Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Place matcha powder in a bowl and slowly add boiling water while whisking continuously until tea is frothy and matcha is fully incorporated. Refrigerate or set aside to cool.

  • Mix milk, melted butter, and vanilla extract together in a large mixing bowl. Beat egg into the wet ingredients.

  • Mix flour, sugar, salt, and baking soda together in a bowl. Sift into another bowl.

  • Whisk cooled tea mixture into the milk mixture. Add sifted flour mixture to the milk mixture and mix batter thoroughly.

  • Heat a lightly buttered frying pan or griddle over medium heat, but do not let it smoke. Pour 1/4 cup batter into the pan and cook until small bubbles are visible near the center of the pancake, 1 to 3 minutes. Flip and cook on the second side 1 to 3 minutes more.
