    I introduce to you freshly baked homemade cranberry scones.  

    Scones just like the classic sponge cake is a traditional menu item at an afternoon high tea.  Served with a strawberry jam and a good dollop of whipped cream.  Scones are so versatile and you can have it sweet or savory but the texture should never be dry.  That is a complete no-no for me. A description of the perfect scone is soft, flaky, buttery and should melt in your mouth. View Post

    This delicious dessert is nutty, drenched in a sugary-brandy sticky syrup that makes it oh so very luscious. The brandy combined with the dates definitely give the dessert that unmistakably rich flavour.  View Post
