Serious Pancakes

Throughout our visit to Taiwan we have sampled various version of red bean pancakes. None were blog worthy. But last night at the Longshan night market we found one we really liked. The man who made them was very serious which seemed in stark contrast to the delicate and sweet treats he made. We were not alone in watching him work. There must have been 10 people silently watching him make pancakes. He first filled molds with a sweet batter.
He then pressed wells into the batter and filled them with either banana cream, peanuts, or red beans. You can see the big vats of filling in the first pic and in the second pic you can see it placed into the 3rd and 4th row of pancakes. I

In the first two rows are pancakes with thier caps on.
The final product was warm, still gooey in part (but in just the right way), and stuffed liberally with red beans. This was one of our best deserts of the trip.
