Easy Japanese Dorayaki Recipe

Prep Time
Cook Time
Dorayaki is one of the most popular Japanese confectioneries. It is Anko (sweet red bean paste) sandwiched between sweet pancakes. It is a Japanese sweet beloved by the old and young. It may be perfect for people who have never had any traditional Japanese sweets because it doesn’t have any unusual ingredients. Dorayaki is also called Mikasa, from Mt. Mikasa in Nara which is next to Osaka.

Cooking Recipe


1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
2 eggs
1/2 cup sugar
1 Tbsp honey
3/4 cup milk
Anko (sweet red bean paste)


Mix flour and baking soda in a bowl.
In another bowl, whisk eggs, sugar, and honey together. Add milk and mix well.
Stir dry ingredients into egg mixture, and whisk until batter becomes smooth.
Heat non-stick frying pan with a small amount of oil and wipe excess oil well. At medium low heat, drop 1/8 of a cup of batter onto the pan, like a pancake. Cook about 2 minutes until the surface of the pancake has a lot of bubbles and the edges become dry. Flip over and cook 1 more minute.
Transfer to a plate and cover with a wet paper towel.
Take one cake and place a heaping tablespoon of Anko and cover with another cake. Wrap it with plastic and press with hands. Pinch to seal the edges of the pancakes together.
