG, hope you like it. 🙂
OMG!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH!
i just made it for breakfeast, it’s amaizing!
grettings from Tijuana, Mexico.
Hi Bren, glad you liked it. 🙂
Can I make the batter the night before so I can just pour and bake in the morning?
Hi Melissa, I’ve never tried it before. I think you can add all the ingredients the night before except for the baking powder. On the day you want to bake, add the baking powder and mix well. Do let us know if it works.
Tastes great. Nice and light. I made it as a snack and using a muffin/ cupcake pan. I made 10 in total and made some changes to the recipe to make it healthier.
Loved the receipe. Thank you.
Hi Sarah, glad you liked it. Welcome. 🙂
hello ! would like to check, if I would like to heat it up after it has cooled will the egg still be runny ? and how should I heat it up ?
Hi Jenny, It depends on how runny your yolk is in the first place. Perhaps you can try warming the gyeranppang on a pan for a couple of minutes in very low heat. This way only the bottom is being heated while the top is warm.
Not sure if you’ll see this comment (this post is quite old!). I made this tonight and my eggs sunk to the bottom. Any suggestions for that? I was thinking of par baking them next time and then putting the eggs on, but thought I’d come to the source first. 🙂
Hi Jess, I’m not sure about this. Did you pour the batter 1/4 of the mould height? Maybe you can use less batter? That’s all I can think of.
Should the bacon be precooked thanks
Hi Mel, you don’t need to precook the bacon.
Amazing recipe thank you! I didn’t have the pans (looking for them online but didn’t want to wait) but I found that some mini loaf pans work even better than the muffin pans because the volume is similar.
Hi Ana, you’re welcome. Lovely idea using the mini loaf pans. I saw your Insta. 👍
Hi! Your work looks nice! I just have to ask where you bough the pans? Thanks for your reply!
Hi Addi, I got it at South Korea. It’s mentioned in the post.
Omg this looks so delicious! I’m definitely going to be making this during this crazy pandemic. Stay safe! 😊
Hi Ana, let me know how it goes. Enjoy the gyeranppang!
This looks amazing! May i ask what volume of cup do you use? thank you.
Hi Erica, US cup. Hope you like the gyeranppang!
These baked up beautifully and kids loved them. I broke the yolks and swirled each egg a little and topped with half slice of cheese and a breakfast sausage link. I used a USA Pan mini loaf pan and it worked perfectly to make 6. Very nice recipe! A bit too sweet for my tastes and I believe less butter would work, but I will make this again for the kids.
Hi Toshiko, so glad to know that your kids loved it. Thanks for sharing the pan that you used. It looks perfect for the gyeranppang. Feel free to adjust the ratio. I usually use less sugar.
what are the dimensions of the pans?
Hi Crystal, the gyeranppang pan dimensions (approximate) are 10.5cm (length) x 7cm (width) x 3cm (height).
How do you pronounce gyeranppang. I watch all Korean shows so may have seen them. Koreans enjoy eating.
Hi Jan, enter 계란빵 in Google Translate. Then press the speaker icon. You’ll hear a native korean pronouncing 계란빵.
Gyeranppang is a famous Korean street food.
