He se fish shaped buns are a tasty egg free snack, and  always bring me a fond memories from my childhood in Korea.  In front of my middle school there were many food trucks that sold freshly cooked warm fish buns filled with red bean paste.  They were delicious!  I happened to find a griddle (which looks a lot like a waffle maker) made for these buns on a website. Now I can make these at home for my kids.  I sometimes use apple sauce/raisins as a filling instead of red bean paste.  They are a very nice egg free snack or even a dessert.  It makes 14 buns.

For batter:

1 cup all purpose flour
1/3 cup + 2 TBS whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 TBS brown sugar
2 TBS flax seeds, optional
3 TBS canola oil
2 cups milk

For filling:

1 cup apple sauce
1/2 cup raisins
1 TBS sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp corn starch

To make batter:

Mix all dry ingredients and whisk.
Add milk and oil and combine well.
The consistency of batter should resemble pancake batter.

To make filling:

Mix all ingredients.

Heat the griddle with the top part down on medium heat.
When the griddle is hot, wipe the both top and bottom surface with oil on a little piece of paper towel.
Spoon batter onto the bottom part to just cover the fish shaped hollow area and then drop 1 1/2 TBS of filling in the middle of the fish body.
Add some more batter on the top of the filling to just cover it and then pull the top part down and immediately turn the griddle over to cook the other side of fish
Cook, checking frequently until they are nicely browned on both sides showing the pattern of fish scales and fins.
