Raisin Scones with Strawberry Jam

Raisin Scones with Strawberry Jam

I’m going to admit it – one of the best things about being British is undoubtedly afternoon cream tea. An age old tradition that we could never give up – after all can you really beat warm scone fresh from the oven smothered in your favourite jam and lashings of cream? (Or in this case COYO – yes I found yet another use for it!!!)

Cream tea was always a staple of our holiday when I was growing up. It sure wasn’t a holiday until my Dad had found a café that did a perfect cream tea – and in England that is easily enough done.

One of the most memorable for me was a lovely little backroom farmyard cafe set off the costal path in Dorset.

We stumble across it by accident on one of our walks and spent a lovely half hour cosy and warm, whilst it spat with rain outside, in their outside extension with cream tea and hot chocolate – I thought I was in heaven.

When we returned to the cottage we saw a previous visitor had written in the book that this was the best place in England for afternoon tea – I think we all agreed!

So you can see why I was so keen to do a healthy version of this traditional English treat. I promise that you won’t be disappointed – even more delish than the original but healthy as well! Of course I used my favourite sugar free jam - Dalfour – the strawberry one this time – plus a spoonful of COYO – and you’re in cream tea heaven.

So whip up a batch of these, your favourite free from hot chocolate or fruit tea and relax, sit back and enjoy the afternoon. :)
