Dorayaki Ice Cream Sandwiches

As prepared by The Food in my Beard,

I have to admit, I had never heard of dorayaki until a few weeks ago.


The idea to make some was suggested to me, and it was love at first Google search. Dorayaki is a Japanese confection, basically а pancake wrapped around a filling. I quickly became obsessed with these little guys, learning about the many varieties and even hunting some down near my apartment.

But you know I had to put my own twist on them!

With the constant heat in the city, I have ice cream on my mind all the time, so it was a no-brainer to replace the red bean paste filling with a creamy refreshing red bean ice cream. Ice cream sandwiched between 2 pancakes?!? Why isn’t this more popular?

Japanese sweet red bean paste is easy to make, but I didn’t have time to do all the soaking and boiling of the dried beans. I decided to head out to the Asian market and pick up some packages. If you have never had it, it’s basically a sweet version of refried beans that is insanely popular in Asian desserts. I made a simple ice cream base, then added the bean paste and put it in my ice cream maker.

Later on, it’s time to make the pancake batter. This is after whisking together eggs and sugar for about 5 minutes. As you can see, it is a silky consistency. As you can also see, I made a bit of a mess.

Then just fry ‘em up like normal pancakes.

After they cool, make the sandwiches. Traditionally, they are closed on the sides, but feel free to overstuff them if you like.

I kinda like the traditional shape though.

These were very tasty and totally different than any dessert I have had in a while! I wasn’t sure how the bean paste ice cream would turn out, but in the end it was creamy with a cool flavor that was distinctly bean, yet still very appetizing for a dessert. I would make these again in a second, and I think they would be a huge hit at a party.
