This Sunday in the UK is Mothering Sunday, what could be nicer on her special day than making your Mum or Grandma a special gluten free afternoon tea.
My Mum, my sister and me
Here are some simple recipes for a classic afternoon tea you could prepare at home.
grain free bread

Choose a classic sandwich filling like egg and cress, cheese and tomato, ham or cucumber and cream cheese.
Cheese scones also work well for afternoon tea, here is a easy recipe Cheese scones . These can be made days before and frozen, defrost on sunday morning and re fresh in microwave for about 30 seconds. Serve with some delicious butter.
Now for something sweet!
Victoria sandwich cake
Grain free carrot cake

A classic afternoon tea wouldn’t be complete without a cream tea with simple gluten free plain scones served up with extra thick double or clotted cream and a low sugar strawberry jam like Delfour
If you have a 2 or 3 tier cake stand that would be ideal. Otherwise choose your prettiest plates and some nice serviettes
I hope this has given you some ideas to make this occasion something really special.
I would love to see your Mothers Day afternoon tea photos, Go on, have a go! I’m sure it will be very much appreciated.
Happy Mothering Sunday.
