In the event that you have been to Korea in the past, you have most likely witnessed street vendors preparing these miniature breads from scratch.

Your attention will be drawn to the aroma emanating from the vendors, and the price will be guaranteed to seal the purchase. Is that what it is? According to Gyeran, “Egg” bread is what “Ppang” implies. Introducing the Korean Egg Bread.




It is essentially a fresh egg that has been put into the cake batter during the baking process. The miniature cake is cooked in a short amount of time, and it emerges moist, tender, and somewhat sweet. While the egg contributes both a savory flavor and a source of protein, From this point forward, street vendors in Korea make use of an oval-shaped metal mold in order to achieve the distinctive shape that Koreans are accustomed to seeing.

But there is no need to purchase any molds for cooking at home. Paper cups are a viable option for doing so!

Notations for the preparation of Korean egg bread:

In order to prevent the bread from sticking to the paper cup, you should first melt some butter and then brush it along the interior of the cup. Following the placement of an egg within the cup, a toothpick or fork should be used to delicately puncture the egg. Because of this, the yolk will slightly run and mix with the egg white, which will result in a more even distribution (you do not want to bite into the entire yolk).




A gorgeous and crispy top can be achieved by topping the cups with cheese, which is another recommendation I have. You should use a combination of shredded yellow cheese (such as cheddar) and white cheese (such as mozzarella) in your dish.

Important: The cooking temperature and time will be slightly different for you because the size and power of your air fryer (or oven) are different from mine. Thank you for your understanding.

The ideal cooking time for us was thirty minutes at a temperature of 165 degrees Celsius (about 325 degrees Fahrenheit). For this reason, I would suggest opening the air fryer after twenty minutes and using a toothpick or chopstick to poke the middle of one of the cups (all the way down to the bottom). This will ensure that the food is cooked through.




You should examine the amount of moist batter that appears on the tip of your chopstick if any is there. Using this, you will be able to determine how much additional baking time you require.

Ingredients

  • ¾ Cup Milk
  • 1 Egg (To mix into the milk)
  • 1.5 Cups Pancake Mix (aka Hotcake Mix)
  • 2 Tablespoons Butter
  • 4 Paper Cups (~length of your palm)
  • 4 Eggs (To drop into cups)
  • 1 strip Bacon
  • Handful of Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
  • Handful of Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • Few shakes Salt
  • A few shakes of Dried Parsley




Instructions

Prepare Egg Bread Cups

  • Take out a mixing bowl and place in milk (¾ cup). Drop in an egg and whisk it thoroughly.
  • Next, add 1.5 cups of pancake mix. Give it another thorough whisk.
  • Melt some Butter (2 Tablespoons) in the microwave. Then use a kitchen brush and coat the melted butter onto the inside of the 4 paper cups.
  • Now carefully pour the batter into the cups – fill each only halfway.
  • Then carefully drop an egg into each cup. Use a fork and gently pierce the egg yolk – so it can distribute evenly as it bakes.
  • Then don’t forget to season – sprinkle a small pinch of salt over the eggs.

  • Optional: Cut a strip of bacon into bite-sized pieces. Then place it as a topping onto each cup.
  • Next, place a small amount of mozzarella cheese and cheddar cheese over the top of each cup.
  • Finally, garnish the cups with a few shakes of dried parsley.




Bake Korean Egg Bread

  • Place the cups into an air-fryer. Set for 30 minutes at 165°C (325°F).
  • Note: After 20 minutes, briefly open the lid and poke the middle of one of the cups – down to the bottom – with a chopstick or toothpick. See how much-wet batter comes up. If it’s not wet at all, yours is done. If it comes out slightly wet, continue cooking until the 30-minute mark.




  • Once the cups are fully cooked thoroughly, take the cups out of the air-fryer and let them cool down for a few minutes. Then use a pair of scissors and make a cut along the paper cup. Tear it open with your fingers and gently remove the egg bread.
  • Bon Appetit! If you’re like me, cut the egg bread down the middle and place a small drizzle of hot sauce onto each side! So delicious
