Whether you are having a street party or a back garden gathering these 4 simple recipes are certain to go down a treat: classically British party food with a little Platinum Jubilee twist!
Double cheese straws – Mozzarella, parmesan, red pesto and pastry: a tasty twist on the classic!
A simple, family recipe that definitely has a place at my Jubilee celebration!
The perfect addition to any Jubilee table and the perfect lunchbox treat or after-school snack for hungry children: the ultimate finger-food!
Easy coronation chicken – No Jubilee party would be complete without this classic dish.
The original recipe dates back to 1953 when the recipe “Poulet Reine Elizabeth” was created by renowned florist Constance Spry and cordon bleu chef Rosemary Hume who were catering for a banquet to celebrate the coronation of Elizabeth II
This version is much simpler than the original, but still contains those classic flavours and textures.
Delicious served in a sandwich, as a baked potato topper or on a salad.
Cheese, bacon and onion scones – Scones are quintessentially British and so are cheddar and bacon so why not combine them for this tasty treat.
These scones have definitely earned a place on my jubilee table and are another of my simple, family recipes that make a delicious lunchbox treat or after-school snack (I often make a batch and freeze them).
They are delicious served warm with some salted butter or a simple chutney.
My Elizabeth sponge cake – A cake that is fit for a Queen and my mum’s foolproof, simple cake recipe!
My mum is the baker in the family: I readily admit that her cakes are better than mine – she has that magic touch! But this recipe (her recipe) is foolproof – it works every time!
I usually just sprinkle my Victoria sponges with icing sugar but the photo shows how I decorated it for the Platinum Jubilee: I made a vanilla buttercream and then arranged some fruit to resemble the union flag.
