Offer Mom a touch of sweetness to celebrate Mother’s Day.
Mother’s Day is just around the corner and we’re heating up the oven! Baked goods make for great gifts and spoiling mom with a sweet treat is just another way to show how much you care. This year, we’re repaying the women in our lives the best way we know how– with sweet-tasting recipes!
Brunch is a Mother’s Day must, but there’s more than pancakes and bacon to this late-morning tradition. We absolutely love this strawberry breakfast loaf – it’s made even more delicious with jams and nut butters! If you’re feeling truly decadent, turn this fruity loaf into delicious French toast and add a drizzle of honey for an extra touch of sweetness.
Bake with the seasons
Buying fruit that is in season will help ensure you get the best quality produce and also make it easier to buy local. Mid-spring is the perfect time to pull out your rhubarb recipes, like roasted ginger and rhubarb upside down cake. Mom will appreciate this out-of-the-box creation and you can repurpose the recipe as seasons change – peach upside down cake, anyone? Just choose another fruit alternative and this recipe can easily adjust to each season.
Add some colour
To personalize a go-to dessert like a vanilla cake and classic butter cream frosting, use Club House food colours. Mother’s Day is all about making your mom feel special and personalizing baked goods are a great way to do that! These red velvet brownies have all the decadent taste of fudge, with a feminine touch of pink frosting.
Who says baked goods have to be sweet? These savoury parmesan shortbreads are perfect as a pre-dinner nibble or to accompany a salad. You can also add a gourmet onion jam for a sweet and savoury contrast or serve with your next charcuterie board!
Wrap it up
Baked goods are great for gifting, whether they’re for the special woman in your life or a dinner host. Personalizing your finished product is the final step for gifting on Mother’s Day. We love stacking cookies and tying them with ribbon or twine. For brownies and squares, decorative tins are perfect for transporting and offer two gifts in one, the baked goods and reusable tin!
Whether you opt for a zesty cookie or a decadent cake, the most important thing on Mother’s Day is to keep mom out of the kitchen. Offer to host so the women in your family can enjoy the day…and indulge their sweet tooth!
