Total time: 
Serves: makes 7
  • (A)
  • 1 cup (125g) Plain flour
  • 1½ tsp Baking Powder
  • 2 tbsp Sugar
  • ½ tsp Salt
  • (B)
  • 1 cup (240ml) milk
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 tbsp melted butter or vegetable oil
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract (optional)
  • Fillings: red bean paste (or other fillings of your choice)
  1. Combine (A) in a mixing bowl. Mix well. Combine (B) in a measuring cup, mix well.
  2. Pour (B) into (A). Use a hand whisk to stir till just incorporated (should take less than 30 seconds, do not over mix). Transfer the batter to a clean measuring cup for easy pouring.
  3. Preheat Taiyaki pan over medium low heat for about 30 seconds, brush both side of the pan with little butter . (grease the mould every time before adding batter) Add batter till about 80% full, add 1 spoon of fillings at the centre then cover the red paste with little batter and fill up the "tail".
  4. Cover the pan and flip the pan immediately. Cook over medium low heat for about 3 mins, flip and cook for another 2-3 mins till both sides become golden brown. You may open the pan in between to check the colour but not the first 2 mins (adjust the cooking time according to the size of Taiyaki and your own stove).Recipe adapted from Cook.Bake.Love
