Default Taiyaki, tabetai!

Here's a little tip: In Japan, taiyaki is a "winter food" and is not offered in the summer. I've had anpan and anman in its stead, but they lack a certain something, I'm sure.

それで、たいやきを作ろう! I have no idea how, but I remember seeing English instructions somewhere online, once.

Wouldn't you need a taiyaki iron to get one in the shape of a fish? I think my friend once just made some by using pancake mix and some red bean paste :D

I had taiyaki two weeks ago at San Francisco's Japantown, despite it not being winter. :3

I guess it's only truly seasonal in Japan, huh?

I've challenged using a milk carton instead of a iron mold.
It's difficult to beat professional technique. I couldn't evenly bake in a thin, small frying-pan.

Here ya go...

*for home use : about $20?
http://homepage3.nifty.com/~yamashita/event/h-tai.html

*for professional use: up to $1500
http://homepage3.nifty.com/~yamashita/event/tai.html

Make 20 of them at a time! Wow!
That should make any girl (or a guy) full.

But they might not sell overseas...

And maybe this is the page Shii mentioned:

Hmm, but no instructions on how to fill it with chocolate...

I also feel that something is wrong. Gao.

edit You know how much money someone can possibly make by introducing stegoyaki molds to the fanboys? :D I'd buy one!

I can't say I've had the pleasure of fresh taiyaki, but the local asian market does sell frozen packages of two. They cook up nicely inside of a toaster oven - a few minutes on each side ensures the outside is nice and crisp and the inside isn't still frozen. I think I've still got a package in my freezer for when the cold weather rolls around again...

Meanwhile, the Japanese market 'round these parts sells them in packs of five. :3 Yummy!
