Jasmine’s 5 Mother’s Day Recipes for the Whole Family

It’s my first Mother’s Day as a mum!! For the occasion, I’ll be making a lovely brunch for Nick and me to celebrate in style. Whether you’re marking the occasion with your own mum, your partner or your kids, why not make something a little special? Here are some recipes to get you started.

Teff Waffles With Turmeric and Honey Drizzle

Heralding from East by West (page 79), via NYC, these waffles are the perfect sweet (but not too sweet!) meal for your Mother’s Day celebration. They are finished with a lovely turmeric and honey drizzle.

Buckwheat Banana Bread With Salty Butter

Another East by West (page 52) favourite, this is an eggless, gluten-free banana bread that will blow your mind. I like to throw in cinnamon and raisins to sweeten and walnuts for crunch, then spread with salty butter (or almond butter if you prefer).

One-Pan Brunch: Green Eggs and Olives

If a lie-in is on your programme this Mother’s Day, this dish was made for you. It’s super simple, made all in one pan, and sure to tickle your tastebuds.

Oregano and Smoked Paprika Sweet Tatty Towers With Sunny Side Up Eggs

These are smokey sweet sweet potato stacks served with cumin-spiked eggs — a true taste sensation for your whole family.
