Fried Honey Cake (Yakgwa)

YakgwaRecently I’m into this little cake called “Yakgwa” (약과).

Yakgwa is a Korean traditional cake made from wheat flour, oil, and some honey.

I haven’t bought this in a while, but during the chuseok holiday it grabbed my attention.

It is one of the “Jesa” (memorial service for the ancestor) foods. But I am just enjoying it as my snack food. 🙂

Its price ranges from 900 to 1200 won (US $0.95 to 1.25) for this long pack (Below). (I think it is quite cheap.)
