Recipe from the hairy bikers. Unfortunately my hot crust pastry was a bit rubbish.
Anna Jones recipe from here — very tasty! The tomato sauce made with cherry tomatoes works really well. But N wanted me to make the gnocchi smaller next time.
The recipe was this one and it’s very tasty indeed. The naans are shop-bought.
N said “better than Greggs”.
Tastes even better cold the next day.
A bit of an experiment which went wrong. I used a modification of Delia’s pancake recipe, using:
- 220g plain flour
- 4 eggs
- pinch of salt
- 2 tablespoons of sugar
- 200ml milk + 75ml water (half of the original recipe)
The taiyaki took longer to cook — about 3 minutes each side — and were soft and “deflated” after cooking.
I think the original recipe is still the better one because the batter is much stiffer and so makes firmer taiyaki.
Live and learn.
