Best described as a dessert with red bean filling between two slices of sweet fluffy pancakes.
Made famous by the Japanese cartoon from the 70’s, you probably know this dessert from the anime character Doraemon who is crazy about this snack and falls for any trap involving them.
- Yields: 6 Dorayaki
1In a large bowl, combine eggs, sugar, vanilla essence and honey and whisk well until the mixture becomes fluffy.
2Sift flour and baking powder into the bowl and mix all together.
3The batter should be slightly smoother now. Stir in 1 tbsp of water. Depends on the size of eggs and how accurate your flour measurement is, the water amount may vary but it should be 1-2 tbsp.
4Heat a large non-stick frying pan over medium-low heat (close to low).
5Dip a paper towel in oil and coat the bottom of the pan with the oil. Then remove the oil completely
6With a ladle or a small measuring cup (use a 4 tbsp measuring cup), pour 3 tbsp of the batter from 3" (8 cm) above the pan to create 3" (8 cm) diameter pancakes.
7When you see the surface of the batter starting to bubble, flip over and cook the other side. It takes 1 minute and 15-30 seconds to cook one side and 20-30 seconds on the other side).
8Transfer to a plate and cover up with a damp towel to prevent from drying.
9No need to oil the pan again. Continue making pancakes (you can make about 12 pancakes).
10Make sandwich with red bean paste. Put more red bean paste in the center so the shape of Dorayaki will be curved (middle part should be thicker).
