Flaky Pistachio Matcha Pancakes



Not something you’d expect to find incorporated into the luck of the Irish. But we’re rolling with it! These pancakes were inspired by scallions pancakes commonly found in asian cuisine and gave us the perfect opportunity to test this uncommon flavor and recipe combination. 🎩

  • 01 With a spatula or chopsticks, mix the flour while slowly pouring in the hot water, allowing the water to readily absorb. The dough should be rough and crumbly.

  • 05 Brush or spread a thin layer of the filling onto the rolled out dough, leaving about ¼ inch of the edges bare. Sprinkle on the pistachios evenly and trifold the dough
  • 06 Roll the dough up from one open end to the other and pinch the seams closed. Place it cinnamon roll - style and flatten gently. Set under the damp towel or plastic wrap and repeat with the rest of the dough.
  • 07 Roll out each piece of dough again to create a pancake. Heat a frying pan or skillet over medium high heat and add about 2 - 3 tablespoons of oil to the pan. Add a pancake and cool on both sides until golden brown. Repeat with the rest of the pancakes and add more oil as necessary
