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.
My precious gyeranppang pans. 🙂 I only bought 5 pan. Fyi, this recipe can make 6 gyeranppang. If you don’t have this pan, don’t worry. You can use muffin or cupcake pan as well.
First, place 2 eggs and sugar in a mixing bowl. Mix until sugar dissolved. Then, add all purpose flour, baking powder, vanilla essence, melted salted butter and milk into the mixing bowl. Mix it well.
This is the batter consistency. Not too liquid-y.
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, pinch of salt and black pepper.
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!
