Those little pastries I’ve been calling stuffed pancakes, I finally got their real name, oobanyaki. Here’s the description from Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Imagawayaki.

I like the oobanyaki from the Minamoto Kitchoan shop, sweet, but not teeth hurtingly sweet.

On the way back from church this Sunday, passed the shop and saw sweet potato oobanyaki. Turns out, it was the first day they were making the sweet potato flavor. Had to try.



Sweet potato on the left and middle, chocolate on the right. Thought I’d bring home for The Cat to try.

Enjoy. Eat well.
