* You can also use "soft tofu" to make the buns even fluffier. It will make the dough quite soft so giving it a nice shape will become trickier. You can dust the dough with flour as you work on it, it will help (not too much though).
3.5g dry yeast
1. Add all the ingredients in the pan of your bread machine. Add yeast in the yeast compartment. Select dough cycle and press start as per manufacturer's instructions.
2. When the dough cycle is complete, remove the dough from the machine and place on a floured surface.
3. Punch the dough down and divide it in 6 pieces. Cover it with a damp cloth. Let it rest for about 15min.
4. Shape each piece into a round ball with a line in the middle of the bun, using a stick (eg.g chopsticks). Arrange on lined baking trays. Cover and let rise for 40~60min in a warm place or until the dough has doubled in volume. Lightly sprinkle flour over the bread, using a cooking sieve.
5. Preheat the oven to 180℃ degree. Reduce the heat to 150℃ degree and bake for about 15 min. Remove from the oven and let it cool down on a wire rack.
You will need to use a [https://amzn.to/3cBQEoz] for this recipe ;-)

4. Grease a taiyaki pan lightly with vegetable oil and pre-warm over a medium heat. Pour the taiyaki batter thinly on the pan. Put the filling you want in the center of each taiyaki and spoon some more batter on top to cover the filling.
5. Close the lid and flip the taiyaki pan to cook the other side of taiyaki. Cook for about 1 to 2 minutes, open and check the progress. If you cook longer the taiyaki will get golden brown and crispy (if you like like i do)
