Ten quintessentially English recipes for St. George’s Day


Victoria sponge

Next week, April 23rd,  is St. George’s day, a day to remember England’s patron saint. So, we thought it would be fun and tasty to round up some traditionally English recipes to help us celebrate.

  • A very traditional meal but with a twist is Maison Cupcake’s toad in the hole with bramley apples and bratwurst. It looks amazing.
  • Earl Grey tea is quintessentially English so why not mix things up and make Earl Grey biscuits with a lemon drizzle, from Emily’s Recipes and Reviews.
  • It’s not easy being greedy has made a delicious Lancashire hotpot to produce a hearty and very British dish.
  • One of the ultimate comfort puddings has got to be rice pudding, skin n’ all so thanks Mummy Constant for this creamy pud!
  • A Sunday roast is usually on our menu and my favourite is roast beef with all the trimmings. Freycob shares her Yorkshire pudding recipe that most definitely does not have a soggy bottom.
  • Treacle tart? Ooo yes please, I can have my treacle in any form but The Hedge Combers cardamon scented treacle tart sounds heavenly. The big question is custard or cream?
  • Fridays are not the same without fish and chips. Blue Bear Wood’s take on them though, mackerel fish and chips, makes a tasty change.
  • A traditional afternoon tea always has scones, The Free From Fairy shows us how to make traditional ones that are gluten free and with a dairy free option, just don’t forget to stock up on the strawberry jam. Mmmm.
  • Another afternoon tea staple is of course the good old Victoria sandwich, named after Queen Victoria. My mouth is watering at the thought of biting into Utterly Scrummy Food For Families’ lavender and strawberry Victoria sponge.
  • Finally, one of Britain’s favourite dishes is the apple crumble, but The Purple Pumpkin Blog’s spiced rhubarb and apple crumble would certainly make my family happy.

So You Know...

As you've likely heard and seen, there's an increasing focus on the authenticity of follower growth and engagement on social platforms across the Influencer Marketing community. The platforms themselves have taken measures to deter inauthentic activity and brands now more closely scrutinise the audiences of the influencers with whom they are partnering.

The Flea Network has implemented a system that will detect abnormal spikes in following and engagement, and flag these properties. Of course, such spikes can often be attributed to viral posts or high-profile brands that bring greater exposure to some content.

If one of your social accounts is flagged by our system without an obvious reason, we may reach out to you for assistance in understanding it. If we find any influencer has artificially inflated their audience size or engagement using paid acquisition or automated, third-party tools, we will remove them permanently from our influencer community.

Feel free to reach out to us at bloggers@fleaenterprises.com with any questions or comments.

Thank you!
