Lace Pancakes

Lacking some inspiration for the Valentine’s day snack? We have a solution. This recipe is a great idea for a Valentine’s Day snack, cake or ice cream decoration. It doesn’t take long to prepare and looks extremely impressive.

Lace pancakes


100 gr flour

150 ml soy milk

1 egg

2 table spoons honey

5 strawberries

2 teaspoons cocoa

2 teaspoons matcha tea

2 drops of green food colouring


 Whisk the flour in a bowl and form it along the edges. Place the egg in the middle, and stir, adding slowly milk to the batter. Add honey and stir well.  The batter should not be too thin, as for the flat pancakes, but still liquid. Divide it into 3 equal parts; mix one with mashed strawberries, second with cocoa powder and third with matcha tea and green colouring. You need the colouring because the matcha tea does not give a strong colour, although it does give strong taste, therefore, less tea and a bit of food colour will give your pancakes the nice green colour. Of course, you can choose any fillings you like to add the colour, or go all natural. Brush a bit of oil on the pan (you don’t need much, the pancakes are so small that they do not stick to the pan), fill a pastry bag with batter and let your imagination free! Do not flip the pancakes, if you want to retain that beautiful colour.

Having two major passions in life, healthy products and Japan – I am happy to share my experiences with you putting the two in one: cooking Japanese style. For me, it is very important that a product has natural flavour and colour, no preservatives or excessive amount of fat. I always prefer to make my food from scratch- making my own dough, batter, filling or cake decoration. And Japan… Japan is the land of my dreams, where a fairy tale becomes reality. The combination of traditions and highly modern metropolitan life encourages you to explore it more and more. Japanese cuisine is rich with fish, vegetables and rice, making it one of the healthiest. Therefore, I will introduce to you some of the most basic Japanese recipes, along with the ones I have adjusted to European lifestyle. Happy reading and happy cooking!
