We all love a little bit of pampering once in a while, especially when it involves food! Combine two of our favourite things, breakfast and bed, for a Mother’s Day treat that will start off her special day in the best possible way. These three Mother’s Day breakfast recipes are simple enough to rustle up whilst mum is still snoozing upstairs, and are bursting with delicious flavours that will make her morning a little bit special.
For buttermilk pancakes, combine flour, icing sugar and orange rind in a bowl. Place egg yolks and buttermilk in a jug and whisk lightly to combine, then pour into flour mixture and whisk to combine. In a separate bowl, whisk egg whites until soft peaks form, then fold through flour mixture and set aside.
Heat half the vegetable oil and butter in a frying pan over medium heat. Add ¼ cupfuls of pancake mixture and cook in batches for 2-3 minutes on each side or until golden. Repeat with remaining oil, butter and mixture.
To serve: arrange the pancakes in stacks on serving plates. Top with a dollop of creme fraiche and arrange peaches and strawberries on top.
Prosciutto, Rocket and Fig Croissant
4 slices prosciutto
1 fig, sliced
Cut each croissant in half but don’t cut all the way through.
Add some rocket, then arrange two slices of prosciutto on each croissant.
Top with the slices of fig and drizzle with a little olive oil.
