- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- ½ tsp salt
- 2 eggs
- 1¼ almond milk
- 2 tbsp. coconut oil + extra for cooking
- 2 tbsp Premium Culinary Matcha
- Use a medium-sized mixing bowl to sift and combine all the dry ingredients. That includes flour, salt, and matcha powder.
- Whisk your eggs & almond milk in a smaller bowl.
- Pour ¼ of the egg mix, at a time to the other bowl. Whisk while you add the batter.
- Add coconut oil into your crepe mix. Whisk until you get a silky smooth texture. Avoid lumps and clumps to ensure that you get paper-thin crepes.
- Cover the crepe batter with plastic wrap and pop it in the fridge.
- Refrigerate overnight (or at least 1 hour) to set the batter.
- Heat the frying pan/crepe pan by keeping the stove at a high medium heat.
- Then grease and season the pan with oil before pouring ¼ cup of crepe batter. The shorter sides make flipping them easier. Make sure that your batter spreads evenly.
- Cook crepe for 30 secs-1 min. (or until it is cooked).
- Flip over to cook the remaining side (30 secs).
- Repeat step 8-10 for the rest of the batter. You might have to adjust the heat to prevent the crepe from burning.
- Stack your crepes on a serving plate or baking sheet while you cook the remaining batch. Cover the cooked ones with a clean kitchen towel to absorb excess oil.
- Douse and drizzle your crepes with natural sweeteners, honey/maple syrup. Add whipped cream if you are feeling indulgent.
- Serve your plate of homemade matcha crepes with fresh seasonal fruits and a hot cuppa on the side.
- Add the matcha flavor depending on your taste buds and the intense color you want. You may increase or decrease the quantity as you like it.
- Make paper-thin crepes by whipping the batter well. Stop when you get a silky smooth batter.
- It prevents your crepes from becoming moist while you cook the rest.
