Taiyaki

What is Taiyaki? Taiyaki is a Japanese pancake-like cake traditionally filled with sweet red bean paste (although it can be filled with other things like custard, chocolate etc), molded into the shape of a fish (usually a carp) and fried to a golden perfection. Taiyaki is often sold in smaller towns of Japan in taiyaki shops or stands.

  • Cooking time is actually UNKNOWN and will likely vary with stoves!

  • Spread the oil in the Taiyaki-ki and pour the mixed ingredients into the Taiyaki-ki filling it half way.
  • Put Azuki beans over the mixed ingredients in the Taiyaki-ki.
  • Pour additional mixed ingredients on Azuki filling the Taiyaki-ki.
  • Close the Taiyaki-ki and heat both sides turning the Taiyaki-ki over at intervals.
  • Let it cool and enjoy the Taiyaki.
  • Additionally, a Taiyaki-ki, or fish mold, is needed to make Taiyaki. You can purchase one through yahoo stores.

    This is not a good recipe. It makes a dough so dry that there is not way it could pour into the mold, which is how authentic taiyaki is made. I will just ask my mom for the real recipe, which I should've done in the first place.
