Sticky date and walnut cake

 After browsing through an afternoon tea baking book, I found a really nice recipe for Date and walnut cake.  Its sticky like sticky toffee sponge and tasty with a caramel butter icing piped on the top.  Highly recommended!

English scones

Classic English scones with homemade jam. I led an online baking class for a friend today making plain scones. Taste delicious from the oven with jam and butter and a cup of tea.

Lockdown birthday cake

This small loaf style cake is an ideal size to celebrate a birthday during lockdown. It serves up to 4 people, so 2 generous slices each if there's only 2 of you in a household!  This cake is a vanilla sponge filled with strawberry jam and creamy butter icing.  

Fancy a Jammy dodger?

A shortbread biscuit filled with strawberry jam and then dusted with icing sugar.  Great way to ease those January blues especially accompanied with a refreshing cup of tea 🍵
