There’s nothing like cooking breakfast for a loved one to start off their day just right; whether it’s for Mom on Mother’s Day, Dad or Father’s day, or for your partner- for no reason other than because food is the way to their heart. Breakfast sure has come along way since bland cereal or dry toast, with ever creative ways to spice it up- here come a few ideas to give someone special in your life a delicious morning surprise.
To make these you will need the following ingredients:
- Baking Powder
- Plain Flour
- Nuts (almond or pecan)
- Fruits (raspberries, blueberries or blackberries)
These are suggested toppings yet if you prefer something else on your pancakes, by all means, go to town! Perhaps try some chocolate or lemon, cream, maple syrup, or caramelized bacon? To make the pancakes, you’ll need to whisk the eggs and milk together until the mix becomes frothy and light. (300ml of milk and 1 egg will do for about pancakes 8 small pancakes.) Next, sieve two teaspoons of baking powder, 230g of flour and one dessert spoon of sugar into the mix and keep whisking all together. After this, grease your pan and place on a medium heat, you can use a ladle to scoop and tip the batter mix into the pan, then use a spatula to adjust the shape in roundness! When it starts bubbling flip the pancake using your pan or a spatula. Add the toppings after to your taste.
There’s certainly something romantic about impressing your loved one with your pancake flipping skills (if all goes well)! Why not add fresh flowers and quaint gifts over coffee for a perfect birthday morning celebration.
If you like how the Brits do things, breakfast-wise, this hearty start to your day will be sure to give your loved one a real indulgent treat. You’ll need sausages, eggs, mushrooms, tomatoes, spinach, and some of your favourite bread. You can cook all of your ingredients by frying them, just make sure you start with your sausages first, as these will take 10-15 mins, whereas your tomatoes, mushrooms and spinach will take only between 3-5 minutes. The bread can be simply cut and toasted. If you prefer your eggs poached, bring a pan of water to a simmer then stir the water to create a whirlpool. Keep the heat low and cook for 3-4 minutes , not forgetting to add a drop of vinegar to the water to help the process. Combining this with some Father’s Day gifts would make for the perfect day for many Dads out there!
If you would prefer to give your loved one more of a healthy vibe, why not opt for some effortless avocado toast. This is a real easy and nutritious morning meal, simply mash your avocado, scramble some eggs and add a little salad, for instance, rocket or spring onion. Season with a bit of salt and pepper or even paprika (perfect with eggs) if you’re feeling a little adventurous!
