Dorayaki (Japanese Red Bean Pancake) ~ら焼き 铜锣烧~ is a popular sweet snack in Japan. It’s two pieces of fluffy honey pancake sandwiched with a spread of azuki paste (also known as anko). It’s quite quite easy to make Dorayaki at home to serve as a snack for the kids to enjoy especially during the school holidays. Not much effort is needed to make this delicious snack which can be done in a relatively short time. I used the leftovers of red bean paste for making mooncakes during the Mid-Autumn Festival. You don’t have to grease the pan with oil. Just drop in a ladle of batter on the pan and wait for a minute for bubbles to appear on the surface of the pancake. Then flip it over and cook for about 45 seconds to a minute. You may take a little longer time to cook if you want a thicker pancake. Then sandwich with a spread of red bean paste and serve the pancake immediately.
