fishy fishy fish bread

I tried out the fish-shaped hot cake pan that I got for my birthday. I can see it's going to take some practice, getting the right amount of batter and filling, and the right cooking time and temperature. I ended up with some pretty misshapen fish.



I used this recipe for the batter. The traditional filling is red bean paste (팥). I thought I'd try strawberries.

Warm up the pan on the stove, add batter, add filling, more batter on top, close the pan--



Cook on both sides--



Ta da! Fish!



(We had eaten some of the uglier ones by this point.)  They tasted pretty good, though the texture wasn't quite like the Korean version.



"Hey Andy, want a fish?"



Andy is intrigued. Kate decided she doesn't like cooked strawberries, but she liked the tail part.

In other news, we are not doing so well with the time change.  Andy was up and bouncing off the walls till 1:00 in the morning, and then Kate woke up at about 2:30 and couldn't get back to sleep.  Oy.  Long night.

I've had the Japanese version before! Very very yummy. DH would be thrilled if I had one of those pans.

I love the letter resourcefulness, and the careful placement of the letter in the square of the linoleum. Very cool.

Fun! Are there other shapes or is fish traditional?

I haven't seen anything else quite like this. There might be something!
