Take a walk in Blue Bell Woods listen to the sounds around you, of bird song and bees. Smell the flowers and the scent of Spring in the air. Every year is a new beginning and every day a blessing

My Favourite English Desserts.................

Well people always seem to enjoy food blogs. I was saying in the earlier one that England is perceived by many to have bland food. I have no idea how or why this has been perpetuated. The food can be fantastic and I just can not believe these people went to an English home or a good restaurant. In any case I will show some of my favourite desserts and treats here.
One of the best things to come out of the British Isles is it's cream. Devon cream or clotted cream. One wonderful dessert is meringue with fresh clotted cream and rasberries or strawberries.

Puddings and cakes are popular and unique ones from ages past are still popular today.. Victoria sponge is a really simple recipe with fresh cream and preserves inside, just dusted with powdered sugar. Spotted Dick is a steamed pudding with raisins and topped with custard.

Oh my, you have tickled my taste buds to no end!! I, too, can't understand how English fare could be considered bland. I was always bowled over by the dessert selections on my visits - such a quandary to pick just one. My travel partner and I would by two and then split them so we could savor both.
