Dorayaki どら焼き

Hey everyone. How are you guys doing? Well, I've been busy with school and it's been crazy. Everyone knows how school is. So, anyway, I've been posting a lot of Japanese recipes lately. It's kind of strange, but still, it's Asian. Anyways, I decided to make dorayaki, because I love red bean paste and cake. It's my absolute bean paste ever. I do like lotus seed paste the best, but it isn't a bean paste. Anyways, red beans are awesome. So, compared to the store bought ones, mines taste a bit different and the texture is different. They're both still quite delicious. Here's a recipe to the dorayaki I made. You can adjust it to suit your tastes. Some of you guys might say it's a bit too sweet, but I like things really sweet. So, here's the recipe. Enjoy.


  • 1 cup flour
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup water 
  • 1/2  tsp baking powder
  • red bean paste
  1. In a bowl, mix the eggs and the sugar together. 
  2. Mix in the honey. 
  3. Then, add the flour and baking powder and mix. Then, slowly add in the water. The batter might be a little thick. You can add a little bit more water if you need to.
  4. In a non stick pan/skillet, pour about 1/4 cup of the mixture (or a little less) onto the pan over medium heat, and let it cook until it starts to bubble. Then, flip the cake until it's cooked. Take it off the pan, and cook the rest of the batter this way. 
  5. To make the dorayaki, you will need two cakes to make one dorayaki. Take one cake, spread red bean paste over it, and then cover it with another piece of cake. There you go. Enjoy. :)
