Bungeo ppang/Gukhwa ppang/Gyeran ppang
Bungeo ppang, a favorite winter snack, gets its name from its fish-like shape. This sweet snack is molded in the shape of a carp, called bungeo in Korean. The pancake batter-like shell is filled with red-bean paste, cream or cheese and then baked. Gukhwa ppang is shaped like a flower and is slightly smaller than that of the similar tasting bungeo ppang. Gyeran ppang is also made of a pancake batter-like shell, but is filled with an egg during the cooking process instead of red bean filling.
