3 Mother’s Day breakfast recipes the kids can make

Blueberry pancakes

Pancakes with Blueberries a Mother's Day breakfast that kids can make

Many cooks would make their own batter. But if you aren’t much of a chef and the kids are really little, the shaker bottles you get from the supermarket are great for little kids. Simply make batter as per instructions on the bottle and shake like crazy.

Of course, if the kids are a little older and want to make from pancakes from scratch, here is simple pancake recipe: In a bowl, whisk 1 egg, ¾ cup milk and 1 tbsp caster sugar. Sift in 1 cup self-raising flour and whisk until the batter is smooth and lump-free.

Cook pancakes, and stack with butter and maple syrup. For added wow factor, sprinkle with blueberries and dust with icing sugar.

Looks spectacular and tastes deeeeeelicious! It’s the perfect Mother’s Day breakfast!
