♥ Dorayaki ♥

Dorayaki is the favourite "Yummy Buns" of Doraemon, the cartoon. 
And hence is also known as Dora Cake! 

It is a basic Japanese pastry similar to sandwiched pancakes with filling of Anko (aka red bean paste). The red bean pancake has a specific curved shape of thicker middle and thin on the edges.

Sweet with a bit of toasted caramelized flavor and best to serve piping hot. If not serving them right away, wrap them in plastic wrap. They can be stored up to a 1 month too in freezer!

Serves 4
You'll need:
2 large eggs
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1 tbsp honey
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1-2 tbsp water, to adjust consistency
oil for frying
1/2 cup Anko (red bean paste), for filling

How to make dorayaki / Japanese red bean pancakes:
  1. In a large bowl, combine eggs, sugar, honey and whisk until fluffy.
  2. Sift flour and baking powder into the bowl and mix until combined. Rest in the fridge for 15 minutes.
  3. Stir in 1/2 tbsp water at a time to get the right consistency, which should be a slightly thicker than pancake batter.
  4. Heat a non-stick frying pan over medium-low heat. Using paper towel, oil the pan slightly. Drop batter to form pancake. When bubbles form, flip over and cook the other side.
  5. Transfer pancake onto a plate and cover with a damp kitchen paper to keep them moist.
  6. Sandwich with red bean paste, with more in the center to form a curve shape. Wrap them in plastic wrap until ready to serve.
