Turn each half over and cook the other side for the same amount of time. Remove from the pan. Make the remaining pancakes in the same manner.

To make one sandwich, place 1/4 of the mashed sweetened red bean paste (anko) on one pancake and spread. Cover with the second pancake. Make the remaining sandwiches in the same manner.
