This morning I finally received this lovely new 'baby' from Amazon - a takoyaki pan :)! Well, it's actually not a takoyaki pan, but a pan for making Danish Aebleskiver (some kind of Danish Poffertjes) or German Pförtchen, but it's the closest one to Takoyaki pan I could find here in Germany. Around two years ago I bought a Poffertjes pan with the hope that I would be able to make some takoyaki with it. Unfortunately the holes were not deep enough for making takoyaki (silly me didn't even really know what a poffertjes looked like...!), so even though the taste was fine, my takoyaki were all flat instead of round. However, from now on I wouldn't have such a problem anymore...:).
Takoyaki making - you can see I also used shrimps besides squid ( couldn't find octopus - well, maybe I should give Paul the Octopus a visit one day ;)!)
I used the recipe from the Cooking With Dog video which you can see below. I absolutely love Cooking With Dog channel, it's cute, the recipes are clear and the foods all look great...:)!
