Pancake Balls

Hi Guys!

Ever since our father brought us to Rustan's Cubao to eat Samurai's Takoyaki (Japanese Octopus Balls) when we were kids, we've been big Takoyaki fans. We can gobble a lot of this Japanese street food. We love it so much that my brother bought a Takoyaki pan and even studied how to make it.

Here's a video on how to cook Takoyaki.

Anyway, this post is not actually how to make Takoyaki but of a snack or dessert that's inspired from our favorite street food.

I thought of adding a little twist to our favorite snack - pancakes - and cook it on the Takoyaki pan since they both have the same concept. 


250g Pancake Mix
1 Egg
2 tbsp oil
3/4 cup water
Powedered Sugar
Clara Ole Pancake Syrup


1. Mix Pancake mix, egg, oil, and water (or follow instructions on the box). Set aside.
2. Heat  and brush oil on the Takoyaki pan.
3. Pour the batter on the pan, be sure not to fill it all the way up. 
4. Add chocolate chunks in the middle.
5. Once the batter starts to show bubbles, gently flip the batter around and fill it once more with batter to create the "ball".

Creating the ball takes practice because it can be quite tricky. Practice makes perfect.

6. Once the balls are formed and golden brown, serve on a plate and sprinkle powdered sugar and drizzle pancake syrup on top. I love Clara Ole's Pancake Syrup in Cinnamon flavor
7. Enjoy.

This is a great and fun alternative to our all-time favorite pancakes. I am sure your kids will love munching on these.

Clara Ole offers a wide variety of syrups to add a little more pizzazz on your desserts and snacks. There's always something for everyone's sweet tooth (or in my case, teeth).
