Mother’s Day, a day to intentionally celebrate mom. And as time has evolved, it has become a day to celebrate all the mother figures in our lives: grandma, step-mom, aunts, godmothers, mother-in-laws, those special friends who act as a mother figure, etc.
There are so many ways to celebrate mom.
- Bring mom flowers. Did you know the founder of mother’s day envisioned all moms wearing white carnations on this day? You can learn more about the history of Mother’s Day here.
- Cook a bubbly themed brunch with the best Mother’s Day breakfast menu, of course, found right here.
- Bake a cake. Did you know that in England it’s tradition for children to bake their moms a cake?
- Make a homemade gift which is especially a big hit if it’s from the grandkids and don’t forget to involve the grand-dogs too.
- Make or send a card. Is it just my mom who I’m pretty sure has kept Hallmark in business? She absolutely loves a card and never ever misses someone’s birthday or anniversary.
Now, if you’re a mom yourself and are finding that you are planning your own day (or the day for you, your own mom and your mother-in-law), we’ve got you covered and it will be amazing.
To accompany your awesome mimosa bar or bottomless mimosa brunch try this Mother’s Day breakfast. All food items include bubbly in the recipe and there are 2 easy bubbly drinks to accompany it as well.
The Best Mother’s Day Breakfast Menu
If you’re new to making crepes, there’s no need to be intimidated! I will say crepes used to intimidate me and I’d default to making pancakes because I thought I had to stuff them and make them look all fancy. But there is no need to do that if you don’t want to.
You can simply put out all of the toppings and allow everyone to make their own custom crepe. Not only can everyone have exactly what they want, but they can try a variety too.
Now that being said, I am certainly no expert and definitely not a food blogger. Here’s what I know…these were far from perfect, but they were delicious and to me that is much more important.
- 3 eggs, lightly beaten
- 1 cup almond milk
- ¾ cup almond bubbly
- 1¾ cups all-purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons melted butter
- In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, and bubbly.
- Whisk in flour.
- Add melted butter then whisk quickly for a few minutes.
- Cover and refrigerate for 1-3 hours to let the batter settle
- Heat a lightly oiled non-stick skillet or griddle over medium heat..
- When skillet is hot but not smoking, pour about 1/4-1/3 cup of batter in to make a thin crepe. Since I made them in an individual frying pan, I used 1/3 cup and swirled the pan a bit to “thin” them out
- Cook until golden. About 2 minutes on one side and then flip 2 minutes on the other side. The hotter the pan got, I was able to cut down by about 15 seconds on each side. At the end, it only took about 90 minutes per side.
- Serve hot.
TIP: You can put all of the above ingredients into a blender, but be very cautious with the bubbly. It can cause a lot of foam and could potentially be a bit of a mess.
Now of course, you will need a bubbly themed sweet cream cheese or whipped cream to accompany your crepe, right?
Bubbly Sweet Cream Cheese
- 1 cup heavy whipping cream
- 1/4 cup almond bubbly
- 8 ounces whipped cream cheese
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- In a small bowl, whip the heavy cream on high until soft peaks begin to form. Reduce speed to medium and add in the bubbly. Increase speed back to high and whip until thickened. Set aside.
- In another bowl, take your whipped cream cheese and using a mixer on medium speed, slowly add in powdered sugar until combined.
- Fold whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture.
- Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
If you don’t have a hand mixer, this can all be whisked by hand and will be so much easier if you buy the whipped cream cheese.
TIP: If you don’t have powdered sugar, but do have a blender, you can take 1 cup of sugar and blend it into powdered sugar.
Homemade Bubbly Whipped Cream
- 1 cup heavy whipping cream
- 2 Tbsp sugar or powdered sugar
- 1 tsp almond bubbly
Put all of the ingredients into a bowl and mix until stiff peaks form.
If you have a hand mixer or immersion blender, that is probably the easiest way to make this. You could certainly use your Kitchen-Aid as well. You’re mixing this on medium until stiff peaks form.
I don’t have a hand mixer or Kitchen-Aid, so I put it into my Ninja blender cup. Adding all of the ingredients to the cup, I blended it for 30 seconds and it was perfect.
And because there is such a small amount of bubbly, you don’t have to worry about it foaming in the blender or making a mess.
And good news is, if you don’t have either of these, you can whip this by hand using a whisk, just know that you’re going to for sure get your arm workout in for the day. It could take as long as 10 minutes for the stiff peaks to form.
And now that you have whipped cream, you’ll want some toppings too.
You can put out a variety of fresh fruit to go on top of your crepes:
And then of course, there are some more decadent toppings
- Chocolate sauce
- Caramel topping
To keep with the bubbly theme for toppings, we tried two different toppings with strawberries.
First we took frozen strawberries and poured almond bubbly over them until they were completely covered. We put that in the fridge for no more than 1 hour. At 30 minutes, they have good flavor and are not mushy. At the hour mark, they also had good flavor but were a bit more mushy.
Once we were ready to serve them, we took them out of the bubbly and put them into their own serving dish. But do NOT throw that bubbly away, use it to create a strawberry topping that is more of a syrup consistency.
To do this, we put frozen strawberries into a blender and added enough bubbly (the bubbly the strawberries had been soaking in) to blend it up while keeping a thick consistency. Remember to go easy on the bubbly at first because it’s much easier to keep adding bubbly and not so easy to make it thicker (especially if you don’t have any more strawberries).
And of course, to keep things fun, I served up the frozen strawberries in a tulip glass.
TIP: We tried blending the strawberries that were soaking in the bubbly and taking fresh, frozen strawberries and adding bubbly to blend, and we preferred the second way that had more strawberry flavor.
By the way, you can also use this strawberry blend in mimosas. Just add to a glass and top with your favorite bubbly…it’s so good!
This breakfast feels so fancy and decadent (but really, it is super easy) so we think it needs its own special themed mimosa to compliment the crepes.
