The Best Classic British Treats To Make This Jubilee Weekend
Whether you’ve got a street party to attend and don’t want to come empty-handed or simply up for celebrating at home, here are our five favourite classic British sweet treats to make this Jubilee bank holiday.
Ah, scones — there are few foods out there more sacred to Brits than these delicious, warm, fluffy delights. They’re easy to make, quick to whip up and the reward is immense, so if there’s one thing you make this weekend, let them be these. Top liberally with vegan cream (recipe included!) and your favourite jam.
Another afternoon tea staple, lemon drizzle cake is one of those treats that you forget just how much you love until you have that first bite. This one is made up of a soft, light sponge, a sharp lemon syrup glaze, ad topped with sweet icing. It’s spring sunshine wrapped up in an extremely delicious cake.
Sticky, sweet, soft gooey — these are the things we look for in a top quality sticky toffee pudding, so it's good that this recipe is all of these things, and then some. Add the toffee sauce generously and add a scoop of ice cream or a hefty drizzle of vegan creamy for extra richness.
This recipe is proof that making fantastic vegan recipes can use the most unlikely ingredients — in this case, a can of humble chickpeas. This Eton mess recipe makes soft, melt-in-your-mouth meringue, and tastes perfectly sweet as well as fresh thanks to the mint.
This bake takes a little more time, so for any lovers of baking that would like to practice some more techniques, this is the recipe for you. Butter pastry, sharp jam and sweet, nutty frangipane collide to make this decadent bake the show-stopper and centrepiece for you Jubilee celebrations.
