You'll find the recipes for:

  • yaki onigiri, slightly fried onigiri
  • miso soup
  • dorayaki, Doreamon's favourites

yaki onigiri



For the rice:

  • 2 glasses of raw rice
  • 1 piece of butter 

For the miso cream:

  • 1 table spoon of miso
  • ½ table spoon of mirin
  • ½ table spoon of sake
  • ½ table spoon of sugar
  • 1 table spoon of water (adapt to fix the texture of the cream)


  • Cook the rice according to your rice cooker instructions.
  • Prepare the miso cream by mixing the ingredients above.
  • Make 4 little balls of rice: you can form the onigiri with your hands or with a tin.
  • Before serving, pour the miso cream over the onigiri and fry them with some butter.
  • For simple onigiri, add some furikake (a mix of sesame seeds and seaweeds).


Miso soup



  • Dried shiitake mushrooms
  • 5 cm of kombu seaweed
  • A handful of katsuoboshi flakes (dried bonito) 
  • 2 table spoons of white or red miso paste

The ingredients are easy to find in Japanese grocery stores.


  • In a saucepan, plunge the mushrooms, the seaweed, and the dried bonito flakes 1.5L of water.
  • Let it rest for 1 hour.
  • Boil for 5 minutes.
  • Filter if you only want to keep the stock. 
  • You can also add vegetables (onions, leeks, mushrooms, carrots). 
  • Now you just have to add the miso paste to the stock and enjoy your miso soup!





  • 2 eggs
  • 120g flour
  • 40g sugar
  • 1 short tea spoon of baking powder + 30ml water
  • 1 table spoon of agave syrup
  • A pinch of salt
  • A box of adzuki beans


  • Blend the eggs with the sugar, agave syrup, and a pinch of salt until it blanches.
  • Dilute the baking powder in the water and add it to the previous blend.
  • Sift and add the flour, and blend.
  • Heat a pan over medium heat with some oil and add a ladder of dough.
  • When bubbles appear on the top, turn the pancake over.
  • Add some mashed adzuki beans between two warm pancakes and press the edges to join them.

Now you can enjoy your dorayaki: yummy!
