Cream Cheese Garlic Bread (육쪽마늘빵)

I love Korean street food! I came to know about Cream Cheese Garlic Bread when I came across a video of a Korean shop selling these babies. It looks so good that I knew I had to recreate it the next day!

 

I decided to make the bread from scratch instead of getting off shelves so it could look as authentic as how the Koreans are selling.

I can tell you that it was damn good! My mum hates anything with cheese, I left half a slice for her to try it out thinking she would only take a bite. Guess what, she finished everything and told me it was amazing! Cream cheese, butter and garlic, you can’t really go wrong with this combination!

 As you can see, I added way too much dried herbs in my recipe. I have since then reduced the amount in the final recipe. Honestly, feel free to add more or less accordingly to your liking.

  • Remove the air from the dough on a dusted surface and shape into a disk. Divide it into 4 pieces. Roll them into a ball.
  • Let it proof for about an hour or until double in size. Spread some water onto the dough and bake it in a preheated oven at 180C for about 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Remove the bread from the oven once golden brown and cover lightly with a kitchen towel while cooling.
  • To make the filing, combine melted salted butter, egg, milk, parmesan cheese, dried herbs, sugar, minced garlic and salt together in a bowl. Set aside.
  • Slice the cooled buns into 8 pieces, making sure that the knife does not go all the way down.
  • Fill the buns with soften cream cheese.
  • Soak each bun with the garlic-butter mixture that we made earlier.
  • Dust with some potato flakes and pipe out more cream cheese onto the middle of the bun before baking it in a preheated oven at 180C for 25 minutes.
  • Serve warm!

I got to ‘D-I-Y’ my own Bibimbap at Joo Bar! They have a wide selection of ingredients to choose from to mix & match starting from just $10.90 with a choice of drink. What I love about is that they even have purple rice or quinoa to choose from!

Purple rice (also known as black rice), contains high amount of anthocyanins antioxidants that help to fight against heart disease and cancer. It is also a good source of fiber that helps with your digestion.

Their ingredients felt really fresh! I love how the way they minced their in-house kimchi into fine bits. That way, you could mix it later into your rice evenly. The kimchi had a balance of sour and spicy. I don’t like kimchi that is too sour, so theirs definitely suits my taste bud.

My favorite sides got to be sliced spams, bulgogi pork, sweet corn, minced kimchi and crispy tofu! All you need to do is mix and devour.
