These matcha pancakes are a fun and inventive way of adding a little bit of Matcha magic to your diet. Deliciously quick and easy to make. A show stopper at any breakfast or brunch.
3/4 cup milk
1 tablespoon vegetable oil (plus more for the frying pan)
1 very ripe banana mashed with a fork
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup flour
1 tablespoon matcha powder
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
In a large bowl, whisk together the egg, milk, vegetable oil, banana and vanilla extract. Add the flour, matcha powder, baking powder, and salt. Then whisk until the batter comes together.
Heat a frying pan over medium-low heat. Brush with vegetable oil or butter.
Using a 1/4 cup measure, dollop circles of pancake batter into the frying pan. Wait until bubbles appear and pop on the surface, then flip the pancakes and cook for another minute or so.
Stack pancakes and serve hot with butter and maple syrup. Or why not try some thick natural yoghurt and berry compot!? I love the contrast of the green matcha pancakes and the reds and burgundies of the berries. Play around with the toppings.. let’s make breakfast time fun!
