I found out at the last minute I would be having some family come by for tea tomorrow, so I immediately panicked. I knew there was very little I could pull out and make at the last minute, and that my refrigerator had become stocked with restraurant take away cartons and beer bottles during my recent absence.
So I did what I do best......
I had flour, milk, butter, eggs, lemons, salt, some sugar and a small amount of cream.....
The ingredients kept going through my mind, until voila!
