teatime in England is immensely satisfying and altogether a simple way to warm the cockles of one's heart. The traditional scone is a staple in any Afternoon Tea; piled high with raspberry jam and clotted cream, served warm and freshly baked from the oven.
With the awful British weather continuing, I decided that the only thing to make would be a delightful comfort food that only takes 10-15 minutes to bake and can put a smile on someone's face.
Put your feet up, read the Sunday papers and grab a cup of tea to make your afternoon tea that little bit more enjoyable..
I used Nigella's recipe for Lily's Scones, which I have found to be one of the best recipes yet.
