THE Dorayaki they are Japanese pancakes which are usually filled with anko, a typical jam from azuki beans.
They owe their name to the word “dora” which means “gong”, instrument to which these treats they resemble in their shape.
In this recipe we made them as simple as possible and stuffed with a luxurious hazelnut and chocolate cream. An interesting one variant is to replace the latter with a delicious chestnut jam.
For those wishing to try their hand at preparing another soft and stuffed recipe, we suggest consulting the many sweet and savory pancakes available.
Enjoy your meal!
How to prepare: Dorayaki
In a bowl, beat the eggs very well with the sugar until the mixture is puffy and fluffy. Add the well sifted honey, flour and yeast. Turn with a whisk.
Add the milk slowly, stirring constantly. You will need to get a thick batter that you will let rest at room temperature and covered with cling film for about 20 minutes. Heat a lightly oiled non-stick pan and pour a small amount of batter into the center. Cook over low heat until bubbles have formed on the surface. Turn and continue cooking, the time required will be less.
Stuff the dorayaki by placing a spoonful of hazelnut and chocolate cream in the center of half of the pancakes on the less cooked side. Close with the remaining ones making sure that the most cooked part remains at the top. Serve immediately.
