Tea and Scones


Time for Tea and Scones this Tuesday!

I am blessed to live about a 15 minute drive from my parents so at the weekend my daughters and I often go visit my mother and there's nothing Mum and my daughters love doing than baking together.

My  oldest daughter was also on a mission to take photos for her art project so I knew it was going to help me with this post too!

This is my Mum's Irish Soda bread scone mix.  We love cherries in the mix though sometimes we might add sultanas or just leave them plain.  if you can get Soda bread flour this is an easy mix.


Mum and her rolling pin as she makes it about half an inch deep and then cuts out rounds.

All ready to go into a hot oven until golden and risen...


Freshly made, golden fluffy scones with melting butter and strawberry jam! Delightful! And served with Mother's china plates and teacups of course!


 Fine English bone china which mum has had for years.


It is a precious time together and I am glad my daughters have this opportunity to enjoy their grandmother's company and wisdom.

Linking again with Stephanie at 


THANK YOU FOR YOUR COMPANY TODAY!

BEST WISHES

  7. How lovely and what a nice day. I love the china and the scones. I used to have tea parties with my kids and bake scones, and even though they are all grown up, they still talk about it. I guess I should do it more often. Thanks for the reminder.
