Red Bean and Nutella Dorayaki

IMG_7822Greetings from little Ms. Late Poster. My sister always puts her posts up on time and I’m just….late. Haha.

Anyways lateness aside it’s almost the semester break for me. Wooo! I only need one more assignment to submit and it’s making a website relating any activity to maths, science and technology. Of course I picked baking. Mwahahaha. I just need to be convincing and I’m home free! There are stacks of cookbooks waiting to be read and drawings in my head waiting to be drawn. I need to finish this assignment pronto. But in classic procrastinating fashion I’m bringing you a super easy thing to make first.

Dorayaki. It’s Japanese red bean pancake. I learnt about it from Ochikeron on Youtube. Basically it’s a little pancake sandwich. Make pancakes, put something in the middle and close. Boom there you go. Here are pictures to motivate you.

Cover in cling wrap. To keep the moisture in. I realised I skipped a step because I forgot to let it rest in the fridge. Ooops. Turned out fine though..I think. 30 minutes is too long to wait for pancakes when you’re a hungry assignment crammer like me. Haha. The kitchen felt like a fridge anyways soooo…

The second fun part next to eating. Filling!
You can choose to put red bean or nutella by itself. But they taste great together in my opinion.

I made some red bean paste beforehand.

If you overfill it like I did, you won’t be able to close it well like one of these guys. Too bad. I guess you’ll just have to eat another, and another…and another. Just to check if they all taste great.

Red Bean and Nutella Dorayaki from Ochikeron

2 eggs
1/2 cup cake flour ( or substitute with 1/2 cup [minus 1 tbsp] plain flour + 1 tbsp cornflour)
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tbsp. honey
2 tsp. water
cooking oil
red bean paste
nutella

– Beat eggs in a bowl. Add sugar and mix well. Add honey and mix well.
– Sift cake flour and baking soda together. Add to the batter and mix until incorporated. Don’t overmix.
– Then add water and mix until smooth. Do not overmix.
– Cover with a plastic wrap and let it rest in the fridge for 30 minutes.
– Heat cooking oil in a pan on low, pour 2 tbsp. of the batter onto the pan, and cook until bubbles appear on the surface. Flip with a spatula, and cook until browned on the other side.
– While it’s hot, put it in a closed container (or cover with a plastic wrap) to keep it moist, then continue making the next pancake.
– Making a sandwich, place about a teaspoon each of nutella and red bean paste.
– Press the edges to close.

Enjoy!
