Mung Bean Dorayaki Sandwiched Pancakes

"Dorayaki" is a popular tea snack or dessert in Japan, which consists of two spongecake-like pancakes sandwiched typically with a red bean filling. You may also use nutella, jam, cheese as a filling.

  1. Whisk together flour, baking powder and baking soda. Sift and set aside. Whip the whole eggs and sugar until creamy and lemon white in colour. Sift the flour mixture into the whipped eggs. Fold to combine. Mix in honey and milk. Cover it with plastic wrap and let rest for 30 minutes.
  2. Set a nonstick frying pan over medium heat and swab on some vegetable oil with a paper towel. Drop in about 1-2 tablespoons of the batter. Cook over the low heat until brown and the tiny bubbles appear on the pancake. Flip and cook another side for about 30 seconds. Transfer to a serving plate. Continue the same with the rest of batter.
  3. Spread some red bean paste onto a pancake and top with another pancake. Serve with a cup of hot tea.

I love dorayaki coz it always reminds me of Doraemon, hehe

Wow...these are really cool looking! Do you eat them like a sandwich or with a knife & fork? I'm curious to try one!

The Little Teochew 16/8/09 15:13

I love these, with azuki bean filling, please! Can I substitute caramel syrup with honey, I wonder? As usual, you make the most yummy food, Angie!

I love bean paste... These look great!

Sounds delicious! There are so many options for fillings, but nutella sounds great.

Cooking-Gallery 16/8/09 16:57

I agree with KennyT, Dorayaki always reminds me of Doraemon :). I'll try this recipe for sure, perhaps with nutella, as I don't have any red bean paste. Thanks for the recipe!

My Little Space 16/8/09 17:19

Oh yeah, Angie, I agreed to all of them. It;s all about Doraemon:)...he he!

@KennyT, Cooking-Gallery, My Little Space: Oh, yep. I guess all Asians know about this snack through the Doraemon animated television series.
@girlichef: I ate them like a sandwich. I cut them for photographing....:-)
@The Little Teochew: Sure. I believe that traditional dorayaki uses honey.
@Andrea@WellnessNotes, doggybloggy: Thank you!

@Tuty: Here is the recipe to make Red Bean Paste, you can use the same way to do the mung bean paste.

How delicious looking. I've been thinking about making dorayaki actually. I thought they had to be done in the cast iron moulds.

Esther 10/8/10 21:16

I made these this morning and they were really good! Maybe a little too sweet, but I loved it otherwise. Would it be ok to reduce the sugar next time or would it change the texture? The only thing I had a problem with was that it took a quite a few minutes to cook each pancake. Thanks for this recipe. I love dorayaki too and it always reminds me of Doraemon too. haha

Angie's Recipes 11/8/10 11:43

Esther: I did with 50 grams of sugar too and they were no difference. I made each with just one spoon of the batter, so I found half a minute was actually okay.
