Preparation of the gluten-free dorayaki recipe

  1. In a large container break the eggs and beat them with the sugar, with the help of a whisk, until the mixture is cleared and filled with bubbles of air.
  2. Add the honey and whisk until incorporated.
  3. Now add the water and yeast.
  4. Gradually add the flour and helping yourself with a whisk, forming a thick batter .
  5. Put a pan lightly greased with seed oil or butter on the heat.
  6. When the pan is hot, pour a generous spoonful of the mixture, and spread it out in a circular way.
  7. When you see bubbles form the dough on the surface, it’s time to turn it over. Cook over low heat for about 2 minutes per side or until golden brown.
  8. Turn the dough again and check that it is cooked. At this point you can put it on a plate, and continue making dorayaki until the dough is finished.
  9. Finally, spread your chosen jam or cream on one pancake, and close with another one, trapping the filling. They are ready to be eaten.

In short, as you have seen apart from the flour, the recipe is almost identical to the original one .


These Japanese sweets can be kept in the fridge for a couple of days in an airtight container.
