- All those in favour of churros for breakfast, raise those hands!
- If you think a grapefruit mimosa should be on every breakfast menu across the land, raise the other hand!
- If you’re already nodding your head, we’re on the same bus……
- Does the thought of deep-fry and hot oil leave you cold?
- Are you tired of cardboard flakes and bouncy, blue-eyed eggs starring you down on Mother’s day?
- Wouldn’t you rather feast your eyes on this?
This churros french toast stack is on the Breakfast club Mother’s day menu. Chunky bread fingers soaked in eggy vanilla cream and pan-fried in foaming butter. Excuse me a moment. I’m just grabbing a napkin to mop my chin…. To finish, a feathery dusting of powered sugar and a drizzle of honey. To cheer things up even further, there are pink grapefruit mimosas to add sparkle and zing to what’s undoubtedly going to be a very fine day. If you’re going all out with a stay in brunch party, here are a couple of healthy options to add to the tray. For an energy-boosting smoothie, this peanut butter banana blast is on point or perhaps a deliciously creamy chocolate and blueberry nice cream (my morning favourite). If it’s granola you’re after, a bowl of gluten-free almond and honey puffed rice granola is scrumptiously good.
Clearly there are perks to being a mum…… Apart from a padded cell with a Nespresso coffee maker and a year’s supply of purple-coloured pods, a stack of churros french toast fingers would be very welcome too. Is this too much to ask? I think not. C’mon kids and older kid. (husbands, that’s you) Whip up a tray of these and let’s start the day off on a
good the best footing. Happy Mother’s day to all the women who make magic happen everyday.
