National Tea Day: 10 recipes that go great with a cuppa
Today is National Tea Day and as a Brit I felt obliged to do a new post in it’s honour. I love tea. Strong but milky, no sugar. I love to sit down and unwind with a cuppa, wake up with one in the morning and drink one while I’m blogging (yup, I’m drinking one right now). Whatever the occasion, tea.
To Dunk or Not to Dunk
To mark National Tea Day I’ve rounded up ten recipes that go great with tea. I had to limit myself to ten because I’d drink tea with pretty much everything and the list was getting bigger and bigger.
Shortbread topped with caramel and a Cadbury flake. Very indulgent.
I make these at Christmas but they’re great for every day. Practise your piping skills on one of these.
A classic British cake with a classic British drink. To find out more about the origin of the Victoria sponge take a look at my recipe.
This loaf cake is super soft and has a light marmalade taste.
One of my favourite recipes. Why dunk a biscuit in your tea when you can dunk a biscuit encased in chocolate fridge cake?
Like a biscuit but better. With a jam and buttercream filling.
If you’re after something a bit fruity with your brew, this lemon traybake is the one.
Gooey chocolate chip cookies. To dunk or not to dunk?
Wanting to be a little bit healthier? This banana bread has no fat and the option of no sugar too!
Not just any ordinary shortbread.
Can you pick a favourite out of all of those ideas or do you have a recipe that’s perfect with tea? Let me know in the comments.
