We know that Matcha is good for your health, and we also love the taste! Why not include it in the most important meal of the day: breakfast? Well approved by papa-Pham, here we go!
- Number of ingredients: 5
- Preparation Time: 5-10 minutes
- Cooking Time: about 2-3 minutes per crepe
(For about 20 small crepes – of 10 cm of diameters)
- 2 medium-size eggs
- 2 cups of soy milk
- 1 tea spoon of Matcha powder
- 3-4 cups of all-purpose flour
- Butter (for cooking)
- Optional: Maple Syrup
Depending on the texture that you want, you may prefer to add in more milk or flour. Also, you can totally trade the soy milk for another milk. I know cow milk works well with this; I haven’t tried yet with oat milk nor almond milk. Let me know in the comments if you do how it turns out!
- Measuring instruments
- A cup
- 2 spoons
- A whisk
- A mixing bowl (I used a large salad bowl for this)
- A pan
- A ladle (or for others, the “big spoon”)
- A spatula
- A plate for your beautiful crepes!
- In the cup, pour the milk and microwave it for about 1 minute. It doesn’t need to be insanely hot but a bit warmer than “warm”. This is to help dissolve the Matcha powder.
- Add the Matcha powder to the milk and mix with a spoon.
- In the mixing bowl, crack and whisk 2 eggs. It doesn’t need to make bubbles like for a meringue but you simply want the yolk to break and to make a uniform yellow mix with the egg white. Add the Matcha milk.
- Add the flour about 1 cup at a time and mix. Make sure the texture of the paste is about uniform before adding more flour.
- Adding flour bits by bits help avoid “bubbles” of flour in your mix. It makes it easier to have an even texture.
- Turn on the stove to medium-light.
- At this point, you can taste the Matcha crepe mix. If you’d like it a bit sweeter, you can add maple syrup to taste. I personally added about 2 tablespoons.
- Add about half a teaspoon of butter (you can use the 2nd spoon there). Spread the butter across the pan.
- With the ladle, pour the Matcha crepe mix in the pan.
- I poured 3 small crepes in my pan to make the process faster.
- Flip the crepe after about 1-1.5 minutes. The green of the crepe will have changed color, the texture is a bit denser and it’s easier to move the whole crepe together. Cook another 1-1.5 minute.
- Take out the crepes into the plate, then repeat steps 7-10 until all the Matcha mix is done.
That’s it 🙂
