  1. In large bowl, combine all-purpose flour, salt, sugar, baking powder, cornstarch, water, hondashi and mirin. Mix well, cover and keep in the refrigerator for about an hour.
  2. Next, add Japanese eggs, breadcrumbs, and squid to the chilled batter. Season with salt and pepper then mix well. Next, fold in the chopped cabbage.
  3. To cook, heat some oil in a non-stick pan over medium to high heat. Place a scoop of batter on the pan, forming a round pancake. Do not flatten it too much.
  4. Place 2-3 pieces of bacon on top of the okonomiyaki. When the bottom is nicely brown, turn it over to cook the other side.  Cover the pan and cook for another ten minutes.
  5. Transfer the okonomiyaki to a big plate. Top with bonito flakes, nori flakes, and chopped green onions. Drizzle with Japanese mayonnaise and okonomiyaki sauce.
