Kids are a big fan of the cat robot Doraemon. My son has been telling me to make Dora cakes. I used to laugh it off thinking it is just a cartoon. I thought that there may not be a cake in that name. I was so thrilled when I came across this recipe on cafegarima. The actual recipe is adapted from Just one cookbook.
This pancake can be made as a snack item for kids to school. It is traditionally supposed to be made with sweet bean paste. In Japanese 'Dora' means gong a musical instrument. The pancake is in the shape of a gong. ' Yaki' means cooked or grilled. So go ahead and surprise your kids!
