Tea with Jane Austen
Tea with Jane Austen: Recipes inspired by her novels and letters | Pen Vogler
10 posts | 1 read | 4 to read
Enjoy a cup of tea and a slice of cake with one of the world's favorite novelists Inspired by the novels and letters of Jane Austen, this collection of cakes, bakes, and pastries is based on authentic recipes from the Recency era, which have been fully updated for modern-day cooks. In Jane Austen's day, tea and cakes were usually served after dinner, or to evening guests, but these rolls, buns, tarts, and biscuits will be equally welcome at breakfast, with mid-morning coffee, or for an English afternoon tea. Recipes featured in the book include: English Muffins, based on the muffins served with after-dinner tea in "Pride and Prejudice"; Buttered Apple Tart as offered by Mr. Woodhouse to Miss Bates in "Emma"; and Jumbles, inspired by the cookies enjoyed by Fanny in "Mansfield Park". From Plum Cake and Gingerbread to Ratafia Cakes and Sally Lunns "Tea with Jane Austen" has all the recipes you need to create the finest tea time treats, and the original recipes are given alongside, so you can compare them and appreciate modern time-savers such as dried yeast, and electric mixers all the more!

Thank you to everyone who joined in the #austeninaugust fun! Hosting this has been a blast! I'm already making a list for next year. If you've idea for a tag let me know. I'll leave you with one last pic from my visit to England last year. Tea and scones at Chawton House Library. 😚#janeiteforever

Libby1 I‘m sorry I didn‘t follow through this month. It was a great challenge! 1y
Crinoline_Laphroaig @Libby1 No Worries! Life. It happens. August is a quiet month for me. I have plenty of time to read. September is always busy, so I won't be posting much. 1y

spharo @Crinoline_Laphroaig Oh I love that it's Pride and Prejudice themed!! Does it take milk well with the cranberry? 2y
Crinoline_Laphroaig @spharo Milk just didn't sound good with cranberry so I drank it without. 2y

spharo @Crinoline_Laphroaig That was my first thought when I saw the cranberry. It must be really good to have on its own! 2y

@Gissy It's all so wonderful, I just want to cry! You chose such beautiful, thoughtful gifts, and I can't even say how much I love it all! ❤️❤️❤️
The new editions of Jane Austen, the socks, 2 lovely prints - JA and PR! It is so special to receive items representing PR - I love it! The chocolate looks amazing! My JA tote, my lovely mug, and my very first book sleeve! 😍😍 I'm so excited to get the Christmas themed British Mysteries! ❤️(con'd)

mabell I couldn't even get all my lovely gifts in the photo! Tea with Jane Austen, the Birthday book and journal! 😍 Thank you so much!! ❤️❤️❤️ #janeaustenswap 2y

Kalalalatja Wonderful! 2y
Gissy I'm so happy you liked everything. You said owned already some JA editions but didn't mention the vintage classic edition. I found their covers so pretty. I tried to found a booksleeve more related with JA but I didn't find it if I see one I will send you one. I was so nervous because as you know this was first experience with this author. I always like to send something from PR as a cultural exchange. 2y
mabell @Gissy I love the booksleeve! It is just perfect for JA! I'm having fun trying it on all my books! 😂The covers of the JA editions are so lovely, and I didn't have them! ❤️I love the cultural exchange idea! I'm so happy, I just keep looking at my goodies! 😁 2y
Gissy @mabell Me too! ☺️I was in beauty salón doing my nails and I was telling everyone about the books and goodies! I don't know which one I will read first?I'm reading right now Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine. 2y
mabell @Gissy Are you enjoying Eleanor? I noticed it was very popular on Litsy. 2y
mabell @erzascarletbookgasm @sprainedbrain @Kalalalatja I couldn't be happier!! I love it all! ❤️❤️❤️ 2y
Gissy @mabell I'm still in the first chapters but I'm enjoying it. I identify with her in odd social responses. I guess this reading hobby does not allow us to be often with human beings☺️Those parts are so funny.But it seems Eleanor went through a traumatic experience during childhood that made her being like that. I found some expressions of loneliness well used to describe this feeling in persons like Eleonor, existentialist descriptions? 2y
Gissy @mabell so sad in those expressions😢I still don't know what happened to Eleanor. Her mother and their relationship is pretty dysfunctional. I don't know how these mix of feelings in this uncommon complicated character will end in this novel. 2y
mabell @Gissy It sounds very sad - like a difficult story to read in spite of the humor. 2y
Gissy @mabell I think so. I hope I can finish it today. 2y
mabell @Gissy I hope you end up enjoying it! I can't read those type of novels; I get too sad. I stick to my "happy" murder mysteries ? 2y
JenlovesJT47 Eleanor is great! Really loved that book! 2y
LeahBergen What lovely gifts! 💕 2y
Gissy @LeahBergen Than you! Looking for the time to read the books. Im trying this year to read more books from the ones I received from different swaps. They are amazing. I had collected few and I adore them since they have a sentimental meaning, Litsy swaps 😌 @JenlovesJT47 Trying to finish this novel today. I had laughed reading it but also it has very sad parts😔 2y

For my 100 P&P Party, I bought Jane Austen tea, from Bingley's!!! The four teas: Mr Darcy, Lizzie, Longbourn, and Sweet Jane, came in the tea "book" box, and I received a complimentary fifth Lydia tea. Very good and added to the festivities! ☺ You can also see some of the collection too!
