Taiyaki (たい焼き)


Taiyaki (たい焼き) is a Japanese fish shaped pancake which is commonly filled with red bean paste that is made from sweetened azuki beans. But in these day, there are many other fillings such as custard, chocolate, cream cheese or even sausage in it.

As usual the creative and wonder members in Munch Ministry facebook group always bring up interesting kitchen gadgets to share with the rest of the members and just recently, there is a rave in making these cute Taiyaki in the group due to some promotion on the Taiyaki Pan shown above.

These yummy little treat is actually very easy to make at home if you have a Taiyaki Pan. What you required is to get hold a pack of Pancake Premix plus some Instant Fillings such as Cream Cheese, Nutella, Peanut Butter, Kaya and etc.


(Make: 6 |            Preparation: 3 minutes |             Cooking: 20 minutes)

Ingredients:
150g (1 sachet) Morinaga Pancake Premix
1 Large Egg, 60g
100ml Fresh Milk
1/2 Tablespoon Cornflour
Some Nutella, Peanut Butter, Cream Cheese or etc
1 Taiyaki Pan


Method:-
1. Whisk egg and milk together in a mixing bowl or jug till combined. Add in 1 sachet of Morinaga pancake premix and stir till the mixture resemble cake batter.

2. Lightly brush oil on both inner sides of the Taiyaki pan. Preheat it 30 seconds before ladle a small amount of batter(refer to the step-by-step photo above) to the preheated pan (on one deeper print side).

3. Add your desire fillings such as 1 tablespoon of nutella/peanut. Next pour a little more batter just enough to cover the paste. Close the pan and cook for 1 minute 20 seconds on medium low heat.

4. Flip the pan over, cook for another 1 minute or more, open the pan slight and check the colour of the fish. Careful not to overcook and burn it as they should be golden brown on each side.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
NOTE:-
~ To get a nice evenly golden brown colour for your Taiyaki, the "secret" lies on the heat and timing for cooking the Taiyaki.

Above is my first batch of assorted Taiyaki (たい焼き) made using Morinaga Pancake Premix filled with some of our favourite spread such as Cream Cheese and Nutella . And all these are made in less than 30 minutes where you can prepared a delicious and healthy breakfast or snack for your kids. I am sure nobody will be able to resists a piping hot Taiyaki with crispy outsider layer and soft inner texture with oozing filling in their mouth.

  5. Hello! Can I check when was the munch ministry order for the pan? Still ongoing? I didn't see it.. Checked out gmarket but they only have dual fish pans. I would prefer single pan.

    1. Munch Ministry did not organise any spree on this. Most of them get it from department store such as Isetan, Giant, Best, John Little. Actually double pan is better cos you can do 2 at a time :)

  7. I remember watching a pokemon episode where Ash was eating one of these in a carnival. Even in the anime it looked so good that I ran to my mom asking her to make me some XD but needless to say she didn't have any idea how to make them...This just brought back so many great memories thanks so much!!!
