Vegan Matcha Langues de Chat – Recipe

I have a studio flat, which I affectionately call the 'Tashbox'. It's a nice little studio, but I didn't really think things through when I invited seven friends over for a hotpot tomorrow. We'll make it work!

One of my friends is vegan so I'm creating a vegan pot for veggies and tofu – which got me thinking about post-hotpot snacks. Enter vegan matcha langues de chat biscuits. As for the cat face icing? I don't have an excuse for that.

Ready? Let's go.


100g vegan butter
100g caster sugar
90g plain flour
10g matcha
Egg substitute made up to the equivalent of 3 egg whites (I used Orgran)
Pinch of salt

To Decorate (Optional):

Icing sugar, water and drop of food colouring, mixed to a thick consistency


1. Preheat the oven to 180°C and line a baking tray with nonstick baking parchment.

2. Cream the butter and sugar together, sift and stir in the flour, matcha and salt so you have a thick paste, and gradually stir in the egg substitute until you have a thick batter. Scoop into a piping bag with a round-holed nozzle and pipe long shapes onto lined baking sheets, trying to get them even and spacing them far apart enough to spread (about 3cm apart).

3. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until golden around the edges and pale in the centre, and cool on a wire rack to crisp up.

4. Leave to cool completely before icing.

Enjoy, and have fun.
