mothers-day-breakfastEvery Mom should, at the very least be treated to a fabulous breakfast in bed or a lunch made by her loving children. Here are a few ideas that are really easy, can be used for both breakfast or lunch and your Mom will appreciate all the effort more than any gift you could buy her. The best part is they are so simple, you will have plenty of time to tell her how much you appreciate her.

What you need

Crepes

4 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup cold water
1 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons melted butter
1 tablespoon sugar (if you are making sweet crepes)
1 teaspoon vanilla essence (if you are making sweet crepes)

Filling

1 punnet Fresh raspberries or any berries really
60ml water
2 tablespoons of sugar

gently heated until the liquid is syrupy but the fruit still firm.

The process

Add all of the ingredients together in a large mixing bowl and whisk together until the mixture is thoroughly mixed, thin and liquid. If you are using a hand whisk it will take max 2 minutes and about 1 minute with an electric mixer.

Heat a pan on a medium heat, spray liberally with spray and cook and allow to heat.

Pour in enough crepe mixture to thinly coat the base of the pan, cook for 30 seconds to 1 minute until the top appears slightly rubbery and the base is lightly browned (check with your spatula), turn and cook for another 30- seconds or so.

Place some of the syrupy fruit mixture in the center, fold or roll the crepe, sprinkle with a little caster sugar and that’s that, a happy Mom.

If you want to make savoury crepes for lunch here are a few ideas.

Creamy chicken crepes

Steam chicken breasts until cooked through and cut into small pieces.

Make this white sauce and season to taste, and mix in the chicken pieces.

Fill crepes and add extra sauce to the top of the crepe. Top off with some fresh parsley

You can also make the cheese sauce top off with extra cheese and place under the grill for a minute or two.
