Everything stops for Tea (and biscuits).

What snack do you like with your cuppa (coffee/tea?)?


I don’t think that a cup of tea or coffee is complete without a small treat. And that’s before we’ve got on to the big question of whether or not to dunk.

I suspect that’s a whole new topic.



There’s nothing that I wouldn’t try with a cup of tea or coffee but I do have my favourites. Sadly, many of the ones I remember from my youth are no longer available. So I have to make do with what I can get.

Fortunately, I’ve been a home baker for far longer than I’ve been a writer. In my time, I’ve found and tried many recipes for snacks and treats.

I used to make a lot of biscuits, things like Custard Creams and Chocolate Cookies. Even the odd Millionaires Shortbread.



I don’t make so many of them these days.

Unless the grandchildren are coming to visit.

But I do make a batch of Sourdough Digestives every month or so. It’s not because a batch lasts for a month but more to do with how quickly we eat them if they’re there.😋


Here’s the recipe.

and the result,


I’m afraid you’ll have to excuse me, I feel a cup of something coming on.

Until next time.

    My (English) hubby likes digestive biscuits with his tea. I prefer something homemade like a chocolate chip banana muffin. Thanks for the recipe.

      You’re welcome. I prefer the sourdough version to the mass produced, although I’ll never turn one down. 🙂

      I prefer my own (additive free) versions. They’re not difficult to make.
