Jubilee Cream Tea Cake

It has been nearly a month since I have done any baking for my blog. I have been pretty busy the last few weeks... I had great success raising over £250 for the charity, Restless Development, doing the Live Below the Line challenge. We then went down to Cornwall for a little holiday and had a lovely time. We had lots of sunshine and yummy food. I love it down there! Being inspired by Cornwall and the Queen's Jubilee, I found the perfect recipe to bake. A cream tea cake: giant scone base, whipped clotted cream, strawberries and blueberries! We had quite a few cream teas in Cornwall and this giant version is just like the mini treat, very YUMMY! I love this recipe and can't wait to make it again, you should definitely try this one out!

Ingredients:
175g butter, chopped
250g self-raising flour
1 tsp baking powder
50g golden caster sugar
150ml whole milk, cold
Lemon juice, tiny squeeze
Egg, beaten for glazing
For the topping:
150g clotted cream
50g golden caster sugar
Splash of vanilla extract
200g strawberries, chopped
200g blueberries
1 tbsp strawberry jam
2.
Steps:
Preheat oven to 220C/430F. With a spatula, quickly mix the chopped butter with the flour, baking powder and 50g sugar, then add the milk and lemon juice, and mix together until you have a butter-speckled dough. Knead the dough a few times on a floured surface. Roll out to a circle, press into a lightly greased 20cm sandwich tin, then brush the top with the egg and scatter with a little extra sugar. Bake for 20 minutes until risen and golden, then transfer to a cooling rack. While the scone is cooling, toss the strawberries and blueberries in a bowl with a little sprinkling of extra sugar and the jam, then set aside. In a separate bowl, whisk the clotted cream until stiff with 50g sugar and a splash of vanilla extract. To assemble the cake, place the scone base on a serving plate, spread the cream over, leaving a slight edge of the cake showing, then pile the saucy berries on top.

  1. Happy Jubilee weekend! This looks amazing - I remember having the largest scone in my life in Cornwall (at the eden project). Well done for raising so much for charity!

  2. They laughed at us, and told us outright we failed to possess a chance
    to get into a home payday loans summary: the house loan is definitely an amount that borrowers offer from the safety of the homes
    they will own.
