The Difference Between Korean and American-Style Donuts

Before we give you the details on the best donuts in Pyeongtaeks, let’s discuss the differences between Korean and American-style donuts. Not all donuts are created the same. In fact, donuts often look very different across cultures.

Typically when Americans think of donuts, they often think of lightly fried/baked dough (usually made from wheat flour) with a variety of flavors and even toppings or glazes. However, Korean donuts or kkwabaegi (꽈배기) are twisted donuts that may be made from wheat or rice flour with a slightly sweet taste. Even the texture of many Korean donuts and American donuts vary. While Korean donuts are often more chewy while American donuts are often more fluffy or cakey in texture.

Ingredients and Flavors

Kkwabaegi often may incorporate additional flavors like cinnamon, vanilla, or black sesame. Also, they tend to have a light, slightly sweet taste. American donuts come in a wide variety of flavors, such as glazed, chocolate, jelly-filled, cream-filled, and many more. Depending upon the ingredients, they can range from sweet to savory.

Shape and Appearance

Kkwabaegi is often twisted or braided into a long shape and often resembles a twisted rope or braid. They are usually small in size and have a crunchy exterior texture due to frying. American donuts are typically round with a hole in the center However, there are also filled donuts without holes. In addition, they can vary in size, from small bite-sized “donut holes” to larger, traditional donuts.

Cooking Method

Kkwabaegi is deep-fried until golden brown and develops a crispy exterior. American donuts are also deep-fried or sometimes baked.

Toppings and Glazes

Kkwabaegi is often coated with a light syrup glaze or rolled in sugar immediately after frying. American donuts often have a wide range of glazes and toppings. Some of these include sugar glaze, chocolate glaze, sprinkles, powdered sugar, and various flavored fillings.
