INTERVIEW WITH @j.foodie99
Everything started ever since the pandemic. My makeup career totally stopped. Instead of continuing to feel stressful and depressed, I decided to heal myself with food. I started to create my own ritual of life by cooking, taking photos, videos and recipe-sharing on my IG account. Most of my posts are about my healthy daily eats. Sometimes I do indulge myself with my favorite foods too. That’s why my tagline mentioned 70% healthy and 30% indulgent.
There is such a strong connection between happiness and food. Healthy eating can be fun and creative, but don't forget to indulge yourself with your favorite food every now and then. Be happy and wise with the food choices you make. You deserve to nourish your body with the nutrients it needs to lead a healthy life.
As the health benefits of Matcha are endless, it's definitely great to consume it in your daily meals!
I love having scones during teatime as much as I love my Matcha. that's when I thought: why not combine both? These Matcha Scones are so simple to make - flakey, airy, and all-rounder umami. Every single bite is blended with Matcha, simply delicious!
5g REN / Matcha powder
250g Bread flour
15g Baking powder
45g Unsalted butter (cold)
Method To Assemble
- Preheat the oven to 200 degrees.
- In a large bowl, combine REN / Matcha powder, bread flour, sugar, and baking powder and mix until well combined.
- Cut the cold butter into small cubes and using your finger, gently break up the butter and rub it into the flour mixture until it forms a flakey texture.
- Mix the egg and milk into a mixture, then gradually stir it into the mix until it forms a soft, dry dough.
- Roll the dough until about 2cm thick, with a 7 to 8cm round cutter. cut out circles from the dough and place them on baking sheets.
- Brush the top of each scone with egg wash before baking in the oven for 18 to 20 mins, or until golden and risen.
- Leave the scones to cool down and it's ready to serve!
