This is our family's standard date-maki. It's fluffy and moist!
Since everyone in my family loves date-maki, I always make it.I've made it with different ingredients, but this method of whipping the egg and hanpen separately received rave reviews.
This recipe calls for separate whipping of the ingredients for a fluffy result.I put the baking tray inside the oven when I preheat. This way, both sides brown nicely, as shown in the photos.The pattern on the edges of the date-maki are made using an "oni-su" (thick-slatted bamboo sushi mat), but a regular sushi mat will do.
