Matcha French Toast:

  • 2 thick-cut sliced bread day old is best
  • 1 large egg beaten
  • 1 tablespoon melted butter or neutral vegetable oil
  • ¼ C whole milk or non-dairy alternative
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar or any sweetener that you like
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ tablespoon matcha sifted
  • 1 teaspoon butter or oil for greasing the pan

To serve:

  • powdered sugar optional
  • maple syrup
  • fresh berries


  • In a shallow bowl, lightly whisk together the egg, melted butter (or oil), and milk. Add in sugar, vanilla extract and matcha. Whisk until everything is combined.
  • If the mixture has a few lumps from the matcha powder, pour the mixture through a sieve.
  • Heat a frying pan over medium-low heat. Lightly grease with 1 teaspoon butter (or oil).
  • Dip one slice of bread into the egg mixture and flip. Press firmly on the bread to ensure it soaks up the mixture.
  • Place the egg-soaked bread into the frying pan and cook over low heat for 4-5 minutes (depending on how thick your bread is). Cover with a lid. Remove the lid and flip the bread. Cover and cook for another 1-2 minutes.
  • Repeat with the remaining slice of bread.
  • Serve with powdered sugar/matcha dusted on top, and/or maple syrup and berries.
