happy birthday

Today is Satoshi's birthday. I didn't get around to making him a cake, so I bought these dorayaki by Iron Chef Sakai instead.

I bought two types---flan sandwiched between sweet pancakes 168 yen (about US$1.68)and flan sandwiched between a cake made from wasanbon (Japanese confection sugar) 199 yen (about US$1.99). I stuck a candle in one of them and we split them after he blew the candle out.

He had to work today, so we had these with our breakfast since he comes home so late.

I liked the pancake version better than the cake, Satoshi liked the cake version better than the pancake.

The flan is very gelatinous to keep its shape, but still very rich.

Happy Birthday Satoshi!
