Dorayaki Shop DOU Announces New Chestnut Flavoured Dorayaki for Autumn

25.August.2018 | FOOD

DOU is a shop specializing in ‘raw’ dorayaki, and they’ve just announced a new chestnut flavour for the fall season which will be available from September 1, 2018.


DOU is the first Japanese confectionery establishment to be set up by BAKE Inc.. They took the skills and experience gathered as a brand selling western confections and applied them to making Japanese confections which resulted in DOU opening in Ikebukuro in May 2017 offering dorayaki in a new form.

The new chestnut flavour is available this fall only. The raw mixture is laced with marron cream and has a chewy texture. It’s topped with fresh cream and chopped chestnuts. Their dorayaki mixture is made using a special method that gives it a texture similar to a western sponge cake. Additionally, instead of using red bean paste like in regular dorayaki, it’s filled with a marron cream that’s made with generous amounts of chestnut paste to give it an even richer chestnut flavour.

Regular items on DOU’s menu include their plain dorayaki which come with a light, smooth and melt-in-the-mouth fresh cream that’s made from milk sourced in Hokkaido. Their chewy and pure white ‘Hakuchou Mochi’ made in Hokkaido are filled with miyabi beans, the highest quality red beans on the market.

One of their most popular products are the matcha flavoured dorayaki for which the dough and fresh cream are laced with matcha.


You’ll get addicted to the skillfully made dorayaki at DOU. Don’t miss out on their limited edition autumn flavour.
