Time for afternoon tea

The invitation has been sent out so come on in and enjoy afternoon tea so it’s time to get ready. Su has put the kettle on so let’s get over to Su’s place for our blogshpere afternoon tea

I am doing well in my isolation as I am isolated most of the time out here in the Australian bush. Plenty to do to pass the time, never bored or lonely.

Last afternoon tea mention was made of an Aussie/NZ afternoon tea specialty, especially for kids and those kids at heart, the fabulous Fairy Bread. I was asked to make some for this weeks afternoon tea. Hope you are ready to enjoy a taste treat.

I didn’t make my Fairy Bread true to tradition as I don’t have soft white bread here, mine is made on sourdough, a bit hipster but there you go.

I hope the sugar hit isn’t too much

  1. Oh wow: you made fairy bread!! Thank you Brian. I was all set to make a slightly grown up version of chocolate crackles, but can’t get puffed millet and can’t quite bring myself to buy rice bubbles.

  2. Another earworm! How I loathed that song, so forgive me if I don’t play it.
    The close-up of the fairy bread is so lovely Brian, it would have been perfect for the pattern assignments. As for eating it – bread and sugar are no-nos for us at the moment, although I confess we have been sneaking a bit of bread into the diet lately.

    1. I can well understand Jude on all counts. I am not making Fairy Bread again, such a waste. I very thinly sliced most of the bread. I found you in the spam so glad I did a check this afternoon.


  3. I’ve never had Fairy bread and was feeling pretty ignorant after everyone’s comments. But I googled ‘fairy bread’ and see that this is an Aussie & NZ specialty. Now I don’t feel so bad πŸ™‚

    1. As a child you would have loved Fairy Bread. As an adult I don’t think the pure sugar hit would be appreciated. Not having Fairy Bread……I blame your parents πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€
