Dorayaki: gluten-free pancakes with anko


Making gluten-free pancakes can be a challenge because gluten is what keeps those pancakes together so nicely. This is the simplest and most effective recipe for gluten-free pancakes, also called dorayaki in Japan. The anko is a typical Japanese sweet and you can use it instead of regular sugar syrup.

This is how you make it

  1. Boil the aduki beans in 1 to 2 hours. How quickly they cook depends on how old the beans are and whether you soak them in advance.
  2. Put the ingredients for the pancakes in a bowl and mix with a whisk or mixer to a smooth batter.
  3. Put a little coconut oil in a frying pan and fry the pancakes one by one. We used an 8 cm round mold to thicken the pancakes.
  4. Put the ingredients for the anko in the blender and grind until smooth.
  5. Spread a layer of anko between two pancakes.


  • Do you want a little more sweetness? Then drizzle some maple syrup over your pancakes.
