Hello everyone 
My kids are a big fan of doremon cartoon. They often see doremon eating his favorite Dora cakes and they too start drooling over it. I never thought it would be so easy to prepare at home too. Once I came across a post by our CAL friend Garima Sarolia Narera, of Dora cakes. From that day I was thinking of trying it with some healthy twist. So here is mine whole wheat flour Dora cakes. Soon will come up with its eggless version too, but till then enjoy these beauties. My kids got surprised and over excited to see these chocolate oozing soft and fluffy DORAYAKIS .Special thanks to Garima for inspiration. 
Step wise recipe is given below, hope you all will definitely like and try it.


Yield: 8 pan cakes( 4 Dora cakes)
Time: 30 mins


2 eggs ( at room temperature)
1 cup + 1 tbsp whole wheat flour 
1/2 cup powdered sugar 
3/4 cup milk (at room temperature)
1 tbsp honey 
1/2 tsp vanilla essence 
1 tsp baking soda
Little oil to drizzle 
Nutella or jam for filling 


Mix whole wheat flour and baking powder well and keep for later use.

Whisk eggs, sugar and honey together till little frothy . It will take 4-5 mins if you are whisking with hands. So give it time, as more lighter your egg mixture will give you more soft and fluffy pancakes.

Now add milk and vanilla essence in it and mix well. Now add flour to it in batches and mix well by folding, to a lump less smooth batter.

Now heat a nonstick tawa or pan on medium low flame, drizzle some oil on it and wipe excess oil with paper towel. Pour a ladle full of batter on it and let it cook from one side. It will take nearly 1 1/2 - 2 mins.Once you see lots of bubble on it and sides become dry then flip and cook for another one min and done.

 In the same manner, make all the pancakes. 

Be careful while cooking, to get nice brown cakes ,always use medium to low flame and flip pancake immediately once it's sides are getting dry and having lots of bubbles on top. Otherwise you will get blackish pancakes with burnt flavour. And always use same amount of batter for each pancake to get even size Dora cakes.
Now take one pancake with nice brown side down, keep 1 tbsp Nutella or jam in middle and cover it with another pancake with its brown side up. Lightly press it with palm and pinch its edges to seal.

Your soft fluffy and yummy Dora cakes are ready to serve.

For eggless version you can substitute 2 eggs by 1 fully ripe medium size banana. Whisk banana till fluffy then follow the same procedure as above.

Make these easy fancy cakes for your kids and see their glittering eyes with happiness. Hope you all will definitely try this simple delight and pour your precious comments and suggestions here, they meant a lot.

Happy cooking....
