  • 5 or 6" round cast iron pan


  • ¼ C all-purpose flour
  • 1 ½ teaspoon matcha sifted
  • 1 large egg
  • ¼ C whole milk
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon butter for greasing the pan


  • extra matcha
  • powdered sugar
  • fresh fruit
  • whipped cream optional


  • In a blender, add the flour, matcha, egg, milk, vanilla, and oil. Blend together until smooth.
  • Refrigerate the batter for at least 1 hour.
  • Preheat oven to 450°F/232°C. Preheat the cast iron skillet for 20 minutes in oven.
  • Carefully (using gloves) remove hot pan from oven. Add 1 tablespoon butter to the pan.
  • Pour the batter into the hot pan. Place in oven for 10-12 mins until the dutch baby is golden and puffy.
  • Remove from oven (it will deflate a bit) and garnish with extra matcha powder and your desired toppings. Serve immediately.
