Dorayaki

A type of Japanese confection consisting of sweet red bean paste sandwiched between two small sweet pancakes.

Dorayaki have a shape similar to Japanese gongs called “dora”, for which they are likely named after.  In the Kansai region, in south-central Japan, the confectionary is called “mikasa” .

Dorayaki are the favorite food of the classic Japanese cartoon character, Doraemon, who tends to get in many forms of trouble due to his love for dorayaki.
