Matcha, Ricotta & Coconut Pancakes
Makes: 12


For the pancakes:

– 100g plain flour

– 4 teaspoons JING Organic Matcha Ceremonial Grade 

– 2 teaspoons baking powder

– 4 tablespoons icing sugar, sifted

– pinch of salt

– 250g ricotta

– 180ml coconut milk

– 2 large eggs

To serve:

– a little toasted coconut

– greek yogurt

– honeycomb or honey

– a selection of fresh fruit




Heat the oven to 180c/350f/gas mark 4.
Sift the flour, 3 teaspoons of matcha, baking powder and salt into a large bowl. Stir in 3 tablespoons of the sifted icing sugar.
In a separate bowl beat together the ricotta, coconut milk and eggs until smooth.
Beat the ricotta mixture into the dry ingredients, again making sure the batter is smooth.
Combine the remaining matcha powder and icing sugar in a bowl. Place in a fine sieve.
Heat a non-stick frying pan over a medium-low heat. Brush over a little vegetable oil, not too much, you need just enough to lightly coat the surface.
For each pancake spoon about 50ml (or 3 tablespoons) of the batter mixture into the hot pan. Cook for 3 minutes until bubbles appear over the top surface and the underneath is dotted brown. Flip over and cook for a further 1-2 minutes until the pancakes are risen a little and firm to the touch.
Transfer to a plate, cover loosely with foil and keep warm in the oven while cooking the remaining pancakes. Lightly oil the pan between each batch.
Arrange the pancakes on warm plates and top with some toasted coconut, yogurt and honeycomb. Add some fresh berries and serve dusted with the matcha icing sugar mix.
