So today I've finally made my firsts dorayaki!
This is how they turned out. Filled some with azuki beans and other with Nutella. They are simply amazing! :D
I've eat them the first time in Japan many years ago, but they were packaged snacks from a supermarket.
These home made are another story :D

I've followed the recipe from this site: www.justonecookbook.com/recipe…

I made them yesterday from the same recipe but next time I'm going to use xylitol instead of sugar. First time I wanted to try original recipe but sugar is unhealthy so I'm going to try to do them healthier.

Normally they should be brighter but my looks the same. I think it's the problem with electric stove on 4 was too much on 3 not enough. I hope you know what I'm talking about :).

Nice photo :).

Hello there, :3 I saw this in the :iconcritique-exchange: so here are some thoughts.
First, the strong points- your lighting is perfect. The image is not washed out nor too dark, so great job there.  Also, great detail; it's almost like I can taste them. making pancaek  Nice setup too. The tablecloth seems to match the flowers and food perfectly.
Now, for my suggestions...I think this picture is almost too crisp- I would suggest focusing in more on a specific area (like either the food, or just the flowers, but not both).  This would make the background blurred out and less of a distraction. Also, you could try adding some grain or marks to the image using gimp or another photo editor to give a sort of vintage feel.  This photo is physically arranged so nicely that I wish there was something in it to make it stand out a little more.  So anyways, that's my suggestions. Hope this was helpful. turquoise heart bullet  Keep up the great work!
