Lazy Sunday Matcha Pancakes

Lazy Sunday Matcha Pancakes

Enjoy this recipe for matcha pancakes employing culinary-grade matcha (I use Chiki Tea Mystic)…and serve it with a shot of ceremonial-grade matcha to drink!

The reason there’s a culinary caliber of matcha is so it may be used lavishly in recipes so as to be chewed within the other components. Employing a top-grade ceremonial matcha (read: Expensive!!) In recipes could bring about a wimpy matcha taste because it is so elegant and made to deliver subtle yet complex taste notes as you sip and savor a matcha with another mouthfeel. Ceremonial matcha is a travel…culinary matcha is a burst of taste and color. You will need a rather large portion of matcha to be tasted in recipes, so it is good that culinary matcha is much cheaper.

Only yesterday I had been in a conversation with a matcha lover in the US who had been confused about grades of matcha and also how to use them. She believed that using the highest grade of matcha will be best in both recipes and as a shooter — because it was the highest grade! In reality, she had been about to put our Chiki Tea SILK matcha — an award-winning matcha from Yame — in a cornbread recipe to give it a health boost and fairly green color!

  • 160ml (5.41 oz) milk

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 capsules at room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons culinary caliber MYSTIC matcha (16 grams)
  • 12g baking powder (2.5 teaspoons)
