“Spending some quality time with your mum on Mother’s Day can be just as appreciated as a lovely present. A leisurely day out shopping together is the best of both worlds!”
Natalie Mills, Indigo Digital Marketing Coordinator
BREAKFAST IN BED
Say thank you for a lifetime of love and fussing with the ultimate favour – a luxurious breakfast in bed! Encourage your mum to enjoy a well-deserved lie in, while you immerse yourself in the kitchen preparing her favourite treat. Freshly picked flowers from the garden or a bouquet of cheerful daffodils are sure to make her smile. You know just how she loves her morning coffee too, so remember to use her best mug and a freshly-polished cafetiere.
“My Mom grew up on the East Coast of America where the winters are bitterly cold, a stack of piping hot pancakes is a delightful way to start the day, and a sure fire way to kick off an amazing weekend. They always make me think of her and my childhood.“
Alice Pell Burlinson, Indigo Marketing Manager
My Mom’s Fluffy American Pancakes
135g/4¾oz self-raising flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon thick natural yoghurt
130ml/4½fl oz milk
1 large egg and egg yolk lightly beaten
2 tbsp melted salted butter
Large handful of Blueberries
Maple Syrup to serve
Sift dry ingredients, whisk together wet ingredients and combine, whisk all together and leave to stand for ten minutes.
Melt a knob of butter in a pan and dollop on batter – about two tablespoons per pancake.
Wait for little bubbles to appear on the surface – this means they are ready to flip!
Give the other side a couple of minutes and make sure they are golden brown before serving. Top with more butter, Maple Syrup and don’t be afraid to top with crisp bacon, the salty sweet combo is to die for.
