(Tongyeong: Kkul-ppang) Korean Traditional Dessert
Kkul-ppang, literally meaning "honey bread," was first introduced in the early 1960s, not long after the Korean War. It was originally made for sailors as a snack that can be stored for a long time without going bad even in the warm climate of Tongyeong. Kkul-ppang looks like a round donut covered in honey and is only moderately sweet despite its appearance. Wheat flour dough balls with red bean paste filling are deep fried and coated with sweet starch syrup to add gloss.
The sweet kkul-ppang is about the size of an egg and it's sold across the city of Tongyeong in Gyeongsangnam-do. Nowadays, you can have the fun of choosing various flavored kkul-pang filled with other ingredients than the traditional red bean paste, such as sweet potato, chestnut, citron, green tea, and more.
