- 128 grams eggs (about 3 eggs)
- 155 grams sugar
- 194 grams Plain flour
- 4 grams baking powder
- 4 grams baking soda
- 93 grams fresh milk
- 15 grams honey
- 8 grams butter (melted)
- In a small bowl, combine fresh milk, butter and honey and mix well. Set aside.
- In a large bowl, combine eggs and sugar and whisk well until the mixture becomes fluffy.
- Sift plain flour, baking powder and baking soda into egg mixture and mix all together. The batter should be slightly sticky now.
- Stir in fresh milk, butter and honey mixture into batter and mix well.
- Keep in the fridge to rest for 1 hour.
- Heat a non-stick frying pan over low heat. Dip a kitchen towel with some oil and coat the pan with oil and then remove the oil completely. This is the key for evenly golden brown dorayaki surface.
- Use a ladle to pour the batter from above the frying pan to create 8 cm diameter pancakes.
- When you see the surface of the batter starting to bubble, flip over the pancake to cook the other side for another 30 seconds. Then transfer to a plate. Continue making the pancakes for the rest of batter.
- You may serve the pancakes with some filling like red bean paste, kaya, custard/pastry cream or fruit jams.
