Treats For Mum

Mother’s Day Sunday 11th March

Victoria sponge cake

The perfect celebration cake – the Victoria Sponge combines strawberries and cream and is delicious served for afternoon tea.

Spinach, cheese and ham puffs

Quick and simple, these savoury puffs are delicious served hot or cold with a side salad

Banana bread

Banana bread is perfect for using up overripe bananas – the browner they are the better. Mum will enjoy a slice with a cup of tea or toasted for breakfast.

Carrot and orange soup

Carrot and orange soup is the ideal starter for a Sunday roast.

Fluffy scones
No afternoon tea would be complete without some generously buttered scones with lashings of cream and jam. These can be rustled up in no time and kids will love stamping out the scones and painting them with egg wash.

Rose and vanilla biscuits

Delicious and delicate, these biscuits are a welcome treat with a cuppa!

Breakfast in bed

Breakfast in bed is a classic winner as mum can have a much-deserved lie in while the kids help out in the kitchen. Who can resist a generous, fluffy pancake? Let the kids get busy choosing and setting out a variety of toppings, perhaps blueberries, raspberries with almonds?
