Cooking Japanese: My first Dorayaki try *\(^O^)/*

Hey guys (^.^)v

today I' ve just a small recipe for you ^.^
Some weeks ago I've managed to bake my first selfmade dorayaki!
Dorayaki basically are japanese pancakes filled with anko (red bean paste).
I love them so much and always buy them
when I'm in Düsseldorf ♥

this is what they look like when you buy them

I'm not really good at cooking, so I'm very happy this one worked x3
I used the recipe from nekobento.com but it's in german only...

 For about eight pieces you need:
175g Flour
150g Anko
80g Sugar
3 Eggs
1 Tbs. Honey
3 Tsp. Water
1/2 Tsp. Backing Powder 

Then you just mix everthing, except the Anko,
and let it prove for about half an hour
(the actual recipe says for 45 minutes, but I did it the first time
and my pancakes became so damn fluffy that it was
hard to eat the two of them with Anko inside x'D).

After this is done, you are ready to bake small pancakes ^.^
They should have a calibre of 7cm and have a round shape.
It should be around 16 pancakes in total,
so you can make 8 dorayaki out of it.

Let the pancakes cool down and then just spread Anko
on one pancake and put another one on top of it. Done (^.^)v

Not as good-looking as the ones you can buy,
but my family and I liked them ^.^
Plus: they are much cheaper to make it on your own
than to buy some x3

See you next time (^.^)v


  1. Fürs erste Mal sehen deine Dorayaki doch echt gut aus! Wenn ich überlege wie meine aussahen beim ersten Versuch ... 。(*^▽^*)ゞ

    Ich habe nämlich immer das Problem, das ich Pfannkuchen an sich immer sehr dünn mache und so kann man sich vorstellen was bei meinem ersten Versuch passiert ist, nicht war?

  2. Wow, deine Dorayaki sehen sehr lecker aus *-* Da musst du mir was von abgeben haha
    Jetzt hast du mich ermutigt auch welche zu machen xD

    Lieben Gruß,

  3. Oh die sehen lecker aus *__* haha, ich werd mich aufm J-Day wieder so vollfuttern :'D
    Am liebsten mag ich ja Takoyaki, aber dafür braucht man so ne extra Pfanne und hier in DE ist Oktopus auch ziemlich teuer ;___; deswegen gönn ich mir immer zwei Portionen aufm Japantag x'D

  4. Wonderful recipe, Will certainly be trying this out in the future!

    Thank you for this wonderful blog post, your doriyaki looked perfect :)

  5. This is so cool ;A: I think your's look really delicious ^^: I definitely want to try this out soon when I get the chance! Thanks for sharing<3
