Taiyaki are tasty little fish-shaped cakes with red beans in the center. That doesn't sound that good, but Japanese red beans - anko, or adzuki - are sweet and quite suitable for snacks and desserts. Taiyaki are easy to make, which is good considering that the packaging and documentation for this cooker is all in Japanese.
Basically, you heat this over your stove. I tried using it on an electric burner, and believe it or not it works just fine that way. Heat the taiyaki-ki up on both sides until water sizzles on the cooking surface, then give it a light dash of cooking spray and spoon in a thin layer of batter, working from the tail to the body. (You can Google up a recipe, but I'm lazy and use pancake mix.) Add some red beans to the body area, then more batter to cover, and then close the mold. Cook for a few minutes on each side until golden brown. Voila, tasty sweet fish-shaped snack cakes!
You can vary the recipe by using chocolate, shrimp paste, peanut butter, or whatever you like as fillings.
I used waffle mix and put some red bean paste (Oriental store) as fillings and make some fish cake, very cute. I also used raspberry and blueberry as alternatives. I am going to let my imagination juice flow and seek for some other fillings. (Chestnut paste, sesame paste, berries w/marmalade, custard cream........) Um..... they are so yum yum.
I'd recommend using waffle mix rather than pancake mix - waffle mix gives you a much lighter and fluffier texture. However, if you'd like to have a fish with substance (smile), use pancake mix - the texture is much more heavy. Just like a pancake fish and fillings cannot be easily put into the fish.
Do not put the fish maker on the BBQ, a regular stove top will do the job. Always heat up the maker first for a few minutes and spray with some PAM or spread a bit of butter inside - it prevents stickniess. Turn down the temperature to medium and pour some thin batter to coat the fish maker pan (one side only). Do not over fill. Put your fillings carefully into the center of the fish - they will sink into the batter or you can use a small spoon to help them sink. Pour in more batter to cover the fillings. Close it tight and turn it around to warm the other side. Monitor the temperature as it burns easily.
After 2-3 minutes - voila - here comes 2 lovely fish with yummy fillings splashing onto your table. I make them on the weekends and my friends just love them.Read more ›
There you have a basic recipe for the dough (mix all the ingredients well):
200 gr flour
4 tbsp sugar
220 ml water
1/2 tsp baking powder
You can search some videos to see how they make the taiyakis.
Cooking: This taiyaki pan is easy enough to use. The most difficult part is getting the right amount of filling and making sure it's evenly distributed. Instead of using red bean paste, I often use Nutella. It's far more readily available. As for the batter, generally any pancake recipe will work fine as long as it's one that's a bit more on the sweet side. You can also find recipes in The Manga Cookbook.
Cleaning: Because of all the crevices in this pan, you want to make sure that you clean it really well after you use it. I also suggest an oil with a high smoke point. Vegetable oil tends to leave a residue so ghee (clarified butter) might be a better option.
