Dorayaki (Weekend 10: Japan)

Around the World in 30 Weekends!! The segment I wish to complete by cooking a dish from 30 different countries on 30 weekends.

Weekend 10: Japan
Dish : Dorayaki (Japanese Pancakes)

Today is Father's Day and for a special breakfast...We tried Japanese pancakes called 'Dorayaki' (shown in the Doraemon cartoon).

 These have a uniform brown appearance, characteristic texture and are eaten as a sandwich of 2 pancakes with a 'Anko :red bean paste' sweet filling. 

I obtained the Recipe from:

These were one of the best pancakes I ever had!!

We just sandwiched them with good old Nutella and Strawberry jam

Watermelon Dessert Pizza

It's summer and is sizzling hot in here! This kind of weather calls for cool and light desserts which won't leave you feeling heavy after eating them! Fruits, especially watery fruits like watermelon and berries are perfect for these kind of desserts. And best of all.....NO COOKING!!
Just cut and assemble and chill...fabulous looking dessert is done!

Here is how to make this Watermelon Dessert pizza:

Cut out a circular slice from central portion of a watermelon. 

Top with cut up berries/ fruits, chocolate chips and drizzle some frosting/ melted chocolate.

 Chill in refrigerator for 15 mins.Cut up like pizza wedge and enjoy!!
