Homemade cakes, homemade muffins and tarts would have been a special treat for the old farmer and his family who lived in Coldharbour Cottage many years ago. Not only would they have made jams, chutnies and preserves but with fresh eggs (from the chickens in the yard) and fresh milk (from the cows) there would be lots of homemade cakes and buns. This time of year in England we have Hot X Buns and chocolate Easter Eggs but the guests staying in the cottage this week made us some lovely muffins. We could sell them (!) but we ate them instead and they were delicious – thank you to Axel and family from Essen!
Wishing you all a very Happy Easter.
