A few people have been asking me for this recipe following my Instagram post a few weeks ago. It’s taken me a couple week as I was busy with a couple big birthday cakes. There are a lot of birthdays this month, so it’s been a busy one.
So back to crêpes! Everyone that knows me well, knows I’m a big breakfast lover and I’m particularly a fan of sweet breakfasts. I grew up having toast with homemade jam pretty much every morning so having eggs and bacon at 7 AM is not really my thing. If it wasn’t toast, I would have a croissant, pain au chocolat or any other pastry that I could get from my mom’s bakery. And on weekends, we usually had crêpes. One of our weekend traditions. So a few weeks ago, I felt to make some while my husband was still sleeping. I usually do my classic vanilla crêpes but since we bought a big bag of matcha, I thought it would be a good idea to add some and try a new flavour. Not only were they tasty, they looked amazing as well. They were pretty appetizing with a side of fresh fruit, and a dollop of whipped cream or maple syrup. I hope you will enjoy them as much as we did. Leave a note in the comments if you try them, letting me know what you think!
- 2 large eggs
- 2 Tbsp powder sugar
- 3/4 cup flour
- 2 tsp matcha powder
- 1 1/4 cup milk
- In a medium bowl, combine the eggs and sugar. Then slowly add the flour and matcha with half of the milk. Whisk well until smooth and gradually add the remaining milk. If there are lumps, pour the batter through a strainer and let it rest in the fridge for an hour (the resting period allows the batter to be thicker, the bubbles to go away and creates a better texture). But if you’re in a rush, that’s fine as well, you don’t have to rest the batter and it will still be yummy. But if you do that, make sure to put 1 cup of milk instead of 1 1/4 cup, as it might be too liquid with the full amount.
- Heat a little bit of butter on a crêpe pan or any other medium pan, pour a small amount of batter onto it and cook on both sides until slightly coloured.
- Repeat with the remaining batter.
- Enjoy them with some maple syrup, fresh fruits or any topping of your choice.
Note: This recipe gives 8 crêpes and is good for two people. Feel free to double the recipe. My matcha powder is quite strong so 2 tsp is enough but if you want a stronger flavor, don’t hesitate to add a little bit more.
