Twisted doughnuts (Kkwabaegi 꽈배기)

Sometimes you just got to treat yourself to something naughty and sweet 🌱. Often when traveling you get accustomed to all sorts of new cultures and with that comes a variety of traditional foods. Unfortunately more often then not these seem to have animal products in them. So one of the things I love most about traveling is challenging myself to try re-create these traditional foods at home converting them to vegan. These are vegan “Kkwabaegi” which are doughnuts found in Korea.
