So, I’ve posted before about how much I love Dorayaki, the sweet Japanese pancake dessert filled with sweet red bean. I especially like it when it comes in a fish shape, just because it’s so cute!
I read a recipe recently that looked pretty simple, so I decided to try making them myself. It was a lot of fun, and really quite simple, but mine didn’t turn out as fluffy as they are supposed to be. I think I either over-beat them, or added too much flour in my conversion from g to cups.
But either way, they were delicious, especially when they were still hot and the red bean filling was gooey and melting! I will definitely be trying this recipe again, so I thought I’d share it here with you. Let me know how yours turn out!
Dorayaki (Recipe from Masakan Istimewa’s Blog)
- 3 large eggs
- 8 tbsp sugar
- 5 tbsp milk
- 2 tsp Honey
- 180g self rising flour
- Sweet red bean (you can buy this at an Asian Grocery store in a can)
- Beat eggs, and add in sugar. Mix well.
- Add honey and milk and mix.
- Sift in flour, slowly. Watch out for the texture…stop adding flour if it gets too thick!
- Cover with plastic wrap, and let sit for 30 minutes.
- Pan-fry in non-stick pan in desired shape (I made mine mini).
- Take two pancakes that are roughly the same shape and make a sandwich with the red bean as the filling.
