Do you like Churros?
Typically, churros are made with choux pastry. Choux is a light pastry used to make many desserts such as eclairs, crullers, choux puffs and more. It is made with flour, salt, butter, eggs, milk, and sugar (although usually not too much).

However, this recipe calls for rice cakes instead! Rice cakes, or tteok (떡), are made with glutinous rice flour or sweet rice.  There are so many different kinds of rice cakes and they are eaten all year round in Korea. So, these are Churros, but with a Korean spin on them!

You will need:

  • sugar
