Afternoon Tea Week takes place this year from the 10th to the 16th of August and as a proper English Institution it's only right that afternoon tea should be conducted with only the best ingredients. The English Provender Co. has teamed up with Afternoon Tea Week this year to sponsor the tastiest week of the year for a week of activities, themed menus, exclusive offers and competitions.
Creating your own homemade afternoon tea with treats to rival the best hotels is made each with the delicious recipes from The English Provender Co. Mouth watering muffins and scrumptious scones made using their fabulous Wild Cranberry Sauce and Luxury Lemon Curd are two perfect ways to make an afternoon tea worthy of this very English experience.
These muffins are fabulously moist and delicious and went down a real treat with the both of us. With just enough orange flavours which highlight that delicious cranberry to the full. These were simple to make and oh so tasty!

English Provender Co Luxury Lemon Curd is the vital ingredient in these delicious Blueberry and Lemon Scones. This tasty Lemon curd is made according to the original secret recipe from founder Ann Curwin's grandmother!
The Blueberries are ripening in our garden at the moment and this was a perfectly lovely way to showcase them!
Tender and delicious these scones are stogged to the hilt with lots of lovely berries and delicious lemon flavours . . .
Split and filled with some softly whipped cream and of course lashings more of lemon curd they went down a real treat as well! Of course clotted cream would have been the creme de la creme for this tasty delicacy, but alas I did not have any, so softly whipped had to do . . . these were quite simply . . . FABULOUS!
