Takoyaki Cake Pops - Video Recipe

This video will show you how to make Takoyaki-like Cake Pops using a Nordic Ware's Baking Pan.

FYI: Takoyaki is a popular Japanese dumpling made of batter, diced octopus, tenkasu (tempura scraps), beni shoga (red pickled ginger), and aonegi (green onion), topped with okonomiyaki sauce, mayonnaise, aonori (green laver), and katsuobushi (bonito flakes).

Takoyaki Cake Pops

Difficulty: Easy
Time: 20min + baking & cooling & decorating time
Number of servings: 24 cake pops

1cup = 250ml or 250cc

((Cake Pops))
3/4 cup white chocolate chips (or 3 bars Meiji White Chocolate)
1/2 cup (100g=3.5oz.) butter
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
3/4 cup flour (or 3/4 cup cake flour + 1 tsp. baking powder)
1/4 tsp. salt
HERSHEY'S Chocolate Syrup
Morinaga Rennyu (condensed milk)
matcha green tea powder
goji berries (Chinese wolfberries)

((Cake Pops))
1. Preheat the oven to 170C (338F). Grease and flour pan.
2. In medium saucepan, over low heat, melt white chocolate chips (or 3 bars Meiji White Chocolate) and butter together. (Stop the heat when the butter starts to melt and mix with residual heat with patience. Otherwise the mixture will separate into a solid blob and an oily part.) Stir until smooth. Then pour into medium bowl.
3. Add sugar and mix until blended. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition.
4. Sift in flour and salt. Stir until blended.
5. Spoon the batter into bottom half of pan (without holes) filling each well so it mounds over the top of the pan. (Norpro 1 tbsp. scoop works perfect.) (or, transfer the batter to a pastry bag and pipe it onto the pan.)
6. Place top half of pan on top and secure with keys. Bake for 15-18 minutes, until toothpick inserted comes out almost clean.
7. Cool 5 minutes in pan, then remove cake pops from pan to cool completely. Trim the edges of cake pops, if needed.
1. Thinly slice goji berries to look like beni shoga (red pickled ginger).
2. Place the cake pops in a plastic container.
3. Top with HERSHEY'S Chocolate Syrup to look like Takoyaki sauce and Morinaga Rennyu (condensed milk) to look like mayonnaise. Sprinkle with matcha green tea powder to look like aonori (green laver) and top with sliced goji berries. Eat with a toothpick.
