Instructions

Crepes

  1. Combine the milk, flour, cornstarch, matcha powder, sugar, eggs and melted butter in a blender and blitz until smooth

  3. Heat a little vegetable oil in a medium non-stick frying pan over medium-low heat, and wipe the excess oil with a paper towel
  4. Pour a 1/4 cup of crepe batter, while swirling, to coat the bottom of the pan
  5. Heat gently until the surface becomes matte, then flip with a spatula and cook for 10 seconds
  6. Repeat with the remaining batter
  7. Allow crepes to come to room temperature

Vanilla Cream

  1. Place cream and sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer, beat for 3-4 mins until stiff peaks

Matcha White Chocolate Ganache

  1. Sieve the matcha powder over the white chocolate in a heatproof bowl
  2. Heat the cream in a small saucepan or microwave until steaming

Assembly
