Matcha is a staple for us here at teapigs. We sip it hot, ice it down in the summer and have found many fun uses for our favorite green powder – *cough, matcha face mask*

Most recently, we decided to cross the line between food and beverage… between breakfast and morning drink. We matcha’d pancakes and boy was it worth it (it = a kitchen dusted green).

teapigs matcha pancakes

makes 12, serves 4 (dependent on hangriness)

  • ¼ cup melted butter
  • 2 eggs
  • ¾ cup buttermilk
  • 2.5 tbsp teapigs matcha
  • ¼ cup white sugar
  • 1 ¼ cup flour
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  1. Combine all wet ingredients – butter, eggs, buttermilk— and whisk away.
  2. Stir dry ingredients—sugar, flour, baking powder and matcha— into the wet. For the matcha, feel free to mix into a little bit of hot water to dissolve any clumps, then add to the rest of the mix.
  3. Heat up pan over medium heat and melt in a dab of butter to avoid sticking.
  4. Griddle up matcha pancakes, sprinkle with powdered sugar and top with a slice of butter… solidifying your title as the king or queen of brunch.
