Profiteroles for Mother’s Day

It is Mother’s Day at the weekend here in the UK. A nice idea for a present is to make an afternoon tea.  We used to make afternoon teas to earn extra money and one of the favourite bakes that was asked for was profiteroles. They seem luxurious but they work out at less than £4 for 12.  We use the recipe from the ‘Bero’ book as these seem to puff up more than other recipes he has used in the past.

    I love scones! Savoury ones with onion chutney and cream cheese on…or fruit scones with jam. I love this idea of an afternoon tea.

      Scones are the favourite of Mr S. I like savoury ones and he likes sweet. Yes afternoon teas feel special even though they are just a bit of cake and a sandwich. It is the presentation that counts x
