Mother's day is the day that we set aside to honor mom and thank her for all she does for us. Mother's day usually starts with breakfast in bed and these Mother's Day breakfast recipes will help you start her day right.
Keep It Kid Friendly
Kids love to help with the cooking, especially when it's for mom. So unless mom will settle for nothing less than eggs benedict with fresh home-made hollandaise sauce and perfectly poached eggs, something I'm sure any dad could whip up with no trouble at all on his own but maybe not so easily with a toddler or two helping, these Mother's Day breakfast recipes will help you pull together a fabulous breakfast-in-bed for mom that the kids can help make.
Muffins are a great start to any day and when the kids help with the mixing they are twice as delicious. You can add chocolate chips or blueberries to these muffins or you can swap a cup of mashed banana for the yogurt and add some walnuts to make banana-nut muffins.
- 2 ¼ cups of all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- ½ cup sugar
- ½ cup vegetable oil
- 1 large egg
- 1 egg yolk
- 1 cup of either plain yogurt or of mashed banana
- 1 cup of chocolate chips, blueberries or chopped walnuts. If you are using blueberries or nuts, you can go as much as 1 ½ cups.
- Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
- Prepare your muffin tin by either spraying it with non-stick spray or lining it with paper cups.
- Mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
- In another bowl, mix together the sugar, vegetable oil, egg, egg yolk, and the yogurt or banana.
- Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients.
- Mix just until the batter is combined (you don't have to mix the batter smooth).
- Fill the cups to the top.
- Bake for 20 minutes.
- Test for doneness by inserting a toothpick into the muffin. If it comes out clean, the muffin is done.
- Serve warm.
