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.
