Dorayaki (どら焼き)

Ingredients & Cooking Directions for Dorayaki - どら焼き

Estimated Servings: 4

Step 1: Make the Batter

4 eggs
2/3 cup sugar
2 tablespoons honey
1 cup cake flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 tablespoons water

Add the flour and baking powder into a large bowl and mix them up. In a separate bowl, add in the eggs, honey and sugar and whisk them until well combined. Pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and blend them together. Then add water to the batter and mix it up until smooth. Cover the batter with plastic wrap and allow it to rest in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes before cooking.

Step 2: Cook the Dorayaki

½ teaspoon vegetable oil

Pour oil on a paper towel and wipe it on a non-stick pan. The pan should be slightly oiled but the oil should not be visible. Then place the pan on a stove and turn it on medium heat. With a small ladle, pour the batter on the center of the pan creating a circle. When you see the surface of the batter start to bubble, flip it over and cook it on the other side until golden brown. Transfer the cooked dorayaki to a plate and repeat this process until you cook all of the batter.

Step 3: Slice the Fruit

1 banana
½ cup strawberries

Peel the banana and slice them into ½ inch slices. Then remove the tops from the strawberries and cut them up making sure that they are all the same size. Then set all of the fruits aside.

Step 4: Put it Together

4 tablespoons Nutella

Spread the Nutella on one dorayaki and place one banana slice in the middle. Then place the strawberry slice all around the banana slice. Finally place a dorayaki on top like a sandwich.
