Mother’s Day is just around the corner …. did y’all know that?! It’s not generally a big scene at our house ….
my husband the kids usually get me a little something with a card and they take me out to dinner. Truth be told, I don’t really want or need a lot of fuss.
Isaac and Thomas (my 12 and soon-to-be 11 year old kids, respectively) always want to make me breakfast in bed for Mother’s Day or my birthday ….. although I love the thought, I have this fear of them burning our house down in the process. So, unless it’s something really easy (read – it doesn’t really involve cooking – think toast here) … it’s a no go. I appreciate their thought, but I just can’t let them run free in my kitchen.
My thought is to make something like this Blackberry & Lemon Coffee Cake the day before …. and let them go through all the fuss of breakfast in bed ….. so they still feel like they’re doing what they want to do …. and it spares my kitchen! 🙂 I can already see it now!
This coffee cake has such spring-time flavors in it. Not only is it great for brunch, but it could double as a dessert in my opinion! It’s not overly heavy – and the berry and citrus flavor pairs well with the cake.
Make it for your Mom …. or make it for yourself to spare your kitchen on Mother’s Day! Take it to your church’s ladies’ group … or any get together with your girlfriends! I hope it is enjoyed no matter where it goes! 🙂
I hope you enjoy! Shared at these
