start my day with a cup of coffee and end it with a cup of tea. Drink coffee in the morning it good for me, it will give me an energy and makes me feel like energiser bunny, but when I feel blue and tired I always longing for a cup of tea. It will makes me feel calm and ease all my pain. Different type of tea will give a different mood and sensation. Sitting by the window with my hands wrapped around a cup of English breakfast, no sugar with a dash of milk…will transform me to a small cottage in England.

Welsh cake are tea-time treat from Wales, it made from flour, sultanas, and some spices like nutmeg and cinnamon. It easy to make, you can use oven or simply use cast iron griddle. Traditionally Welsh cakes are served hot or cold with dusted with caster sugar, but I made some honey cream and eat it with sliced fresh strawberries.
Welsh Cakes Recipe – adapted from Jamie Oliver

- 100 g butter
- 50 g sultanas
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
