One of the most famous Japanese sweets is ‘Dorayaki’, thanks to the Manga and adapted TV Anime series ‘Doraemon’. ‘Dorayaki’ is two small pancake-like sponge wrapped a filling of sweet Azuki red bean paste. My children love it but my husband doesn’t eat it, because he doesn’t like Azuki paste. I tried to make ‘Dorayaki’ more enjoyable for the people like my husband, by adding Peanut Butter to it.


6 Dorayaki


1 cup Self-Raising Flour
2 Eggs
1/2 cup Sugar
1/2 cup Water
‘Tsubu-an’ (Sweet Azuki Paste)
Crunchy Peanut Butter

  1. Make thin 10cm pancakes with least possible Oil. Non stick pan is recommended as you need no Oil.
  2. This pancake recipe is specially for ‘Dorayaki’. Because of the larger amount of sugar, it would be easy to burn quickly. Please cook on low heat and try to make one side brown. The other side doesn’t require to be browned.
  3. Sandwich 1 tablespoons of Tsubu-an and 1 tablespoons of Crunchy Peanut Butter with two pancakes.
