Recipe: Matcha Pancakes

It’s pancake day, but of course we have to put our unique twist on things, with our yummy Matcha tea pancakes recipe!

Serves 2-4 (depending on how much you like pancakes!)

Matcha pancake frying in pan next to a stack of pancakes

150g self raising flour

1 tbsp Tea Enthusiasts Matcha powder

2 tbsp caster sugar

2 eggs

125 ml semi skimmed milk

2 tbsp butter, melted

Sunflower or olive oil, for frying

Sift flour and mix in the Matcha powder and sugar. Make a well in the centre. In another bowl, whisk the eggs and beat in the milk. Stir in the melted butter and pour into the well in the flour mixture. Whisk together until you have a smooth batter.

Place a frying pan over medium heat and add a little oil. When it’s hot, drop large spoonfuls of batter into the frying pan, leaving plenty of space between the pancakes. Cook for 1-2 minutes until golden underneath then flip the pancakes (be sure to video this bit for social media!) and cook on the other side.

Top tip: Keep pancakes warm in the oven on a low heat while you cook the rest.

Serve with syrup, fruit, ice cream, or use your imagination!
