Learn how to store leftovers and reheat your okonomiyaki without losing its crispiness.


  • 1 batch of prepared Broccoli Prawns Okonomiyaki batter (as per the original recipe)
  • Cooking spray or parchment paper


  • Preheat the Oven: Start by preheating your oven to 350°F (175°C). Ensure you have a rack placed in the center position.
  • Prepare the Baking Sheet: Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly grease it with cooking spray to prevent the okonomiyaki from sticking.
  • Shape the Okonomiyaki: Pour a ladleful of the prepared Broccoli Prawns Okonomiyaki batter onto the lined or greased baking sheet. Use a spatula to shape it into a round or oval pancake, just as you would on a griddle or skillet.
  • Bake the Okonomiyaki: Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven and let the okonomiyaki cook for about 15-20 minutes. You can check for doneness by inserting a toothpick or knife into the center; it should come out clean when it’s ready.
  • Broil for Crispiness: If you’d like a crispy top, switch the oven to broil for the last 2-3 minutes of cooking. Keep an eye on it to prevent burning.
  • Serve and Enjoy: Once your Broccoli Prawns Okonomiyaki is cooked to perfection, carefully remove it from the oven, slice it into wedges, and serve hot. Garnish with your favorite okonomiyaki sauce, mayonnaise, bonito flakes, and seaweed flakes.
