Joining Kathleen @Cuisine Kathleen for her Let's Dish Tablescape Party with the theme challenge of birds, bees. flowers, trees
A quiet afternoon tea for one in the family room
with tiny, lemon flavored, flower-shaped teacakes
(the set/4 peacock plates and matching mug are 222 Fifth from HomeGoods; the linen napkins, milk glass votive, Wedgewood Crane dish are vintage pieces, the oil lamp a gift from my daughter, Jill before she was married; the lace tablecloth is a re-purposed curtain panel, peacock lamp a recent find during our March trip to Lancaster and the table and two chairs were given to me from daughter, Jamie several years ago)
peacock dish gifted to me from my cousin just recently
The teacakes were baked in a silicone baking mould from Birkmann Millefleur and though there is an English version recipe, I needed to use my kitchen scale to measure grams.
Lemon Flowers ( Fleurs au Citron)
source Birkmann Millefleur recipe booklet
60 g butter
60 g icing sugar (confectioners sugar)
60 g flour
grated peel of half an untreated lemon
Blend butter, icing sugar and grated lemon peel. Add the egg and beat until mixture becomes light and fluffy. Gradually sift in the flour and mix to a smooth dough. Fill the Millefleur mould and bake in oven at 170 C (350F) for about 25 minutes (I baked for 20 mins). Dust the cakes with a little icing sugar when they have cooled down or coat with icing made from 2 Tbs. icing sugar and a little lemon juice.
