Cooking Cooking [Christmas Edition with Elke]

If you have been in South Korea before, you may have noticed that most cafes offer a treat on the menu that looks a lot like toast. If toast would be served with a lot of whipped cream and fruit that is. They call it honey bread (허니 브레드) and it is super tasty.

Because we can’t stay in Korea all the time and buy this lovely treat, we decided to bring bread – well, -the Korean kind at least – to the Netherlands and share the recipe with you so you can make it at home!



For the honey bread itself

*sliced sandwich bread
*clear honey
*softened unsalted butter
*5-6 marshmallows (depending on size)

Used as topping

*stewed pear slices
*whipped cream

In honor of the Christmas season we added some festive toppings in this recipe, but you can vary these endlessly to suit the season or you taste!


1.Pre heat your oven to 180 °C.

2.Take three slices of sandwich bread. On the inside of each slice, make 2 incisions horizontally and another 2 incisions vertically. Try not to slice through the crust during this step.

3. Drizzle some honey in the cuts of each slice.


4. Spread softened unsalted butter on top of each slice. And place the slices on top of a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.

5. Bake at 180 °C for 10 mins. Keep an eye on them, you don’t want the crust to get to hard.

6. Let the toast cool down a bit after baking.

7. While the toast is cooling down, put the marshmallows in a bowl and place the bowl in the microwave. Heat the marshmallows 30 seconds at a time, mixing in between. I only needed two bursts of 30 seconds.


8. Place one of the toast pieces on a plate and spread the marshmallow fluff evenly on top. Place the next piece of toast on top of the marshmallow fluff and press down gently. Spread the marshmallow fluff out on top of the second piece of toast. Place the last piece of toast on top and press down gently.


We decorated the honey bread by arranging the slices of stewed pear on top and placed a generous swirl of whipped cream over the fruit. We finished with red and green sprinkles.


It was our first time making it and trying it out and we thought it was delicious! 
A big thanks to Elke from Hallyucon for suggesting the recipe!
