|Mum’s the word on the 26th March, and what better way to celebrate Mother’s Day than to deliver her a beautiful breakfast in bed? We know you’ll want to do better than toast and coffee, though. To help, we asked five of our favourite lifestyle and food bloggers to share winning recipes that will make mum feel extra-special on her day of bliss.|
Anca’s scones, garlic butter hearts, and cupcakes
Anca became a vegetarian nine years ago and set up her foodie blog so that she could share her delicious meat-free treats with others. As a huge fan of global eats, she has created a brilliant Taste the World map, so her followers can join her quest to discover the planet’s very best food! For Mother’s Day, she’s delivered a tempting trio of scones, garlic butter hearts, and cupcakes.
Deimante’s egg and chorizo breakfast skillet
Lifestyle and food blogger Deimante is well known for cooking up innovative gluten-free recipes, as well as for her epic and often spontaneous travel adventures. Influenced by the countries she visits, alongside her Lithuanian and Irish heritage, her food always has a unique twist. Discover her Mother’s Day recipe for a rather moreish egg and chorizo breakfast skillet.
Olivia’s white chocolate cheesecake loaf
Creative Writing graduate Olivia is based in Middlesbrough and makes notoriously good bakes, which she hopes will eventually lead to the opening of her own tea room. Her recipe for a divine raspberry and white chocolate cheesecake loaf was inspired by fruit salad, tea loaves and her mother’s obsession with chocolate. Check out the recipe over at The Northernist.
Rachel’s tomato chachouka
Rachel is the Southampton-based writer and photographer behind Illustrated Teacup, where you’ll find all things tea, tattoos, food and babies. She shares her adventures with husband Dann, baby Henry and her cat, Archimedes. Rachel chose a scrumptious chachouka recipe for us, which takes inspiration from her mother’s love of spice (and peppers) and is her go-to brunch meal.
Simone’s healthy fry-up
When Simone isn’t tied up with rugby games, chores, family visits and more rugby, she’s writing for her lifestyle blog. She loves reading, fashion, food and travel, and of course, her husband, son and daughter. Simone kept her Mother’s Day breakfast simple and Slimming World friendly, with coffee, fruit yoghurt and special, healthy take on a fry-up – check it out.
By now you should feel suitably confident that you can spoil the special mum in question with a delicious breakfast in bed. And if you really want to treat her and make it more of a brunch in bed, consider some new blackout blinds, so there’s no risk of her waking up early from that Mother’s Day lie-in.
