Celebrate Mom with These Mother’s Day Brunch Recipes

I mentioned to my 5-year-old that we should make Mother’s Day cards for his grandmothers and he was initially confused! “But Mother’s Day is about MOM, not grandma!” I reminded him that without his grandmas, we wouldn’t be here today, and that Grandma is my mom, and that she’d love to receive a special card from him!

Mother’s Day is a time to honor and celebrate the incredible women in our lives who have nurtured, supported, and loved us over the years.

My son says he wants to make me breakfast in bed, and that the menu includes omelettes. I hope he’s up to the task, because that sounds amazing!

Whether you’re planning a cozy gathering at home or a celebration with extended family, here are some things to consider when crafting the perfect Mother’s Day brunch.

First and foremost, remember that the heart of any Mother’s Day feast is celebrating the woman of the hour – mom! Take the time to make her feel cherished and pampered, whether it’s with heartfelt cards, thoughtful gifts, or simply being present in the moment with her.

When it comes to a brunch menu, opt for a combination of savory and sweet dishes to satisfy everyone’s palate.

For a simple gathering, that could look like just made-to-order omelettes and a batch of freshly baked scones. If you’re planning a more elaborate gathering, start with appetizers such as fresh fruit platters, cheese boards, and pastries and then move on to other dishes.

For the main course, consider serving a selection of brunch classics with a twist, such as savory quiches, fluffy omelets or tasty fritattas. Pair these with unique savory salads and fruit salads.

No brunch is complete without something sweet to indulge in. You could pick something up from our bakery such as our new Iced Strawberry Doughnuts or make one of our favorite recipes from our blog. Here are five recipes we love!

Dark Chocolate Cranberry Scones with Orange Drizzle: These tender scones are studded with tart cranberries and drizzled with a zesty orange glaze, perfect for satisfying mom’s sweet tooth.

Apple Pizza with Walnuts and Honey: A delightful twist on traditional pizza, this sweet and savory treat features thinly sliced apples, crunchy walnuts, and a drizzle of honey atop a crisp pizza crust. Make it simple by using store-bought naan bread as the crust.

Blueberry Lime Cake: Light and fluffy, this citrus-infused cake is studded with juicy blueberries and topped with a tangy lime glaze for a burst of refreshing flavor.

Creamy Blackberry Lemonade: Cool off with a refreshing glass of creamy blackberry lemonade, a combination of tart lemonade and sweet blackberry puree, perfect for sipping on a sunny day.

Triple Berry Jam Bars: These irresistible bars feature a buttery shortbread crust layered with homemade triple berry jam and crumbly oat topping, a delightful combination of sweet and tart flavors in every bite.

As you gather around the table to enjoy this special meal together, consider sharing some things that you’re thankful for about mom and celebrate her for the love and support she has given throughout the years. Cheers to mom and all the wonderful mothers out there!
