Red Bean Taiwan Wheel Cake and a Nordic Ware Eggs Plus Pan Review

I am super excited to be sharing with you these Taiwan Wheel Cakes that I made using the Nordic Ware Eggs Plus Pan. I received this awesome Nordic Ware swag along with their Microwaveable Prep & Serve Bowl Set for the upcoming Food Bloggers of Canada conference in October. 

These are super delicious and you can choose to put whatever filling you want inside. The first time I made these we filled it with fresh blueberries. Wheel Cakes are a street food dish often found in Tawian and other parts of Asia. There are often a variety of different fillings but red bean is the most popular.

Ingredients for the Red Bean Taiwan Wheel Cake with the Nordic Ware
Eggs Plus Pan and the prep bowls.

Red Bean Taiwan Wheel Cake Recipe

Yield: 6 Red Bean Wheel Cakes

Wet Ingredients
  • 3 Large Eggs (160g)
  • 1.5 Cups of Milk (320ml)
  • 3 oz of Melted Butter (80g)
  • 1 tsp of Vanilla
Dry Ingredients
  • 1.75 Cups of Flour (320g)
  • 2 Tbsp of Sugar
  • 2 Tsp of Baking Powder
  • 1 tsp of Salt
Extra Ingredients
  • Oil
  • Pack of Red Bean Paste
  1. Combine the Wet Ingredients and whisk until they are combined. Then combine/sift the dry ingredients. Next, add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. Stir until the batter is smooth and transfer to a measuring cup with a spout. Place the Nordic Ware Eggs Plus Pan on the largest burner on your stove and set the temperature to medium heat.
  2. Brush oil into each cup.
  3. When the pan is warm-hot pour the batter about half way up the cup.
  4. Wait 90 seconds and put 1 scoop of red bean in the middle of the batter of two of the cups.
  5. Wait another 1-2 minutes for the non filled batter to cook most of the way through - the top should not be liquid, just slightly runny.
  6. Flip the non filled half onto the top of the one that is filled.
  7. Press down lightly so that the two halves join together.
  8. Wait 1-2 minutes for the wheel cake to continue cooking.
  9. Flip the entire cake and cook on the other side for another minute.
  10. Take the wheel cake out of the pan and place it on a cooling rack or serve immediately.

Overall, the Nordic Ware Eggs Plus Pan demonstrated even heating throughout as can be seen in the picture above. The non-stick surface made it really easy to pop the wheel cakes out, and no additional oil was even needed before putting in more batter. I also did use the pan for making crustless quiches which I'll blog in another post. 

I am so happy to see how amazing these Taiwan Wheel Cakes turned out! Which filling would you put in these Taiwan Wheel Cakes? Share your thoughts below or if you make this recipe let me know in the comments below.


  1. Looks delicious, Lillian! Brings back memories of visiting the Shih-lin Night Market a couple of years ago.

  2. Thanks! Glad they turned out well! Which filling were your favourite?

    Wow - these look so special, yet simple to do - and just the kind of flavours I love. I wish I had this pan!

  4. I need this pan! I like how you can fill them with different ingredients. My kids would really like the blueberries.

  5. Wow! I'd never heard of Taiwan wheel cakes! So, you can fill them with anything? I'd like to try with an apple filling, but I might cook the apples first, maybe with some caramel ;)

  6. These are so good! They are typically seen during chinese night markets in Taiwan or other asian places. There are so many great flavours you can put in them such as custard, sweet condensed milk, or even s'mores!

  7. Hi Janice! Yes, you could use apples as a filling but you would have to pre-cook the filling (to the firmness you desire) before you put it into the wheel cakes. Typically the wheel cakes are a bit smaller but this pan lent itself well to the making of them. Usually when I see them make it they have a bunch of fillings available so you can order various flavours.

  8. @angie Yes! surprisingly I have found several uses for the pan other than quiche or eggs. If you scroll through my instagram feed you might find the blueberry wheel cake that I made! :)

  9. I had never heard of Taiwan wheel cakes either! These look scrumptious..... I might need to buy a pan like this though. Thank you for sharing such a wonderful recipe.

  10. No problem. Hope you get a chance to try this sometime. If you live in Vancouver or visit there they will have it sometimes. There is also a place in Edmonton that makes them!

  11. Hi Gianni, just wanted to follow up and let you know that you can potentially win the eggs plus pan from me! Check out my newest post

  12. Yes for sure! Did you get the pan with your fbc swag?
