For the sweet red bean filling/ Anko:
- 1 1/2 cup azuki beans/ red beans
- 2 cup sugar
- 1 tsp. salt
Put lots of water in a deep pot. Soak red beans in the water overnight. Heat the beans on high heat and bring to a boil. Turn down the heat to medium and simmer beans for about 10 minutes. Drain the beans. Put in a blender and mash it a lil bit there. Bring back the beans in the pot again and add about four cups of water, bring to a boil. Turn down the heat to low and simmer the beans for about one hour, or until softened. You can use medium to high heat but need to continuosly stir. Drain the liquid from the pot. Add sugar and salt, Stir and simmer until thickened. Stop the heat and cool the anko.
- 100 g flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 50 g sugar
- 1 tbsp honey
- 2 eggs
- 80 ml water
Whisk eggs and sugar until they start to fluff a little bit. Then add in the honey and stir well. Sift in flour and baking powder into the bowl and carefully mix, try avoid any lumps from forming. Add in water. ( whisk gunakan pemukul telur is much better)
On a slightly heated non-stick pan, pour in 1 1/2 tbsp of the pancake mix. Bigger dorayaki will need more than 1 tbsp of mixture. NOTE that the skin of these pancake browns easily because of the honey, so no need to use too much heat. Turn over the dorayaki once it is brown and give the other side of the dorayaki to brown just a little. Spread the azuki filling and sandwich them together to form a Dorayaki.
i kinda like this pancake recipe of dorayaki very much, and whenever i feel like eating pancake here it is!!!
