What to make this Mother's Day?
(40+ recipes and desserts)
Here are 40 plus Mother's Day recipes that you can make for that special woman in your life. Choose from simple cookies, cakes, desserts, and more.
A very happy Mother's Day weekend to all mothers everywhere. These are strange times we live in and while it would be very easy to just buy your mom something. Perhaps this year, you can even make her something special.
Making something for mom doesn't have to be a time-consuming project. Try somethings as simple as making her a simple breakfast parfait, which takes as little as five minutes.
Whatever you decide, I highly recommend doing something to make your mom feel good. She will remember it forever. It's true. Moms have good memories of little things their kids do for them.
My blog is loaded with things you can do for mom. So, following are a few things that I handpicked for you.
Start mom's day with a healthy and hearty breakfast (in bed if possible). Below, I have used homemade granola (which is so easy to make) and homemade yogurt (with needs only two ingredients). But, you can certainly use store-bought cereals, yogurt, honey, and a few fresh fruits. See how to make a breakfast yogurt parfait here.
Chocolate coated strawberries
The next easiest dessert on my list is Panna cotta. Not many people know, but this dessert actually takes only 15 minutes to make and 3 hours to chill. The list of ingredients is very small, just 5 to 6 ingredients (milk, cream, sugar, gelatin, fruit). See all panna cotta recipes.
Almost every one of us has memories making brownies with mom. It's what we did with mom when we were kids. Bring back those memories.
These are one of the easiest bakes. The batter takes just 10 minutes, and you only need a pan or two. See all brownie recipes.
Flourless chocolate cake
These mini treats are always welcome for all holidays and special occasions. You will be surprised how simple and easy these truffles are to make. Featured below are Coconut balls, coconut chocolate truffles, homemade chocolate marzipan truffles, Pecan marzipan truffles. See all truffle recipes.
Bars and blondies
These are always a great way to brighten up an afternoon tea. Whether you choose these pecan pie blondies or apricot crumble bars. Most of these take less than an hour to prep and bake. See all bars, squares, and blondies here.
Simple, easy, and delicious cakes at their best. A great way to enjoy cake with afternoon tea, but without all the frosting. See all coffee cakes here. Featured below are my popular blueberry cream cake, sour cream coffee cake, chocolate chip banana cake, moist coconut cake.
Most people don't realize that creme brulee is an easy dessert with just a few ingredients and no special skills required. It's a great way to impress mom on this special day. Don't you think? Featured below is the classic creme brulee and apricot creme brulee.
Who doesn't love cheesecake? Whether you choose to make a baked or unbaked cheesecake this is a sure winning dessert. Mom will be so proud of you. Tip - use her favorite fruit to decide which cheesecake to make. Then, decide if you want to make it a baked or unbaked. Try baked strawberry, blueberry, mango, raspberry or chocolate, or try unbaked vanilla, mango or strawberry. See all cheesecake recipes.
A mousse is one of those versatile desserts that can make anyone feel good. Even mom. It's comfort food.
Try my simple 3 ingredient chocolate mousse or the classic chocolate mousse. For something different try chestnut mousse or mango my coconut mango mousse, which is also vegan.
Here a few varieties for you to try. See all mousse recipes.
No no, you don't have to make the tart shells, buy them ready-made. In fact, you can even buy the filling. While you can certainly make your own tart shells, you can also buy prebaked tart shells. Fill them with chocolate ganache, lemon curd, fruit fillings. The options are endless. See all mini tarts.
These are not your classic cinnamon rolls. They are topped with condensed milk. Rich, moist, and sweet, these are simple and easy to make.
Mini cakes and cupcakes will always have a special place for moms. Remember all those cupcakes she baked for you when you were small. Surprise her with one of these. Featured below chocolate fudge cupcakes, Chocolate cherry cupcakes, strawberry cupcakes, white chocolate cupcakes. See all my cupcake recipes here.
