Dorayaki- for fans of Doraemon
Saturday, 13 August 2011 | posted by Simply bakes

The bake of the day is Darayaki. Yes, i have been on a Japanese snack roll. But how can we ever say no to Doraemon? My sister is a big fan of Doraemon (Fancy her still liking Doraemon at her age sigh haha). So, just for fun, i went to search for how to make Dorayaki, a japanese snack which Doraemon loves to eat and came across the most inspiring blog: www.dailydelicious.blogspot.com . Awh, you cannot deny that Doraemon is cute, even though we have grown out of our kiddy years.

So mothers or homemakers out there who have kids, why not try making these Daorayaki for your kids? Tell them Doraemon eats them too:) Dorayaki is something like pancakes, but we sandwich them with sweet red bean paste. The batter that this recipe yields results in an amazingly light and fluffy pancake. It is soft and cottony in texture which really just melts like ice cream in your mouth. Might be exaggerating a tad bit but i swear its true. The aftertaste that lingers in your mouth is a sweet honey taste. Even though this recipe only includes a small amount of honey, the taste is really strong and very delicious. When you panfry these pancakes, be very sure to keep a close eye on them and have swift movements because these pancakes brown very quickly due to the sugars in them. as long as you see bubbles on its sides and its firm enough to flip over, flip over! It took me 2 tries to get them perfect. :)

Ingredients (Makes 6 sandwiched Dorayaki)
120g cake flour (i used plain flour), sifted.
2 eggs at room temperature
100g sugar
1 tbsp honey
50 ml water
360 g sweetened red bean paste (get the recipe from http://simplybakess.blogspot.com/search/label/Japanese%20snacks)

Beat the eggs and the sugar with an electric mixer until very light and pale in colour. It is very thick and must be able to form a ribonning effect. Add in the honey and whick to combine. Add in water and whick to combine. Then, sift in the cake flour and whisk at low speed until thoroughly combined. cover the batter with a plastic wrap and leave to rest for 30 minutes.
Heat a non stick frying pan on low heat and scoop up some batter with an ice cream scoop (I used a medium sized one) into the pan. As long as it is the size of a Dorayaki. Dont use any oil because it will discolour the Dorayaki but a non stick pan is essential. As lon as you see bubbles on the sides or surface then the pancake is ready to be fliped over.
Sandwich your Dorayaki with sweetened red bean paste, cover in an airtight container to store.
