Cheese & Onion Stuffed Rolls

These light stuffed rolls are filled with cheese and onion and make the perfect accompaniment to a bowl of soup!

Cheese Scones

Savoury cheese scones make a wonderful light snack or supper and are so easy to make.


Home-made crumpets are less doughy and not as heavy as shop-bought crumpets. Serve them lightly toasted, oozing with butter.

English Muffins

English Muffin is another British bread cooked on a hot surface rather than in an oven. Split in half, toast, spread with butter and top with jam, cheese or a poached egg.

English Teacakes

These traditional lightly-spiced fruit buns are not a cake at all but still go wonderfully well with a nice cup of tea.
