Have you ever made matcha dorayaki?
Dorayaki are Japanese pancake sandwiches with sweet fillings. Traditionally the fillings are made with red azuki beans but you will also find them filled with custard, black sesame, cinnamon paste and different flavoured creams.
Dorayaki traditionally look like 2 gongs or cymbals joined together (as below) but we have chosen to make our dorayaki more fat with extra filling.
Serves: 8 – 10
Preparation time: 5 mins + 20 mins resting
Cooking time: 4 mins a batch
- 3 eggs
- 150gm Japanese white sugar
- 5gm matcha powder
- 175ml water
- Tbsp corn syrup or glucose
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 180gm plain flour (cake flour is best)
- Oil for cooking
- Some pre-prepared chunky style red bean paste
1. Whisk eggs and sugar till glossy
2. Sift the flour and matcha powder three times
3. Combine the water, baking powder and corn syrup
4. Slowly add the sifted flour into the egg mix while whisking, followed by the liquids
5. Mix well and set aside for approx 20 mins, after 20 mins the consistency may need adjusting with a little water
6. Cook Dorayaki in a pan over medium heat (180C) till bubbles appear and are nicely browned all over
7. Served sandwiched together with prepared red bean or your favourite fillings
- Keep the pan greased between batches
- Use a heavy based cast iron pan
- Check the heat isn’t too high
- Use the best quality matcha you can afford as cheap matcha has no flavour
Enjoy with freshly brewed tea or coffee
I think the order of your directions got a little bit out of order.
Thanks for the pickup, all fixed now.
