Japanase Dorayaki(also known as Mikasa) is one of Japan's popular classic confectioneries. It is red bean paste sandwiched between two pancakes.
Oh that's nothing special! You say. Oh but it is! Sometimes the simpliest things in life are the most overlooked.
Dorakayi can also be made with other paste. One of our house favorites is with red bean and chestnuts paste. Another is to make it with matcha and coarse red bean paste. Your tastebuds is your imagination. Add chocolate to it or peanut butter.
Here's a simple recipe to making your own dorayaki.
No seriously! it really is that simple but I will humor you with a recipe because we all have our own way of making pancakes. And me, being me, I have a habit of tweeking just about any recipe I come across. Of course, you want to try the original recipe before you go around exprimenting with it. Because sometimes, THAT recipe is just perfect for your tastebuds.
