Every afternoon, at half past three
I stop for a cup of tea
And sometimes I have someone join me
Which makes for a special tea
With a special tea treat!
A blackberry ricotta cake
The perfect cake filled with Farmer's Market blackberries
(frozen last summer -- sigh -- the last of them)
The recipe comes from one of my best recipe sources,
Mary from One Perfect Bite
A slice of cake
A cup of tea
It was a special tea
And I used my Old Paris
I love the bigger cups, the really deep saucers
(for 1860's china had deep saucers -- so you could pour your beverage into them to cool it off)
And the teapot.
A white china with gold trim
(one of my other loves!)
We ate an visited and sipped cups and cups of tea!
Mary's cake was made with raspberries but I made mine with blackberries.
Here is her recipe.
It's Thursday and my simple tea table I'm sharing with Susan at Between Naps On the Porch for Tablescape Thursday.
