Serve Mum an extra-special breakfast in bed with a glass of pink fizz or a red berry smoothie

From delicate lace pancakes (you'll see what we mean!) to homemade pink grapefruit jam, these Mother's Day breakfasts might make Mum think she's still dreaming!

 

1. Baked egg Florentine

A coddled egg makes a lovely "thank you" for all Mum's cuddles over the past year. Serve alongside heart-shaped toast and a dollop of ready-made hollandaise for an extra-special treat.

2. Breakfast burrito

Be adventurous and make your own tortillas (Mum will be impressed) or keep things simple and buy them ready-made with your choice of fillings – we love flaked sweet chilli salmon fillets with fresh lettuce, sour cream and dill.

5. Honeyed pink grapefruit marmalade

This isn't just any old marmalade. It's a mama-rmalade! And this pink grapefruit recipe is an absolute gem. Store in sterilised jam jars, seal, then cover the lid with a circle of gingham fabric secured with an elastic band.

6. Girly granola

Quite possibly the loveliest-looking granola we've ever seen! Mix rolled oats, sunflower and hemp seeds together then coat with a whizzed-up blend of cooked beetroot, dates and coconut oil. Once baked, serve with fresh berries, a drizzle of honey and splash of cold milk.

7. Breakfast parfait

8. Chai hot chocolate

Spring mornings can be a bit chilly, but we'd drink this even on a hot day! No ordinary hot chocolate, this one's made with creamy almond milk (use oat milk if you prefer) and your own DIY chai spice mix – which incidentally would make a great gift too.

9. Stuffed croissant

Ta-dah! Regale Mum with a tray laden with tasty morsels such as an all-butter croissant stuffed with scrambled eggs, goats' cheese and rocket, all-in-one egg toast and a bright purple berry smoothie. It's actually all very easy but shhh ... mum's the word!
