Green Tea Pancakes

I make A LOT of pancakes. I’m always looking for a way to change it up and surprise the kids – so one morning I added some matcha powder (powdered green tea) to the batter. The kids LOVED it! Topped with a nice strawberry compote, you have a unique, colorful, delicious breakfast.

2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 Tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons matcha (powdered green tea)
2 eggs
1-1/2 cups milk
1 Tablespoon melted butter

Strawberry compote (recipe, here)

Matcha can be found in the tea section of Japanese markets. Careful – that powder is potent and will get EVERYWHERE if you are not careful.

In a large bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, sugar and matcha.

Add the eggs, milk and butter until just combined.

Heat your skillet with a little butter and start making PERFECT pancakes.

Top with some Strawberry Compote and serve!

    I just made matcha pancakes and posted about it today too! What a coincidence. Yours look a lot greener than mine. I think I need to find a new matcha powder. My green tends to fade a lot during cooking/baking.

    I made these pancakes a couple weeks ago and loved them! I will definitely be using matcha powder much more in the future; this was my first time cooking with it.

    I blogged about these today and I linked back to your blog on mine. Please let me know if that’s a problem, and I can take it down. Thanks again; I love your blog!

    These came out so fluffy! Couldn’t try it with strawberries because my son is allergic, but seemed to go well with blueberry-lime sauce. Trying to be heathier today, I had them with yogurt and maple syrup…very good!

    There is nothing like a cup of Green Tea in the morning. I always feel more alert after drinking Green Tea.
