Halloween Pumpkin Taiyaki !!

Pumpkin! Halloween time!! Taiyaki filled  with pumpkin Cream Yummy!!

This is highly seasonal of the Taiyaki  filling with Pumpkin fillings. The Fall is one of the best season to taste the greatness from the earth created. Taiyaki (たい焼き, , literally “baked sea bream?) is a Japanese fish-shaped cake. The most common filling is red bean paste that is made from sweetened azuki beans. Taiyaki is made using regular pancake or waffle batter. The batter is poured into a fish-shaped mold for each side. The filling is then put on one side and the mold is closed. It is then cooked on both sides until golden brown.

Other common fillings may be custard, chocolate, or cheese. Some shops even sell taiyaki with okonomiyaki, gyoza filling, or a sausage inside.

The one of the seasonal foods is PUMPKIN. I have a passion for pumpkin. I used to bake pie….. too. Well. Pumpkin cream is filled with the traditional Japanese sweets, savory on the street foods, now invented new idea! Taiyaki is traditionally filled with red beans or custard cream, and lightly golden brown crusted pressed sweets are very popular in Japan. I think this is you can find only in Japan. And The seasonal Pumpkin filling is served  when the only fall season ! This gives me comfort !! I love the shape of fish and wormth of handful Taiyaki !! lovely
