Dorayaki (Japanese Red Bean Pancake)
OCTOBER 28, 2011
I’m so excited to share this traditional Japanese dessert recipe today. If you are a regular reader of Just One Cookbook, you probably know that I rarely make dessert. I know a lot of readers come here to look for Japanese dessert recipes but are probably disappointed at what little dessert recipes I have. I am aware of that and I hope to increase my desert collections on Just One Cookbook. In fact, I have one more dessert recipe coming up next week as well. So I’m working on it…slowly… Today I’m guest posting at my fellow foodie friend Mai’s blog, A Cup of Mai. Mai cooks delicious food and takes gorgeous pictures, and she has a good fashion and artistic talent which I am completely lack of. I love how Mai updated her master bedroom and how she cooks delicious spare ribs and bakes chocolate macarons with ganache filling! You will see what I mean when you visit her blog – so click Here to check out my guest post and spend some time on her blog with a cup of coffee or tea!
Today’s dessert Dorayaki is best described as a dessert sandwich with red bean filling between two slices of pancake. If you are familiar with Japanese cartoon from the 70’s, you probably know this dessert from the anime character Doraemon who is crazy about Dorayaki. I grew up eating this dessert in Japan and packaged Dorayaki is usually sold in Asian or Japanese grocery stores in the US. However, it is really easy to make at home and much more delicious if you make it from scratch. Hope you give this simple recipe a try. Have a great weekend!
