Hitting the right spot with cream tea

View from The Bay Hotel in Coverack

I love holidaying in Cornwall. It’s a gorgeous place to visit. This time we stayed in the fabulous Bay Hotel  in a small village called Coverack on the Lizard peninsula where you wake up every morning to see the sea gently lapping on the shore.

There is a vast number of places to visit with beautiful scenery, interesting tin mines, attractive gardens and historic castles and of course you have to sample the Cornish cream teas. This generally consists of a scone, butter, jam and clotted cream, washed down with a pot of tea. It’s the perfect afternoon teatime treat.
I’m baking some Scones to remind me of the glorious Cornish cream teas, using Grandma Abson’s trusted recipe. The sultanas keep the scones moist and the scones have a perfect texture.
