Cakes safely in the oven, we took a little break over a cuppa to sample some of Mary Ann’s freshly baked scones and homemade damson jam, I genuinely don’t think I’ve ever tasted scones like it in my life, they literally melted in your mouth. So good in fact many of my fellow class attendees asked for her recipe which she was happy to share.
