An Afternoon Tea with Buttermilk Scones:
Win 12 pieces of Penzance Dinnerware with Churchill!
As many of you might remember I am the official Churchill China Blogger! You can read all about my association with Churchill China in several previous posts here: Mothering Sunday and Blue & White China: Little Victoria Lemon Daisy Cakes Recipe and My Mum’s “Teacup Apricot and Honey Porridge” Recipe for a Cold March Morning. There are also some lovely recipes for little Victoria Daisy Cakes and Teacup Apricot and Honey Porridge there if either of those grabs your fancy too! I LOVE the dinnerware that Churchill sent to me, and you will see it featured in lots of my recipe photos, even when I am not writing an “official” post.
Today I am sharing a simple scone recipe that would be perfect for any afternoon tea as well as showcasing the tea set, which is part of my Penzance range of china that Churchill sent me. As well as a recipe, I am also delighted to inform all Lavender and Lovage readers that there is an opportunity to win one of SIX sets of Penzance Dinnerware from Churchill China, and all you have to do is follow the badge link in my sidebar, which looks like this………..
…….or by entering here: Win one of Six Sets of 12 Pieces of Churchill China Penzance Dinnerware. The prize comprises: 4 Dinner Plates, 4 Side Plates and 4 Bowls, all in the BEAUTIFUL pattern of Penzance, which you will see in my photos, and as shown below.
It’s a fantastic chance to win a “core” starter set, with an opportunity to add to it gradually from the rest of the Penzance range, as well as being perfect for everyday family meals. The Penzance range is …“where flora and fauna combine, this classic collection of blue and white tableware takes a modern spin on folk design. Let the shared kinship put you at one with nature’s friendliest creatures. A complete range which showcases two ‘mix and match’ pattern designs for a truly unique look”…and if you would like to see the rest of the range, including lots of pieces I have and use, you can see the full range here: Penzance Range. There is also a list of independent stockists there too.
But back to my light and fluffy fruit scones! The mainstay of the tea time table and so easy to make; a batch of scones can be made and on the table in half an hour, they are so simple. I am a BIG scone lover, as regular readers will know – and I have lots of scone recipes on Lavender and Lovage – both sweet and savoury. The scone recipe I am sharing today is for my much-loved and often requested Buttermilk and Mixed Fruit Scones, it’s the buttermilk makes them so light and fluffy, and if you are not a lover of mixed fruit, then you can omit that for plain scones, all ready to be adorned with butter, jam and cream!
I hope you enjoy my scones if you make them, and DO ENTER the competition to win one of six sets of Penzance dinnerware, it’s such an amazing prize, and someone (well, SIX people) have to win! My recipe is shared below, and I will be back later with a new weekly meal plan, some new 5:2 diet recipes as well as some treats! Have a wonderful Tuesday, Karen.
