Matcha Souffle Pancakes

Today, let’s add a little twist to original soufflé pancakes and make delicious Matcha souffle pancakes. 

The matcha in the pancake batter makes it a little more shrink than the original. It might be a little difficult, but give it a try! I hope you enjoy these fluffy matcha pancakes as much as I do.


Matcha Souffle Pancakes

Servings 1


Mascarpone Cheese Cream

  • 120 g (1/2 cup) Mascarpone cheese
  • 120 ml (1/2 cup) whipping cream

Japanese Souffle Pancakes

  • 2 large eggs
  • 30 ml (2 tbsp) milk
  • 24 g (3 tbsp) all-purpose flour
  • 1 g (1/4 tsp) baking powder
  • 2 g (1 tsp) matcha powder
  • 26 g (2 tbsp) sugar


Mascarpone Cheese Cream

  1. In a big bowl, whip the whipping cream until medium soft peaks form. If you like the resulting cream to be soft, whip it a little softer, if you like it firm and frothy, whip it thoroughly. 

  2. Add mascarpone cheese to the bowl and mix with a rubber spatula. Keep in the refrigerator until ready to use.

Matcha Souffle Pancakes

  1. Preheat the pan over the lowest heat. Separate eggs into the whites and yolks, make sure no egg yolk gets into the egg whites. Whisk the egg yolk and milk in a large bowl. 

  2. In a small bowl, mix together the all-purpose flour, baking powder and matcha powder. Then shift into the egg yolk mixture bowl, mix to combine.

  3. Put the egg whites into another clean bowl. Add the sugar in three parts, whip them up with a stand mixer. Whip until the stiff peak stage.

  4. Add the meringue to the egg yolk mixture and mix it gently. Avoid breaking the meringue.

  5. Brush the pan with the cooking oil. Remove the excess oil with paper. Pipe the pancake batter onto the heated pan and cover with the lid. Bake them for around 4 minutes.

  6. Check each pancake if it becomes a golden color, then gently flip it upside down. Cover with the lid and bake them around 3 minutes.


  1. Transfer to the plate, put a big spoonful Mascarpone cheese cream, decorate with fruits of your choice, sprinkle a little powdered sugar and matcha powder for decoration. Drizzle a generous amount of maple syrup over the top and enjoy!

Helpful Tips

Since everyone has a different preference for the strength of the bitterness of matcha, feel free to increase or decrease the amount of matcha. Other flours, such as rice flour, whole wheat flour can also be used, but the resulting pancakes will be a little less fluffy.
