I can hardly believe I went to all this trouble for a sweet, but such is my desire to have a Japanese-inspired summer!! (We had to cancel our 5 week holiday there due to my broken elbow.) This morning I made tsubuan, which is red bean paste with a lumpy texture. This evening I made pancakes to sandwich my tsubuan, and there we have it....Dorayaki!!!
We are all now thoroughly stuffed and completely satisfied.
