As you may have noticed a lot of my posts are for savoury recipes. I try to stay away from sweet stuff because if I make whatever it is I’ll end up eating it all myself and ruin my eternal quest to be skinny 🙂 It hasn’t really worked, I should just makes the cakes and bloody well enjoy them. Catherine has kindly shared some of her favourite teacakes with me so I’m posting them for you all to try and enjoy.
