Did you know it is Mother’s Day on Sunday? Not that I’m hinting or anything. It’s just that I made this breakfast for my kids the other day and it occurred to me what a lovely breakfast it would make for someone’s mum on Mother’s Day… and in bed too… with a cup of tea (just saying).
This is so easy that I made it on a school morning and considering my eldest daughter has to leave the house at 7.30am, that just shows how little effort it took. Not that your mum needs to know that and when she sees it, she will never know that something so lovely and elegant took so little time.
My recipe uses homemade spelt bread, but of course you can use any bread you like. This is also a great way to use up stale bread (but again, not something mum needs to know). I also used coconut milk, which is my favourite dairy free milk. It’s fresh, clean consistency makes it so similar to cow’s milk, but with just a hint of coconut flavour, it has a natural sweetness too.
If you’re plotting ways to spoil your mother this weekend (and I’m sure you are), making breakfast is just one idea. As a mum, I can tell you that the little things mean a great deal and I know such a gesture will be really appreciated.
