Dorami's Melon Bun | Doraemon (ドラえもん) 🔔

Doraemon | ドラえもん (1969): A Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Fujiko F. Fujio. The manga was first serialized in December 1969, with its 1,345 individual chapters compiled into 45 tankōbon volumes, published by Shogakukan from 1970 to 1996. The story revolves around an earless robotic cat named Doraemon, who travels back in time from the 22nd century to aid a boy named Nobita Nobi. Doraemon was sent by Sewashi Nobi, Nobita's future grandson, so that his descendants can get a better life. At the present, Nobita is a man who always fails in class, and whose company goes bankrupt, causing his family and sons to face financial difficulties. Most stories of Doraemon revolve the young Nobita Nobi, who receives poor grades and is frequently bullied by his two classmates, Takeshi Goda (nicknamed "Gian") and Suneo Honekawa (Gian's sidekick). Doraemon has a four-dimensional pouch in which he stores unexpected gadgets he uses to aid Nobita. Doraemon's gadgets help Nobita overcome the troubles, and they end up developing a relationship with each other.

"Maybe you don't have your ears, but your ribbon makes you even more cuter." - Doraemon

Dorami is the younger sister of Droaemon and a supporting character. She lovesssss Melon Bread and is afraid of cockroaches 😂 She is also shown to be a more advanced robot than Doraemon (Dorami is able to produce 10,000 horse power, in comparison to Doraemon's 129.3). Different from her malfunctioned brother, she's the smartest student during her school time, and has better skills in using gadgets. She also has her own spin-off manga. and guess what she actually had a boyfriend named Dora the Kid, one of the members of The Doraemons. Aww! Her signature color is cobalt yellow or sometimes, she becomes red. Dorami is usually on good terms with her brother, Doraemon who in particular likes her bow tie. She is sometimes critical of Doraemon's methods to help Nobita, though her attempts usually backfire. She also argues with him when he cannot leave to attend a mechanical check-up in the future (as he is concerned of Nobita), and often she ends up dragging him if Nobita is not capable of fixing the issue.

You may find melon bread in one of the Doraemon episodes called "The Best Melon Bread in the World". It's Dorami's birthday and Doraemon plans to buy melon bread from the famous melon bread shop as a birthday gift. As the sale of melon bread is only limited to four hundred, split evenly in four rounds, Doraemon plans to head down to the shop early after decorating the room, but when he reaches there the queue is already long. Doraemon ends up missing the first three rounds to help others in need; and has to rejoin the queue every time. Such a sweetheart Doraemon... So for today's recipe, I'm going to make Melon Bread to help Doraemon!


  • 250g bread flour/all purpose flour

  • 30g brown sugar

  • A pinch of salt

  • 50g unsalted butter

  • 1 egg

  • 40g milk

  • 70g cold water

  • 6g instant dry yeast


  • 34g unsalted butter (softened)

  • 40g brown sugar

  • 1 egg

  • 114 cake flour/all purpose flour

  • Plastic wrap


  1. Place bread flour or all-purpose flour into a mixing bowl. Then add in salt and sugar separately from the yeast. This is to prevent inconsistency on the dough. Mix the salt and sugar with the flour then mix the yeast with the flour.

2. Add in the flour mixture in a bread mixture and pour in beaten egg, milk and cold water. Let the mixer run for 20 minutes and add in butter. The mixer will knead the dough until it form a ball shape. You can also manually use your hand to knead the dough. Make sure to dough for at least 20 - 25 minutes.

3. After kneading, place the dough on a big bowl and cover the bowl with a plastic wrap or kitchen towel. Let it rest for 1 hour 20 minutes or until double in size.

4. Let's make the cookie dough while waiting for the main dough to be double in size. In a bowl, add in softened butter and sugar. Mix until incorporated. Then pour in beaten egg inside. Mix everything until combined.

5. Sift flour on the batter.

6. Stir everything until it form a small ball.

7. Spread a plastic wrap and place the cookie dough on top of it. Cover the cookie dough with the plastic wrap and flatten it. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

8. Yay! Our main dough is now double in size thanks to the yeast! Punch the dough and flatten it to let all the air out.

9. Then, divide the dough into 12 pieces. Roll each dough into a ball shape. Cover with a plastics wrap to prevent the dough from drying.

10. Take out the cookie dough from the fridge and cut into 12 portions.

11. Roll the cookie dough into a ball and flatten it using your palm. Then, gently place the flatten cookie dough on top of the bread dough. Hold the Melon bun on your palm and make a checkboard pattern on top with the scraper. You can also dip the top of the cookie dough with sugar. I skip that step in this recipe.

12. Line up the Melon bun on the baking sheet covered with parchment paper and let it rest for 30 minutes. At this point you can heat up your oven at 190°C (374 °F). After 30 minutes of the second rise, the Melon ban are almost doubled in volume. Bake the Melon bun for 12 - 15 minutes.

13. When each Melonpan gets slightly brown on top, remove the baking sheet from the oven. Cool them down on a cooling rack and they are ready to serve!

Next, somebody give me the "Dokodemo door" (Anywhere Door) so I can travel through time to find Doraemon and give him all this Melon Bun!
