As part of the Enjoy Beccles More launch, we are appealing to our budding bakers and culinary wizards to share some of their favourite cakes and dishes.

Our new Secrets from my Kitchen feature is your chance to show off your cookery talents.

Whether it’s a recipe handed down through generations of your family, your secret ingredient to make the perfect cake or just a recipe you always enjoy, we want to hear them all.

Kicking us off is Jackie Ronie, owner of Ronie’s cafe and takeaway in Hungate, Beccles, with her fruit scone recipe.

She said: “I have made these for many years for the cafe. I usually do half natural yoghurt and half the milk as it makes a nicer flavour and texture. I hope you enjoy.”
