Korean Honey Butter Bread - Title of the Recipe

Have you ever been to South Korea? If you have never been, and you have an option to go, please do. It’s one of my favourite countries when it comes to food, fashion and culture. I love it so much. We should go back to visit this year or the next. If you have never been there, you probably don’t know that their bread is sweet. It’s not like our bread that we have in Europe. It’s kinda like white toast, but sweeter, like the bread that you would get in America.

Anyway, one of my favourite desserts in Korean cafés was baked bread with honey, butter and various toppings such as ice cream, chocolate, fruits … This dessert is easy to prepare with simple ingredients that you usually already have at home, and it’s so delicious.

I used white toast for this recipe, because I never saw the kind of bread that they have in Korea over here, the taste is similar, so feel free to use toast.

Fun Facts:

  • Since this blog post is all about Korean bread, let me tell you about the time that we wanted some eggs, and we didn’t have any bread to go with. We stayed in Korea for about a month, we were staying in an apartment because we didn’t feel like eating out all the time. Anyway, we wanted eggs with bread for breakfast, so we went to this small convenience store by our apartment to get them. The store owner was this really friendly 아줌마 (ajumma - aunt). She didn’t have any bread to sell, but she went in the back of the store and gave us her own bread to use, it was the friendliest thing ever.
