I love Dorayaki because I love red bean paste. Dorayaki is one of the most popular Japanese confectioneries. It is Anko (sweet red bean paste) sandwiched between sweet pancakes. The other reason why I love Dorayaki is because when I was a kid, I love “Doraemon” and in almost every episode has a scenes of him eating Dorayaki! So whenever I think of Dorayaki, I think of Doraemon!
