On Thursday this week, it was the official day for Australia's Biggest Morning Tea, the fundraiser for the Australian Cancer Council. Our work hosted a morning tea on the day, and we had a smashing turnout, raising $660 all up.
I knew lots of other people were bringing baked sweets, so I mainly steered clear of those for my contribution. Instead, to even up the offerings, I bought party pies and sausage rolls, and made scones with jam and cream. Most people like these salt of the earth Aussie favourites, so I figured they wouldn't go to waste.
To make the scones, I used Margaret Fulton's scone recipe, which you can find here. You can watch Margaret herself make them here.
Here is a shot of our morning tea nearly all set up, but before it started:
And here are the tables of goodies - you can see some of my scones at the back of the first table (all made up for ease of eating):
Two of my favourite dishes were Elena's salted caramel and popcorn cheesecake:
and Wayne's sticky date pudding with butterscotch sauce:
Here is an action shot of our morning tea - it was a very pleasing turnout:
If you are in Australia, there is still time to host your own Biggest Morning Tea (before the end of June) - visit the Australia's Biggest Morning Tea website to register.
