Whether you want to indulge on an Afternoon Tea or perhaps you want to bake up a storm in the kitchen. What better way than to try a classic recipe, perhaps with a twist!
We may have even thrown in a refreshing cocktail idea, perfect for soaking up the end of the sun after work this evening.


Just take a second to look at this cake...need we say anymore!? This isn't just your average sponge, take a closer look and you'll notice the delicious blackberry curd and whipped sour cream filling.
The construction is simple, however it's not exactly a classic - more of a level up version!
To find out how to make this mouth watering sponge, head to The Sugar Hit.


This traditional dessert will never get old. You can easily adapt it to your taste, changing the fruit for example - however the true Eton Mess was made with strawberries, which is extremely convenient as this juicy berries are coming into season next month.
Find out how to make this classic dish with House Of Treats.


Create your own Afternoon Tea with the Lemon Thyme & Lemon Scones. Don't worry if you're thinking how can I make these for tonight? Scones are the easiest things to make, you can have a plate of warm scones in under half an hour!
Your only real decision is, will you opt for both jam and cream?

Combining two favourites, strawberry jam roll and trilfe. A lighter, fluffy sponge and all the delicious flavours of a tasty trifle.
This dish screams Summer to us, just remember as with any trifle this is best 48 hours after putting it together.
Why not try it yourself, get the recipe from The Ever Expanding Kitchen.

Ok so we couldn't give you a handful of recipe ideas and not slip in a much-loved Pimm's Cocktail - this recipe combines Pimm's, raspberries and elderflower.
Just remember when you finish work today and the sun is still shining once you're home, that it is always Pimm's o'clock!
