Have you all remembered what day it is on Sunday Bread Heads? It’s Mother’s Day! Here at Baker Street we think mums deserve extra spoiling this year, so we’ve put together some Mother’s Day recipe ideas for you to try at home to really show your mums how much you love them.
L’oeuf of Love
Breakfast in bed is an absolute must on Mother’s Day, and nothing says ‘I love you’ quite like a heart-shaped egg on toast! This recipe is super simple, but it is sure to put a smile on mum’s face.
All you have to do is butter both sides of your Baker Street Sliced Loaf and cut a heart-shaped hole in the centre. Place both bits of bread into a pan and toast to perfection on one side. Then, flip the bread over and crack an egg into the heart-shaped hole. Cook until the egg has set, and then serve with the heart-shaped cut out and a big smile on your face. It’s as easy as that!
Afternoon Tea Toast
Seeing as we can’t take our mums out for afternoon tea this year, bring the afternoon tea to her! Using a slice of from one of our Baker Street Sliced Loaves, toast it and smother it with clotted cream and mum’s favourite jam flavour (in whichever order you prefer!). Serve with a nice cuppa or maybe even some bubbly if you’re feeling fancy.
White Chocolate and Raspberry Bread and Butter Pudding
This indulgent pud is as good as it sounds and twice as good as it looks! Big thanks to @fatfoodclub for concocting this fabulous recipe using our Baker Street Jumbo Hot Dog Rolls, it certainly is the perfect Mother’s Day recipe.
