little Matcha wonders
These matcha waffles warm up beautifully in the toaster oven. So If you’re a bit lazy sometimes (like us) you will love this.
You bake up a batch ahead over the weekend and freeze them for a tasty grab-and-go breakfast during the week.
1 tablespoon matcha
3/4 cup flour
1/2 cup mochiko (sweet rice flour)
2 tablespoons of sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 tablespoons melted butter
3/4 - 1 cup buttermilk
In a large bowl; mix dry ingredients (matcha, flour, mochiko, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt)
In another bowl; mix wet ingredients (egg, vanilla extract, butter, buttermilk)
Combine dry and wet ingredients. Mix until no lumps remain.
Preheat waffle iron. Pour in waffle batter and let sit until waffles form.
MAPLE GRAPEFRUIT SYRUP:
Peal and segment grapefruits.
Preheat oven to high broil setting. Lay segmented grapefruit on a lined baking tray.
Sprinkle generously with brown sugar and a little maple syrup. Broil until caramelized.
Serve hot waffles with grapefruit and maple syrup to taste.
A little trick is not to completely fill your waffle maker with the mix. Ladle on the mix from the center so it’ll spread out, but not touch the outer edges.
