For the first time since I started work, I had a day off today! My company is moving office so we were given the day off and I took the opportunity to escape to Somerset for a long weekend. We’re putting up the decorations this weekend and it’s the Christmas market in Frome on Sunday so I thought I’d get into the festive spirit by baking some Christmas cupcakes.
Whilst I’m looking for a job, I regularly pop to London for interviews and stay with my boyfriend. I wanted to take him something and, as he’s from Yorkshire and loves tea, I decided to make him some Yorkshire tea bread! Tea bread is like a normal fruit cake but tea infused and not as rich. It’s the perfect afternoon pick me up, sliced, spread with butter and (unsurprisingly) is perfectly paired with a cup of tea. Luckily the recipe makes two loaves so I could leave one behind for my dad to keep him happy!
