Anyone For A High Tea?

Ok, even though the title almost gives it away, what am I posting today?

Perhaps this little party will enlighten you on it…


N.B. British accents must be taken if speaking this dialogue out loud

Devonshire, England

“Oh, Lord Grey, what an unexpected surprise! Take his coat, Jamieson, immediately!”

“Yes, ‘m”

“Frightful weather m’dear, absolutely awful. I dare say I am drenched to the bone and am a forced imposition on you.”

“Oh poppycock! – Harold, come into the parlour please”

hightea 4
“Of course darling, here I am – Why, hello old chap! Blooming rotten luck getting caught in this downpour, ay? Nothing like a cuppa to warm you up though! Mildred, would you be a dear?”

“Not at all, you stay right put in the drawing room Lord Grey, I won’t be a minute! I say Harold, get Betty to light the fire will you?”

7 minutes later

“… I dare say it was just not cricket when -”

hightea 11

“My apologies for interrupting Ma’am but where may I place the tea tray?”

“On the side will do. Now you were saying Lord Grey…”

Lord Grey slathers some jam

“Well, to be brutality honest, what I was saying no longer upholds any importance in the slightest Mildred. This jam is exceptional on this. My Prunella will simply love to have the recipe of both!”

hightea 15
Mildred pinkens

“Of course sir, I shall tell Cook to write up the recipe immediately”

“Exceptional – And this cream, clotted to perfection, serves as such a delicious side. I am enjoying myself immensely!”

3 empty plates later…

“Right o’, best be off now, old chap. Would not want the missus to worry now would we?”

hightea 3
“Not for a long shot. Tally-ho and what not old chum.”

“Impeccable hospitality Mildred. I shall have Prunella call on you soon.”

“Thank you sir, you are most kind.”

Lord Grey leaves rather full and content


Now surely it is obvious what I made today (photos, sides ;)). No, not jam or specially clotted cream. No, I had a small Devonshire tea party with my family today. I made scones πŸ˜€

hightea 12
Spiced Raisin SCONES

Served with mouth watering strawberry jam and vanilla whipped cream left over from a very special breakfast πŸ˜‰

Scones are not simple – in fact that they are a lot harder than they look. An over kneaded dough and a pinch too little of baking powder can have you taking rocks out of the oven instead of soft, crumby melt in mouth wonders. Never fear, I am here to make sure that does not, will not, ever happen πŸ˜›

hightea 16
First up, I am sure you want the recipe. I have had this recipe for ages and finally, fi-na-llyyy, discovered where I found it over 3 years ago. I know, 3 yrs is huge!

This is the recipe. You are actually one click away from acquiring the best scone recipe in the world. No restaurant, cafe or bakery has produced more beautiful scones. Don’t believe me? Why don’t you try it out πŸ˜‰

hightea 7
But, as you know, I have my own secrets. I like making things fluffy, soft and crumby and have done quite a bit of research into it – here is how I changed this recipe to make it a little zestier closer to the scone which should be knighted – I am not joking (notice the absence of a smiley)

  • Add 1 tsp of baking soda into the dry ingredients
  • Put 1 tsp of lemon juice with the wet ingredients – it reacts with the baking soda for a soft crumb and fluffier texture
  • This may sound a little crazy but TRIPLE-SIFT your dry ingredients – aerating is a baker’s best friend believe me πŸ™‚
  • This may sound crazy too but use Self Raising Flour (SRF) AND 1 tbs of baking powder – can use more rise with me? If you do not have SRF, simply use the 1 tbs baking powder to 1 cup plain flour rule and add extra baking powder – works for me πŸ™‚
  • To all healthy people, sorry but DO NOT use wholemeal flour as a sub – it does not aerate as well
    hightea 8
  • NEVER OVER-KNEAD, STIR ETC THE DOUGH – You know rock hard scones? That is how they begin!
  • Put scones together while baking – I don’t know if this is fiction or fact but apparently this makes them rise together well – no harm πŸ˜‰
  • If you are using the rolling method, never roll out too thin
    hightea 14
  • If you are using (my) the moulding into shape method, make them small, round, fat balls for best shape
  • To all healthy people, DO use margarine if desired as there is actually no difference between that and butter
  • Use a variety of spices – only cinnamon is so out
  • You can use brown sugar too πŸ™‚
  • I used craisins because I am to-tah-ly fashionable and a la mode with the foodie world πŸ˜›

hightea 9
So now you have:

  • Lord Grey’s experience
  • The Recipe
  • The Tips

and of course, aΒ PRINTABLE RECIPE!

Do you really need any more of a push? Oh right, it took me 25 minutes in all, including baking time, so can you taste your afternoon tea (or lunch if you are like me?)

Enjoy your Devonshire tea m’dears πŸ˜‰

hightea 13
And before I leave you, just a little note: I do not have any chocolate baking planned for, um, quite a while. *Waits to be hit by saucepans and rotten tomatoes*
Feeling calmer? But to make sure you all receive your daily (or um every three-four daily) dose of chocolate as part of a healthy blogger diet, I am posting up a link and pic of an exceptional chocolate dessert I may have seen on my foodie adventures.

Today I feature the marvellous Jasline @ Food Is My Life (mine too!) with her Chocolate, Mousse, Meringue & Blueberry Curd Layered Cake – excuse me? Where is my share? Honestly people these days πŸ˜‰
Jokes Jasline, what a fabulous recipe!

Cheerio for now! I shall see you on the weekend after my history exam is ancient, my english exam has been satisfactorially executed et mon examen francais est finir!

    This takes me right to my childhood! My mom and I always had tea time πŸ™‚ Your scones are superb!! It must be the secret recipe, can’t wait to try.

    • Awww too cute memories πŸ™‚
      I am glad you enjoyed the scones my friend – secret recipe all over the net but secret recipe for sure πŸ˜€

    • Hi I’m sorry about the hold up in blogging but exams have been a killer (are killing)
      I should be posting today though πŸ™‚
      Thanks for being so sweet my friend!

      Choc Chip Uru

  5. Beautiful! And what a fun post to read. πŸ™‚ I love the additions you made to the scones recipe, very smart and I’m going to try that too. Those scones look absolutely perfect. Thank you so much for connecting, I am so excited about finding your blog too!

    • Thanks on both counts πŸ˜€
      I hope the tips and additions help out should you decide to make scones – definitely recommended πŸ˜‰
      It was a pleasure to connect with a blogger as talented you πŸ™‚

  6. samology says:

    oooh! Best recipe, eh? I’ve got to try this then! I’ve made scone twice before and they turned out pretty great, but still not as great as my favourite scones ever from a bakery!! Gotta try this now!

    • I love how people respond to the challenge of best ever πŸ˜‰
      Hope this is the recipe you are looking for – that certainly was the case with me πŸ˜€

      Choc Chip Uru

    • Thanks so much, it’s awesome knowing you enjoyed them so much! Personally I favour strawberry scones the most though you have me intrigued by blueberry scones πŸ™‚
      Pleasure always visiting you my friend!

  7. Simply Tia says:

    I’ve always wanted to try my hands at scones but just have not gathered up the courage yet! Fabulous job Uru. I would soooooooo eat those delicious scones you made. Well done.

    • Thank you my friend! I am glad you liked them so much πŸ˜€
      I promise you there is absolutely no need to have courage in this case my friend – you will be better than fine when it comes to making scones πŸ™‚

      Choc Chip Uru

  8. You are definitely one of the funnier people I know! I LOVE the British accent, in fact, one night during my college years I spent an entire evening speaking in that accent because I loved it so much. I’m such a dork. Love the recipe too!

    • Haha thank you – and you a dork? Psshaw a friend and I put on a *horrid* British accent for one whole school day driving everyone crazy πŸ˜‰
      Glad you enjoyed these my friend!

      Choc Chip Uru

  9. LOL!! What an entertaining mind you have!! I love the whole conversation, spot on! πŸ™‚ These scones look so amazing, especially with the jam & a bit of cream on top! MMM I think I have to have one of these immediately! YUM!!

    • Haha I am so happy you got in with the dialogue πŸ˜€
      But even more so thank you for enjoying the scones! Jam and cream make them – want to come over for a tea party? πŸ™‚

      Choc Chip Uru

    • Wow I am honoured to meet a Super British πŸ˜€
      That is so cool! And would you do that for me? Do you do home appearances or is it one live show? πŸ˜›

    lol u certainly have a flair with story writing πŸ™‚ the scones look crumbly and delecious.. all the best!

  11. Meenakshi says:

    I have always wondered how to make scones, read about them so much in children’s books. Now I know! It looks difficult, so I shall attempt it when I am well and truly up for a challenge. As for the rest of the post (in my best Brit accent) simply maah-velous, daahling!

    • Honestly my friend, scones are not that difficult – just a few tips and they will be soft, fluffy and melt in your mouth I promise! Hope you try some soon πŸ˜€
      And you are awfully kind πŸ˜‰

      Choc Chip Uru

  12. Did I tell you how much I love reading your posts?
    Probably not enough
    You are really talented my friend and coming here is a real joy.
    I was looking forward to your scones post and you never disappoint.
    Good luck with your exams

    • Thank you my friend for so many wonderfully kind words – making my day truly πŸ™‚
      I am very glad you enjoyed these scones as well – the recipe will never disappoint πŸ˜€

      Choc Chip Uru

  13. Scones are definitely hard to nail, but when they’re done right, they’re oh-so-delicious with that crumbly exterior and the fluffy interior. Now these look like they were made perfectly. If only I could grab one of these babies from the computer right now.

    • I agree completely with you when it comes to scones – there is such a fine line between nice and rock πŸ˜‰
      Thank you so much for enjoying mine. I wish I could virtually send you to become literal πŸ˜€

      Choc Chip Uru

    • Thank you so much πŸ˜€
      I agree, a scone without texture is not sconeful at all! I hope you can make some soon with just the fluffy crumbiness to satisfy your cravings πŸ˜‰

      Choc Chip Uru

  14. ha, this post is awesome! i actually have tea every afternoon at home (definitely not a fancy high tea, though!) + these scones would be fabulous for that. i was just thinking today that i should make scones soon. it’s like you read my mind. =)

    • Thanks πŸ˜€
      Definitely tea with scones is unbeatable so I say go ahead πŸ™‚
      And there must be some telepathy going around – or we can just say great minds think alike πŸ™‚

      Choc Chip Uru

  15. Soni says:

    Your scones look absolutely perfect.Reminds me of the time I spent in England!!I love the texture of these and cannot wait to try :)Thanks for sharing U!

    • My door is always open to scone lovers πŸ˜‰
      Thank you for enjoying them! I wish I knew where they sold clotted cream as well but your specialty shop idea is a great start πŸ˜€

      Choc Chip Uru

  16. Nami | Just One Cookbook says:

    I love scones more than muffins or cupcakes and your scones look fabulous. I had never had them with cream! I bet it makes it extra delicious!

    • Wow you are a true scone lover my friend – thank you so much for enjoying mine πŸ˜€
      And you simply must try it with cream – try extra delicious times 20 πŸ˜‰

      Choc Chip Uru

    • I am so glad you are also a scone lover (believe me if only British were allowed scones, there would be a riot ;))
      And cream cheese? never thought of it but sounds so yum πŸ˜€

      Choc Chip Uru

    • Thanks and don;t look at them! (otherwise I would have large glass bowls of whipped cream which may not have been such a bad thing I suppose ;))
      I love the cake as well, it is mouthwatering!
      And the luck is much appreciated my friend πŸ˜€

      Choc Chip Uru

  17. I love scones but not the hockey puck version. This looks wonderful & perfect timing since I’ve had a craving for them lately. Recipe I’ve concocted from a couple different ones uses sour cream & a little bit of heavy cream in them but this will be my go to recipe. Thanks for the tips but did you forget to put a “pip-pip” in the dialogue?

    • Haha I like that ‘the hockey puck version’ πŸ˜›
      I am so glad you enjoyed them my friend – I have heard about your sour cream and heavy cream method but I have always found milk keeps it softer πŸ™‚
      Thanks for using this now as your go-to πŸ˜€
      And you most certainly are right (evidence of why I need to actually go to England ;))

    I love this post, as my husband and I will be flying into London to backpack through Europe in just a couple of weeks. I hope to have some great photos and stories to share along the way!

    • Your description itself is making my mouth water – I think I need to go have a scone πŸ˜‰
      I am glad the pictures made you hungry too πŸ˜€
      And I wish I could have had a slice of that magnificent cake as well πŸ˜€

      Choc Chip Uru

    • You are awfully kind ‘m πŸ˜‰
      I am so glad you enjoyed them my friend – and I too would love to meet for a high tea someday πŸ˜€
      Thanks for such a sweet comment!

      Choc Chip Uru

    • Thank you so much πŸ˜€
      And what a wonderful addiction – I definitely trust your judgement then (though I must say my own addiction is quite constant :P)
      Wish I could have had you over for a tea party too!

    Hello my friend! I want to say that this article is awesome, nice written and come with almost all significant infos. I would like to peer extra posts like this .

  20. A_Boleyn says:

    Hello, fellow chocolate lover. Watch the skies, err… I mean my LJ, for a future chocolate cheesecake post. Not quite as stunning as the cake with blueberry curd you posted the link to but it tastes pretty good.

    As to today’s scone recipe, I really wish I had more of a fondness for sweets over savouries. I have to give away most of the desserts I make. The savouries get given away as well but it’s easier to find a good home for sweet baked goods.

    I’ve never had clotted cream. Can one make something similar tasting in the home kitchen?

    • Hmmm, a fellow chocolate lover ay? Definitely I shall be there (considering for me chocolate and cheesecake together is god ;)) – I am sure it will be just as wonderful πŸ˜€
      If you are having trouble giving away sweets, I welcome them with open arms, truly I am here for you πŸ˜› – if that is an issue, I am sure if you continue reading my posts I can convert you to the dark, err, I mean sweet side!
      And I did not make clotted cream at home due to its intensive method of preparation but simple whipped cream whose recipe is linked above – it happens in minutes and all you need is a kitchen mixer πŸ™‚

      Choc Chip Uru

    • Haha I am glad I got you in the mood πŸ˜€
      Thank you for saying so many nice things about them! And I agree wholeheartedly – what is a jewel without its bodyguards πŸ˜‰

      Choc Chip Uru

  21. I really love everything about this post. I love how fun it was to read, the tips, the recipe, and on and on. But my favorite thing about it is the idea you’ve given me to do a tea party with my oldest granddaughter. She’s 7 and just LOVES to cook and wants to me teach her how to cook some things she can make for her mom, dad, and little brother. Your scones are on the list, and then she and I can have a tea party together to enjoy them, practicing our English accents. She will LOVE it, and so will I. Thank you!

    • I am so glad you enjoyed so much in this post – thank you πŸ˜€
      And your idea is fabulous! I think a tea party complete with your granddaughter’s baking and that too being scones will just be too adorable and fun!
      Inspired my friend πŸ™‚

  22. Lovely Pantry says:

    Seriously! I need to make scones! Like, really!!! These look so simple and tasty to make. Love the dialogue by the way LOL! You really went in on the accent …”Oh Poppycock” and you’re instructions are on point. Thanks Uru!!!

    • You bet you do! They are fun, simple and can I just say RESULT πŸ˜‰
      I am glad you enjoyed the post my friend – after all what iS British talk without the word poppycock πŸ˜›
      I hope my tips are useful and have fun sconing it up πŸ˜€

  23. 1. I love the story. 2. Wow, that’s a big container of flour. 3. Scones, Yum! 4. I absolutely adore tea parties. I collect tea pots, and I’m having an Alice in Wonderland themed tea party for my bday this year. 4. These scones look incredibly moist, tender, and buttery. 5. What a cute tea cup. Seriously, just darling.

    • 1. Thanks πŸ˜€
      2. Haha every girl needs her flour (usually it is full :P)
      3. Lol I know right?4
      4. Awww that is so cool! I love Alice in Wonderland and hope you post on it πŸ™‚
      5. I am so glad you enjoyed these scones!
      6. Isn’t it too pretty – they were handcrafted and found at a stall πŸ˜€

      Choc Chip Uru

  24. I want to have tea with you! you are right – scones are easier than people think they are. unless you drop the pan on the floor… uncooked. Which is what I did last time. I baked them anyway, but floor impact did affect the texture. πŸ™‚

    • Haha dont worry – though I attempt to write British, let us not even go near my accent πŸ˜‰
      But trying is what makes it more fun πŸ˜€
      Thanks for enjoying the scones my friend!

  25. Kristina says:

    haha LOVE that we both did scones this week!! I always forget how much I like them πŸ™‚ Yours look delicious!! I’ll definitely trade you some of mine πŸ™‚

    • I know right? My family had been asking for ages that I make them and now that I have, I regret not doing so sooner πŸ˜›
      Thanks so much my friend, yours look so warm and wonderful too – we need to have a virtual tea party πŸ˜‰

    That was nice run up in your sharing on the scones and I am trilled to read that spicy went inside these scones. Looks lovely with the pairing you did.

  28. hotlyspiced says:

    That made me wish I was fire-side in Britain. What a great post. Love the scones and I agree – the recipe may be simple but to get them right requires a lot of skill xx

    • Wouldn’t mind joining you at the fireside – sounds like a plan with scones πŸ™‚
      I am glad you enjoyed them my friend and you are right once anyone knows the trick it is as simple as pie πŸ˜€

      Choc Chip Uru

    • It is sad when the results could be so much more – scones seem to be a major pain so I refuse to have anymore of it πŸ˜‰
      And I am glad the inner British was inspired in you πŸ˜€

  29. Tisa says:

    My gosh Uru- how entertaining are you! I’ve made scones before but never like this, Devonshire accent, theatrics, the whole nine yards -very ,very nice post my friend. β™₯ it !

  30. kaleighaubry says:

    You had me at the title. (And yes, I was using a British accent while I read it. In my head. It just sort of happens that way…) πŸ˜‰

  31. Just Baked says:

    Believe it or not, I had my first scone just one year ago. What had I been waiting for all that time, I do not know, because they are amazing!! Yours look perfectly light and delicious.

    • I think it is necessary my dear friend that you eat four to five batches to make up for the loss of scones! Thanks for enjoying them virtually my friend, I think the literal enjoyment is definitely overdue πŸ˜‰

      Choc Chip Uru

  32. O.K., you got me. I put on the English accent…as we American love hearing…and read your script! We adore scones and they always bring back memories of our times in England. I am definitely book marking it!

    • Now that sounds ike a college I dream of attending πŸ˜‰
      I am happy you liked the scones my friend (and every girl needs her diamonds? Nope her big box of flour :D)

  33. As I had just watched a video of Hugh Laurie (“House” farewell party), I was able to imagine him in your little scenario and thoroughly enjoyed it. You’re so clever with words. And with scones. I get so mad when bakeries and supermarkets here in the US slather scones with frosting or white sugar granules. The way you made them, the tops unadorned and served with clotted cream and jam, is the best! I’m going to grab hold of this recipe (with your adjustments) and never let go. I could say “good luck” with the exams, but I think you are so smart and well prepared that they’ll go well for you, CCU. See you after…

    • I adore Hugh Laurie! Great actor – and would love to see him perform a skit like this (though have you ever seen Jeeves and Wooster? I could definitely imagine him like this in it ;))
      Thank you for enjoying my scones my friend – I too understand the frustrations! Even in Australia, some scones are rock hard, so many given with canned frostings – it makes me want to ask where the love is in the food!!!
      But ignoring me, I appreciate your kind words in regard to my exams – I have to admit I am nervous since these are my first senior exams and in the holidays I have not overstudied (since I do not believe in it at all) – fingers crossed my friend and all you and the blogger community will be my good luck chamrs πŸ™‚

  34. Ramona says:

    Okay young lady… you just totally freaked with my mind. First of all those scones look Faaaaabulous!! Second… I really DID read all the dialoge with a british accent in my mind. I do as I am told. Well done my friend!! Now don’t ask me to cluck like a chicken… I just might do that too. πŸ™‚

    • Haha I always love your comments πŸ˜€
      Thank you so much! I am so thrilled you enjoyed them πŸ˜€
      And I am glad you used a british accent (I feel it comes naturally in a dialogue like that ;))
      Am I so bossy my friend? So influential πŸ˜› – If I am never would I exploit it upon a person as kind and wonderful as you :)… though cluck like chicken? Tempting πŸ˜‰

    • Doesn’t it just my dear? πŸ˜‰
      Thank you ever so much!
      Triple sifting has given me a lighter and softer crumb as the difference but in the overall scheme of things, it is certainly not the most necessary step when it comes to baking scones πŸ™‚

    We should do a swap! A scone of yours for a slice of cake of mine! πŸ˜‰ Thanks for featuring, I’m glad you enjoyed the cake. The scones look so utterly soft, I made them once and they didn’t turn out very well… I’ll definitely take note of the hints you’ve provided the next time! πŸ™‚

  41. Beautiful post, love high tea and the scones are perfection, they look so tender and moist and light. I am the queen of the rock hard heavy undigestable scone and biscuit. Must try this recipe.

    • I am so glad πŸ˜€
      And thank you for enjoy my scones and Jasline’s amazing cake!
      Your potluck sounds interesting and luckily is after my last exam so I will definitely check it out and get back to you – thanks πŸ™‚

      • Meant to say _ Marmite and Red Onion scones. And, also inspired by your blog, I’ve started Food Pages so that I can post up more foodie stuff! Watch this space! By the way, I love your comments – they always make me feel good πŸ™‚

      • Thank you so much πŸ˜€
        I am sure they would have tasted amazing – I have never even thought of savoury scones! It is definitely you, not I, who is inspiring for sure πŸ™‚
        A Food Page sounds like fabulous idea – believe you me, I will be exploring it thoroughly πŸ™‚
        And giving good comments is the only way to go my friend!

    • Thank you πŸ˜€
      I think a high tea fix is sometimes necessary – and I actually made normal whipped cream and dreamt it was clotted like they do in good ol’ England πŸ˜‰

    • I love how you describe them as magical – could not agree more πŸ˜€
      Thanks so much for enjoying the post too – context helps the appetite πŸ˜‰

    This something so good .. as a freshly baked scone with clotted cream and jam. And nothing more British – maybe Fish & Chips – have a great Sundayy

    • Thank you πŸ˜€ – Nothing beats it right when it is cold and wet! And yeah, I think a proper British meal would be fish and chips followed by scones and tea πŸ˜‰
      Have a great upcoming week!
