Zoom in for coffee and a chat. 

Prior to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Braughing coffee mornings in the Old Boys School, funded by Braughing Parish Council, were held every Tuesday morning.

We are Back

And now we are back in a virtual format via Zoom. The first get-together was  held on Thursday 5 November and was so successful that they will continue every Thursday from 11.00-12.00.  

Just bring your favourite drink, cake and yourselves and take the opportunity to catch-up with others in the village for a chat and friendship from the comfort of your own home. Every month we will publish a favourite recipe discussed at the coffee morning - see below.

Lotte's Crunchy Peanut Butter Cookies



  1. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4 and line 2 large baking trays with baking parchment.
  2. Measure the peanut butter and sugar into a bowl. Add ¼ tsp fine table salt and mix well with a wooden spoon. Add the egg and mix again until the mixture forms a dough.
  3. Break off cherry tomato sized chunks of dough and place, well spaced apart, on the trays. Press the cookies down with the back of a fork to squash them a little.
  4. Bake for 12 mins, until golden around the edges and paler in the centre. Cool on the trays for 10 mins, then transfer to a wire rack and cool completely. Store in a cookie jar for up to 3 days.
