I'd been trying to find another use for my takoyaki pan. I figure it has to have some other application otherwise it takes up too much space in the kitchen! A friend commented that an ebelskiver (a Danish spherical pancake) worked the same way but it was definitely bigger than a takoyaki.
So then a light bulb dinged in my head. Why not make smaller ebelskivers using the takoyaki pan?
And I did... one filled with diced apple, and the other filled with peanut butter and chocolate chips...
Yes, I really used the takoyaki pan!!!
I used the recipe by Serious Eats, found here - http://www.seriouseats.com/recipes/2012/12/ebelskivers-danish-pancakes-lingonberry-jam-recipe.html.
