Taiyaki for breakfast!

Taiyaki -  Recipe Review (The recipe)
My boyfriend has been wanting to make taiyaki for ages! He went online and ordered the special fish-shaped pan just so we could make some.

The batter recipe was very easy and we already had all of the ingredients in our pantry. (Which is always a plus. I hate running out at the last minute to get exotic grocery items.)

Inside each taiyaki is a generous amount of red bean paste. This ingredient might be a little tricky to find in an American grocery store, but every Asian market carries it. (We picked up a package during our last Asian Food Market trip, so we had it on hand.)
  • Cake Flour
  • 1 egg
  • Sugar
  • Baking Powder
  • Milk
  • **Red Bean Paste for Filling 
** You can use whatever filling you’d like. If you don’t have red bean paste, try Nutella, or peanutbutter, or marshmallow fluff…the possibilities are endless!

The finished product is a warm, fish-shaped, cake filled with creamy bean paste. It’s texture is similar to a pancake, light and fluffy, which would work well with fruity fillings.

Although we burned our first attempt, we got into the swing of things right away and these were super easy to make. (You just need a fancy pan. Ebay has them MUCH cheaper than Amazon.)
