Make Mother’s Day Extra Special With These Great Recipes

Are you having mom over for brunch on Mother&rsquos Day? Whether you want to serve her a decadent breakfast or want to create a special lunch for her, using no-fuss recipes is a great way to serve her a delicious meal without the hassle. And with Mother&rsquos Day right around the corner, it&rsquos never too early to consider planning your menu. To get started, use the following recipes as a simple — and delicious — way to honor mom. These recipes are also streamlined and easy enough to assemble that your child can pitch in too.

Bread Pudding

This bread pudding is an easy-to-assemble recipe that even a young child can help put together (with some adult supervision, of course). The assembly time takes fewer than 10 minutes, while the long baking time frees you up to prepare other items on your brunch menu. The recipe was inspired by AllRecipes.com’s bread pudding with changes to both the ingredients and a bit of the directions. Enjoy!

Ingredients:
  • 5 to 6 slices of bread
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 4 dashes of nutmeg (optional)
  • 1/3 cup dried fruit, such as raisins, cranberries or cherries
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans or walnuts (optional)
  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Arrange bread in an 8-by-8 or 9-by-9 baking pan. Bread does not have to be cut in cubes, but you may need to cut some of the slices to completely cover the bottom of the pan.
  3. In a bowl, mix eggs, milk, honey, cinnamon and nutmeg, stirring until all ingredients are combined and the mixture turns a light brown color. You don’t want the honey to clump. Drizzle the mixture over the bread and make sure the bread is completely covered by the egg mixture or it will dry out in the oven.
  4. Sprinkle dried fruit and chopped nuts over the bread and egg mixture.
  5. Bake for about 45 minutes or until the pudding has a soufflé-like appearance that bounces back when lightly touched with a knife. Serve this bread pudding hot with a bowl of fresh-cut fruit and mom&rsquos favorite tea or coffee. This recipe serves four.

Tropical Smoothie

Does mom like fruit? If so, make sure to include this refreshing smoothie, which can be served with brunch or as an afternoon snack. It&rsquos also a quick and easy addition to any Mother&rsquos Day menu. This smoothie makes about one serving in a tall glass.
