Father's Day Tea

There's no doubt about it, my husband loves scones and mostly hot from the oven without butter or jam.
When my dad was alive he liked them too only at home we called them tea biscuits.  My mother made hers plain but I always add currants and occasionally dried cranberries.
We've already celebrated Father's Day with family on account of work schedules and I made the dessert to have at our daughter's place.
Blueberry coffee cake with fresh blueberries and cool whip on top.  We had steaming mugs of coffee with our dessert.
Our girls with hubby.
I'm linking with Sandi at Rose Chintz Cottage for Tea Time Tuesday with a special celebration in honour of Father's Day this week.   I hope you'll join us and visit the blogs participating.


  1. What a lovely family, great Father's Day dessert.

  8. Good afternoon Judith,
    Your tea post today is just wonderful and your coffee cake looks delicious as do the scones.
    I loved seeing your hubby and daughters. What a lovely family you have!
    Scones were always biscuits at my mother's house too. When I make them plain, I call them tea biscuits, and I call them scones when I add dried fruit with sugar on top. I always enjoyed butter and molasses on mine too but I also like honey or jam. That's the nice thing about a biscuit or scone, you can spread almost anything on them.
    Thank you for joining me for a special Father's Day Tea. Hope your week is delightful in every way.
