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.

ingredients:
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!
