Lemon, thyme & poppy seed cupcakes

Lemon and poppy seeds are a well-known combination, and these cupcakes add a zesty flair to any tea table or picnic basket. The fresh thyme gives a lovely botanical flavour to the cupcakes, making them a little more sophisticated. The ratio of lemon juice to icing sugar adds just enough acidity to the recipe to balance out the sweetness and rounds the cakes off beautifully.

Warm, homemade bread with butter melting into it and a dollop of chunky apricot jam always bring back delightful memories. There is something comforting about freshly baked bread, which is difficult to describe.
