Gyeran-ppang (계란빵; "egg bread") is a warm street snack sold throughout South Korea.[1] The fluffy, oblong-shaped loaf of bread is sweet and savory with a whole egg inside the pancake dough.[2][3]


A Gyeran-ppang machine is an appliance with a few dozen oblong slots for pouring cake batter and eggs.[2] The cake mix usually consists of wheat flour, baking powder, milk, eggs, butter, sugar, salt and vanilla extract.[3] A whole egg is cracked onto the batter in each slot, and the egg breads are cooked till golden brown.[2] Common toppings include chopped parsley, cheese, and diced ham.[3]
