Dorayaki pancakes

These are a little like 'Scotch pancakes' but sandwiched together with chocolate paste or fruit and cream.


  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tbsp caster sugar
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla paste
  • 70 g plain or cake flour sifted
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • Filling: cream and fruit or Nutella or sweet bean Azuki


  • Whisk eggs, sugar, honey, vanilla in a large bowl.
  • Add in the flour and baking powder until well combined but don't overmix, it makes the pancakes tough.
  • Leave the bowl in a cool place for 15 minutes. Don't stir the batter, you want the bubbles.
  • Preheat a flat frying pan or crepière, rub a little butter over the pan. Drop a spoonful directly downwards onto the pan, it should form a circle. Cook until golden brown then flip over. Repeat until the mixture is used up.
  • Once cooked, leave the Dorayaki on a cooling rack.
  • Press together in a sandwich (or sando as the Japanese call them) using your filling of choice.
