Girl power, we learn a lot about it from our Mummas, Grandmothers and Aunts. Some of us may be blessed with other influential woman who have inspired us, loved us, supported us and been there no matter what over the years. So how do you say thank you to all of these wonderful ladies? How do you show Mum that she really is amazing, even if she does occasionally get on your nerves (come on, all Mums do. It is part of their job description)? Host a brunch for all! Weather you make it ladies only, or the whole family gets involved – put on a morning that Mum won’t forget. She will be bound to love it, after all she tends to be the host instead of the guest a lot of the time!

The Menu

5-Ingredient Jam Rolls

Simple yet scrumptious. Dough, jam, fresh berries, melted butter and topped with a sprinkle of icing sugar! Pinhole Press is the inspiration for this one.

Baked Churros

These are not your regular fried churros, Sprinkle Bakes has mastered the baked churros! Love how Sprinkle Bakes has turned these delicious Spanish doughnuts into love hearts. Original inspiration was Valentines Day (super cute!), but Mum will love these hearts! You could even bake them to say Mum!

Time to add a little bit of savoury to the mix. While Mum is sweet, and may enjoy a little treat, make sure you keep the balance of your brunch with some savoury bakes. This stuffed bread by She Knows is one you won’t stop stuffing your face with!
