Best Cheese Scone recipe that doesn’t require buttermilk

Nothing like a pandemic lockdown / circuit breaker to bring out the inner baker in us! Flour has been sold out for the last 2 months and I’ve only just seen it been stocked on supermarket shelves again in the last couple of weeks. And don’t let me get started on baking chocolate. I’ve been looking for chocolate chips for the longest time and the only ones I can find are compound chocolate. Run far away if you see the word “compound chocolate” because that has a lot of unecessary stuff in it, eg palm oil. What you want is “couverture chocolate”. Compound chocolate is cheaper, but you’ll regret it when you taste the final baked goods.

Anyway, I recently saw RedMart selling its own brand of Chocolate Chips. Beggars can’t be choosers so even though I was looking for Hershey’s Chocolate Chips I decided to Put In Cart. Alas, before I could click check out, the chocolate chips became sold out. Damn those with faster fingers.

So what is a person to do if you can’t find baking chocolate? I guess you can bake scones. Scones are very forgiving to bake, no matter what you do, you’ll most likely still end up with something that is still very much edible. And it’s not something too difficult to master either. Most importantly, it can be made with very few ingredients, that are relatively easy to find in the supermarket these days.

Koi Bubble Tea is available at Jewel Changi Airport for walk-in takeaways!

Currently, shops selling predominantly beverages are not supposed to be open due to the Circuit Breaker / Lockdown in Singapore. This means that most bubble tea shops are closed, unless they are located in a hawker centre/coffee shop or located within an outlet that also happens to sell food. So I was most surprised to see a queue at the Signature KOI shop at Jewel Changi Airport after visiting Fairprice Finest.

I went closer to check it out and it’s true, you can buy KOI bubble tea for takeaway yourself, no need to rely on delivery! That because this is Signature KOI, it means that they also sell other food such as cakes, macarons and pastries. Lucky me too, because it seems they only restarted operations today! If you follow me on my Instagram, you would have seen my instastories about it!
