Japanese Pancakes (Okonomiyaki)

These Japanese pancakes are usually made in a large round resembling a pizza and cut into wedges. This recipe scales down this tasty treat to small pancakes for pickup food at a party. Traditional Okonomiyaki contain the somewhat gelatinous pureed mountain yam that helps hold the pancake together. Since it may be difficult to find, this recipe uses tapioca flour instead with good results.
