You are reading a food blog called mmm-yoso!!! Kirk, who usually writes about His food adventures, is somewhere in the world having those adventures. Ed(from Yuma) is planning His adventures. Cathy is writing about an adventure around here.
On the center section are already baked red bean paste pancakes. The fresh batter is being baked in the unique pan and when finished baking (the top is baked/not sticky but not browned...with the rounded top-like what happens when you make cupcakes) and then is placed on top of another baked half, which has filling in it (in this case, the custard cream) the two halves manage to stay together, because they are both hot and ready when placed on top of each other.
Here's a cross section view. You can see the dense yet bubbly batter is all baked, with nice outer crusts. The custard is not runny and the red bean paste has a nice texture. These were still warm when we got home...so good.
I hope you are all having a nice weekend!
