Afternoon Tea

As a treat for my wife and her friends on their return from a bead fair I put together a semi-traditional afternoon tea.
Smoked salmon on blinis
Smoked salmon, cream cheese and cucumber on home-made rye-bread with caraway and coriander seeds
Stilton scones
Fruit scones
Double chocolate muffins

Not much left at the end so must have been a sucess!

Not made scones since  was in Home Economics 30 odd years ago and I was very happy with the results very light with a good texture.


  1. Hi Alan,

    I love the combination of smoked salmon with cream cheese. I also enjoy making scones.

    Rye bread sounds great. There is something wonderful about home-baked breads. I love working the different doughs. I haven't tried my hand at rye bread yet, but it's on my to-do list.

    Glad your meal was a success, I look forward to reading more of your posts.

    Happy Eating :-)

  2. Nice! You must have scored some serious points!
