Daiso Maniac Saturday: #19 DIY Dorayaki...?

Daiso has new stuff!

It's the Burger Plate! According to the package, you can make mini rice burgers, dorayaki and even cookies with simple ingredients and a microwave. And so, I tried making some dorayaki. But before that, let's open the packaging and see how the plates look like...

They are 2 small metallic plates with an interlocking mechanism. For the dorayaki, you need to prepare some hotcake mix, an egg, and some milk.

Mix the ingredients together to form a batter. Then fill each plate with about 2 tablespoons of the batter. Tap the plates lightly against the table to release air bubbles.

Then pop them into the microwave and zap them for 1 minute and 30 seconds.. You'll get...

Pancakes?? With grooves..? Anyway, the amount of batter allowed me to make a few more pieces of "pancakes".. Then, I grab some Japanese red bean paste (koshi-an)..

And for half the batch of the "pancakes", I spread a dollop on each piece, the grooved side up.

I then placed the "clean pancakes" on top of each koshi-an covered piece, and kinda pressed the edges together...

Those looked nothing like dorayaki..... Not impressed, I baked them in the oven for another 5 minutes at 220 degrees celsius...

Still nothing like dorayaki, but they looked much better baked. However, to enjoy these "dorayaki"s, it's best to eat them right out of the oven when the edges are crispy and the pastry is still soft.

Keeping them in the refrigerator for breakfast might not be a good idea... Unless you want to have tough cookies to exercise your jaws in the morning.....

I guess you would have more success making dorayakis with the same ingredients on a frying pan instead. Check out Runnyrunny's recipe!

I bought these plates so that I could make rice burgers, but I can't figure out the instructions (I can't read Japanese, but usually I can work it out using diagrams and numbers). Can you help me work out how to make the rice burgers that they show on the packaging?

Hey, Kate. According to the insructions, to make rice burgers, you'll need

For Rice Buns:
- Cooked rice 100g
- shoyu (light soya sauce) 1/2 teaspoon
- katakuriko (or you can use corn starch) 1 teaspoon

For the meat patty:
- minced meat (I'd think it's beef, but i think you can use whatever meat you'll like?) 70g
- salt & pepper to taste
- yakiniku sauce (or any sauce that you like) 2 teaspoons

For the sunny-side up:
- 1 egg

To make the rice buns:
Mix all the ingredients well and split the mixture into 2. Place and spread evenly (or flatten) each portion into a plate and place both plates into the microwave and zap them for 1 min 30 seconds (I assume this is for a 500/600 Watt microwave?). If the rice buns are still not ready, return to the microwave at 1 min intervals. When the rice buns are done, remove them from the plates.

To make the meat patty:
Mix the meat, salt and pepper. Then place and flatten the mixture onto one of the plates. Drizzle the sauce on top of the meat. Cover and lock the other plate in place, then microwave it for about 2 minutes (or until the meat is done). When the meat is done, remove it from the plates.

To make the sunny-side up:
Crack the egg and place it in one of the plates. Carefully poke the yolk at 5 different positions with a toothpick. Cover and lock the other plate in place. Then follow this cooking procedure:
Microwave it for 30 seconds -> Let it rest in the microwave (without heating) for 1 minute (to steam) -> Microwave again for 20 seconds
Note: The yolk will easily expand and pop once heated in the microwave, so make sure the plates are locked properly.

Once you have all the components done, you can arrange your rice burger! =) Happy cooking!
