Matcha Turtle Rolls

Red Wolfe TeaChef Level 3

These cute little turtle rolls are sure to be a hit with the reptile fan in your life. They taste delicious, and are so satisfying to shape.

30 m 6


  • 1 package instant yeast
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • ½ cup warm water
  • ½ cup hot milk
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 egg
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1-2 tbsp matcha (depending on color and taste you want)


In a small mixing bowl, dissolve yeast and sugar in warm water. Let stand about 10 minutes. Heat the milk in a small saucepan until it bubbles, then remove from heat. Add the butter and stir until melted; let cool until lukewarm. In a large mixing bowl, combine the yeast mixture with the cooled milk, matcha, butter, egg, 2 cups flour and salt. Beat well to combine. Add the remaining flour, 1/2 cup at a time, stirring well after each addition. When the dough has pulled together, turn it out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and supple, about 8 minutes. Cover dough and let rest for 10 minutes. Cut into 6 pieces. Shape each piece into a turtle, then cover and rest for 20 minutes. Score the backs of each turtle to make a shell pattern. Bake at 400 for 12-15 minutes. Enjoy!

    I plan to test this one out once i get yeast. Hoping that the prepackaged matcha i got from adagio works for it.

      Prepackaged matcha works great.
