Dorayaki with Matcha Custard Cream Part2 – Matcha Custard Cream

So I finalised the perfect recipe for making soft and moist Dorayaki Japanese Pancake. I am so proud of the taste and the texture with silky finish. We traditionally have it by sandwiching some Sweet Bean Paste such as Azuki ‘Tsubu-An‘ or White Bean ‘Shiro-An‘ Paste between two pieces. It is very recent that people started to put all sorts of cream and fruit instead. For me anything can be OK as long as the Pancake is tasty. I like trying any new flavour combination.

This time I went to a fusion of Japanese and the Western for my perfect Dorayaki. It was Matcha Custard Cream. I love Custard and this time I added a hint of Japanese ‘Matcha‘ Green Tea to this Western flavour. It is a versatile tasty cream to have with any sweet & dessert and it goes so well with Dorayaki’s soft and moist texture as well. How can you resist it by seeing the Matcha Custard Cream is oozing out from the Dorayaki?!

Matcha Custard Cream



  • 1 Egg Yolk
  • 60g of Granulated Sugar
  • 100ml of Milk
  • 6g of Corn Starch
  • 6g of Plain Flour
  • 1 Tsp of ‘Matcha‘ Green Tea Powder
  • 5g of Unsalted Butter
  • 1 Tsp of Vanilla Extract


Mix Yolk and Sugar well in a glass bowl with a whisk until the mixture becomes airy and whitish colour. Add in Plain flour, Corn Flour and Matcha powder. Combine well

Heat Milk in a cooking pan at medium heat. Remove the pan from the heat before it starts boiling. Add the hot milk into the mixture little by little and mix it well

Return the mixture into the pan which you used for warming milk. Start heating it at medium-high heat. Keep starring with a whisk until it starts getting thickened

When the mixture starts becoming thicker remove the pan off the hob and add in Butter. Transfer the custard onto a wide vat or a clean bowl. Place cling film on the surface and leave it in room temperature until it cools down

When the mixture becomes cool add in Vanilla Extract and mix well


If you use this cream for Dorayaki put plenty of Matcha Custard Cream on whitish side (with many holes) of Dorayaki Pancake and cover it with another piece.  😀
