Recipes (Tried & Tested)

I love to try new recipes that I’ve discovered from places I’ve been, through friends and family, from books and blogs or just from searching the net.  So what better way to pass on some of my favourites than through my blog.  Share the love.


Lemon & Rosemary Breakfast Loaf

Whilst honeymooning earlier this year, Mr Tea Room and I spent a couple of days in Lyme Regis on the beautiful Jurassic Coast.  We stayed in the lovely Dorset House, a luxury B&B housed in a Grade II listed Regency villa, overlooking the Dorset coast.  It was here, amongst the tasty wholesome breakfasts, that we sampled the … Continue reading Lemon & Rosemary Breakfast Loaf


Whilst in Cornwall a couple of weeks ago I had a delightful honey muesli trifle at the Cherry Trees Cafe in Padstow Harbour.  I also love Granola so in search of something in between I found this recipe in my lovely Primrose Bakery book that I just had to try! You will need: 170g unsalted … Continue reading Granola

This … Continue reading Simple Simnel Cake

Lemon and Garlic … Continue reading Summer Spread

Good Old Victoria Sponge

After the past week we’ve all had it seems a bit trivial to be talking cake but if there’s one thing we can all agree on its a bloomin’ good Victoria sponge.  Ma tearoom has always excelled at this cake so I had a lot to live up to when I made this for friends … Continue reading Good Old Victoria Sponge
