Pancake Day (どら焼き Dara yaki)

Today is Pancake Tuesday. Is everyone making pancakes?

There is no Pancake day in Japan, but I'm doing it anyway:) I made a type of Japanese pancake called "どら焼き (Dora yaki)". They are like pancake sandwiches which have Annko (sweet azuki bean paste). The pancakes are normally thick and soft sponge-like texture. The traditional Dorayaki has Annko in it, but recently a number of varieties can be found... with whipped cream, cream cheese, custard... almost anything...

Making Dorayaki at home is simple. Just make American style thick pancake with a bit of honey in it, and sandwich anything you like! Be creative, make it modern!


Flour 80g
Rice flour 20g
Baking powder 1 tsp
Egg 1
Sugar 30g
Milk 100ml
Honey 1 tbsp
Annko (As much as you like)

1. Mix flour, rice flour, sugar and baking powder well in a bowl.
2. Add eggs, milk and honey into 1 and mix well.
3. Heat up the pan and spray oil.
4. Make pancakes one at a time. Cook both side.
5. Rest the cooked pancakes for 10 minutes. Sandwich Annko.
