  1. These all look delicious! Love that you have so many gluten free options on here! I’ll have to share this with my husband as a hint for mother’s day

    1. Laura, I’m sure there’s something here that your mother would enjoy. Just make sure that your hints to your husband are not too subtle. πŸ™‚

  2. Alexandra – you have left me salivating after checking out all of these recipes! Ha! There honestly isn’t one I would turn away, but I would love to start with the meringues with berries and cream! And honestly if anyone made me breakfast in bed I would eat anything lol

    1. Hi Yolanda, thank you for the great comments. Meringues with berries are always a good starting point but perhaps you could drop some hints that an almond croissant, served in bed, would be very nice. They are delicious. Enjoy! πŸ™‚

  3. Sooo many delicious recipes to choose from!! I wouldnt even know where to start… but I know my mum would love every single one of them… and so do I!

  4. What a great round up! I can not go past meringue or pavlova particularly yours with berries and cream! My mum passed away when I was nine but I love on spoil my mother in law on mother’s day.

  7. These all look amazing! I need to invite you to the party. LOL. But seriously, I am really interested in trying a few of these, so I’ll have to carve out some time. πŸ™‚

    1. Scott, I can recommend the Chocolate Sour Cream Cake; it is one of the easiest cakes I’ve ever made. You may be surprised by your own ability. πŸ˜‰

  8. These are some really great dessert ideas. I would love to have any of these on this special day.

  9. Ugh! My sweet mouth starts to water already. I am such a huge fan of desserts like this. I am sure mothers at any age would love it.

  10. My son loves baking and whipping up sweets for the family. I’ll have to show him these so he can try some of them out this weekend!

    1. David, I wondered if the Chocolate and Peanut Butter Banana Bites would be suitable for your mother? There’s no added sugar, just the natural sugars in the banana and that which is in the chocolate. Let me know how it goes. πŸ™‚

  11. Goodness! My mom would be spoilt for choice since she loves all things chocolates and fruits. I’m just drooling too!

  13. I am planning to cook something special for my mum on mother’s day and I am glad I found this. Now I can try to make some mouth-watering desserts for her.

  14. My mom loves strawberries and I will make the ones with strawberries you posted here. I will start with the chocolate covered strawberries. That’s easy to make!

  15. These desserts look delicious! Of course, anything with chocolate is an instant win. The berries and tarts all look amazing too.

  16. We’ve already celebrated Mothers Day in the UK, but this is such a yummy collection of recipes. May try a couple of them anyway!

  17. Oh yummy, I’m loving the range of ideas. The chocolate covered strawberries are great. Easy to make yet really tasty.

  18. What a great collection of recipes, Alex! Homemade gifts (especially those from the kitchen) are the best. I’m thinking Robbie and I should try our hand at those pecan puffs as a Mother’s Day gift this year! πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you David, there are so many to choose from. I always appreciate homemade, edible gifts. I think the pecan puffs would be well received. πŸ™‚

  19. What a delicious selection of desserts! I’d be happy with any (or all) of these!

  21. Oh wow what a wonderful selection of sweet treats! Delish. I would love to make the peach, raspberry and white chocolate muffins.

  22. This is such a useful post for a baker who sometimes lacks inspiration (me!). I’m feeling all inspired, especially as I had some yummy jam shortbreads at a cafe, yesterday, and look what you have a recipe for!!

  23. All such yummy ideas! I am especially intrigued by the chocolate sour cream cake! I might have to tell my husband to make that for me!

  24. The chocolate based desserts would have to be my favourite, but that being said – I love them all! Delicious.
