Traditional English Cream Tea with an American Twist
The excitement is building for the wedding of the season, as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle prepare to say their ‘I Do’s’.
All eyes will be on Windsor on Saturday 19th May, with family gatherings and tea parties across the country and around the globe to watch the day unfold. We are suggesting the perfect way to celebrate the Royal Wedding, with a traditional English Cream Tea but with an American twist!
A well-loved British tradition, afternoon tea is a daily ritual for the Queen and dates back to the Victorian era. Usually celebrated between 3pm and 5pm, why not celebrate the Royal Wedding with a quirky twist on the usual jam and clotted cream pairing, with a nod to the American royal bride-to-be.
Taking the well-loved American peanut butter and jelly sandwich and giving it an afternoon tea style makeover, our hand-made and freshly baked Traditional Plain and Fruit Scone recipes are well-loved favourites and work perfectly as a base to the P&B pairing.
Head Baker Jason Jobling, commented: “At Warrens Bakery we need no excuse to celebrate, with the Royal Wedding we jumped at the chance to produce this great British and American mashup with a Cornish twist. It might get a Marmite reaction; however, the bakery team has given it a try and it gets the thumbs up from us.”
Using Cornish butter and butter milk from Rodda’s and Trewithen Dairies and Cornish Sea Salt in their Salted Caramel scones, the bakery is proud to support many other Cornish brands.
Handmade in Cornwall, Freda’s Peanut Butter with Cornish Sea Salt compliments Boddington’s Berries Strawberry Jam for a tasty topping. “What a lovely treat to celebrate the Royal wedding. A Warren’s Bakery Traditional Scone with Freda’s Cornish Sea Salt Peanut Butter and Boddingtons Jam. Like the Royal couple, some things are just made for each other.” Lisa Newsham, Founder of Freda’s.
