Lemon Drizzle Cake with Edible Flowers

Welcome to Tea Time Treats, a monthly blogging and baking event that is hosted by Karen from Lavender and Lovage and Jane from The Hedgecombers on alternate months. This monthly challenge covers one of our most delightful and eternally popular British institutions, Tea Time. Not just cakes and scones either, but pies and more filling supper dishes come under this culinary umbrella, from afternoon teas of delicate and elegant bakes to the more rustic and filling pleasures of high tea and farmhouse suppers, it’s all showcased in this exciting blogging event. All teatime treats, whether sweet or savoury, breads, scones, sandwiches, pies, pasties, cakes, tarts, desserts, conserves or biscuits (plus many, many more!) will be featured over the coming months. Each monthly challenge will suggest and involve a certain style of bake or popular teatime ingredient, and Karen and Jane will be following the seasons with an eye on many popular feasts and festivals throughout the year. For those of you who are interested in the difference between Afternoon Tea and High Tea, please visit this extremely helpful website here.
