Dorayaki is a pancake with red bean(azuki) filling and commonly associated with Doraemon.ha
Its one of my favourite snack. Like it so much that i even brought it along in my delivery bag when i was delivering my gal.Ha!
Have been buying them from Japanese supermarts all along,never thought of making them myself until i saw Alan making them and providing recipe for it as well.Reading through the recipe,i thought i might just give it a try,it looks really simple to make.True enough,its easy peasy,now i can have dorayakis anytime i crave for them!
