Mini Dorayakis (Pancakes with Red Bean Paste)

Dorayaki: An ever popular Japanese red azuki bean paste (anko) is sandwiched between  pancakes. The minis provide a touch of sweetness any time of day or night.

  • Ready-to-eat / Heat 'n Go microwavable mini pancakes
    (Or premade with your favorite recipe)
  • Azuki red bean paste (available at most Asian markets)

Heat the mini pancakes according to package directions. Cool. Sandwich Japanese red azuki bean paste between the pancakes. 

Note: Japanese pancakes used for dorayaki are a tad sweeter. But I found the American minis combined with the red azuki bean paste comes pretty close to an authentic dorayaki.
