Bake Along #14 - Dorayaki - Japanese Pancakes

This time round I'm so very late for Bake Along event, lucky I managed to squeeze time to make some for breakfast this morning phew...

Dorayaki has been one of requests by Abby, my girl, since the first time she ate one at NEX, luckily I could find one tested recipe
Over there one counter sells a nice quality dorayaki with various toppings
I particularly love chocolate, greentea, cream cheese and of course the original red bean paste fillings
Abby loves chocolate - only, so I made chocolate filling, only :)

Recipe is from Daily Delicious with chocolate custard filling
Here's the recipe for the filling:

20g cornflour
20g plain flour
70g sugar
2 egg yolks
300ml fresh milk
unsweetened cocoa powder mixed with a little hot water (quantity as desired, I used 2 heaped tbsp of cocoa)
1 tsp chocolate emulco

Mix egg yolks and sugar also milk, put in a pot on low heat, stir til mixed well
When already hot, add in cornflour and plain flour, stir til incorporated, followed by cocoa mixture and chocolate emulco, stir well and let it cooked - keep on stirring til smooth

Personally, I found this recipe did give a delicious dorayaki but it didn't really yield as soft and fluffy texture as I expected to be. Some experiments with adjustment in the ingredients should be done

Please hop on Lena, Joyce and Zoe's sites who host this event for their delicious treats too :)


  1. so nice to see your entry again! i think many of us are also interested in making these doraemon pancakes, thanks so much from sharing the recipe..must be quite a skill to make these round in uniform, huh?

  2. Your pancakes looks wonderful, I think I would go for chocolates too! Thank you for joining our Bake-Along, Alice! Wish you a great week ahead!

  3. thks Lena :)
    i used a medium size ladle so size wise its not really an issue
    what's more challenging is to make the surface evenly browned, due to high sugar ratio its easily get brown.. :)

    i wanted to make red beans paste filling but too lazy to make, perhaps next time :)
