Japanese pancakes are inspired by the American ones, but they're taller and softer, perfect for breakfast or as a snack accompanied by a cup of tea or coffe.
In this version they are made with matcha tea in the dough and garnished with berries and whipped cream. They can also be garnished with vanilla ice cream, maple syrup, fresh fruit and even melted chocolate, according to your taste.
