Chunks of strawberries, melding and blending with chunks of Matcha Chocolate for these delicious Strawberry Matcha Chocolate Scones. Best scones ever!
This might become our new favorite flavor combination and these scones our new favorite scones. I'm sure, they would easily become your favorite too, if you just tried one. Chunks of strawberries, melding and blending with chunks of Matcha Chocolate, all encompassed by a wonderful crumbly, soft, texture. Topped by a beautiful drizzle of melted white chocolate. Moreover, the recipe for the scone dough makes the "perfect scone", believe me.
This blogging adventure has brought in our lives some awesome people, people like us that have a passion for food, not only bloggers but also all those we meet along the way and that get inspired by the fire they see in our eyes when we talk about food. Lately, we met an incredible lady, Danika from Danika Eats Tea, passionate about what she does, lively as a fire cracker; she was giving away samples at Planet Organic on a Saturday afternoon. We stopped and tasted her tea and began talking about food and recipes and were quite intrigued by her recipes using tea. We were kindly offered a gift of matcha chocolate to try, a bar that she created. And we were hooked, as ideas were already forming in our minds, one in particular, using it in a scone, in combination with strawberries. And here they are: Strawberry Matcha Chocolate Scones. Best scones ever!
Matcha chocolate and strawberries, such a great combo!
Who would have thought? That was our first time and certainly won't be the last. We're planning on ordering some more matcha bars from Danika Eats Tea, and try other combinations or enjoying it as it is.
Loreto always tells me about this voice...this intuitive voice that guides him in his cooking. I'm sure I had it since very young but it's so busy in there that it was like a distortion among many sounds, lol. Now, I'm starting to hear it more clearly, not because it's less busy in there, I just decide to choose what to listen to.
Now, these scones, I did not say they were the best scones ever, for nothing. You know that I have a mild "obsession" for scones, for good ones, though. You don't want to know how many times I've been and I still am disappointed at scones I order in some cafés. They are doughy, lacking in flavor other than eggs and flour, even when they have fruit, the fruit has been rationed, and the only appealing thing is the sugar sprinkled on the top that gives a slightly crumbly texture.
These scones are a all different story. They are soft and crumbly, packed with juicy strawberries and chunks of matcha chocolate. The combination is very zen in balance, leaving you with a sense of flavor and texture not one taking from the other, equality! Every bite makes you roll your eyes, in a good way, lol, and smack your lips. Wishing it never gets to the last bite.
Hope you try them and let us know how you liked them. It makes us happy to hear your feedback and comments.
