Tesco’s Real Food Afternoon Tea Baking & Recipe Challenge

I loved the day I spent learning to cook Italian at Food at 52.

So I didn’t hesitate to accept an invitation from Tesco to an evening of baking sweet afternoon tea treats there.

The special class was organised as an introduction to the Tesco Real Food Baking Challenge, which invites home bakers to submit their favourite recipes for the chance to win a bread machine. (Personally, I think you can make great bread easily and quickly without a machine, and it’s usually much nicer, but your mileage may vary).

It was a pleasure to return to this quirky and welcoming school and to say hello again to owners John and Emily, class assistant Jacqui and that crazy suit of armour in the upstairs living room!

The nine invited bloggers were split into two groups, each group making three recipes together, which we then shared around the huge table afterwards.

Our group made scones, mini bakewell tarts and a Victoria sponge. All were simple, straightforward and so much more delicious than shop-bought. Novice home cooks are often scared of baking but even with recent price rises, ingredients aren’t that expensive and it doesn’t take much practice to gain skills and confidence.

    Yes I think so, the other group made chocolate cherry cupcakes, pretty fruit tarts and a shortbread with salted caramel and chocolate (not pictured as hadn’t set yet).
