Don’t have mom wait till Mother’s Day brunch to eat on Mother’s Day. Cook mom breakfast with this easy Mother’s Day recipe. With a quick trip to the grocery store, kids can get in the kitchen and make mom a delicious treat that she will love.

Kids can get into the kitchen and learn to cook. Mother’s Day breakfast doesn’t have to be a doughnut or a bowl of cereal. With a little oversight, the kids can whip up a delicious recipe. More importantly, that time in the kitchen can turn into a love of food and cooking.

According to chef to the stars and author of Recipe for a Delicious Life, Zipora Einav, bringing kids into the kitchen can start a love of cooking. “It’s helpful to their self-sufficiency and self-confidence. They’ll become well-versed in how to help their future family eat healthy and have fun making meals together, because the heart of a family is in the kitchen.”

Chef Zipora provided this simple and delicious Mother’s Day recipe that the kids can help bake. While the recipe does include a few ingredients that you might not have at home (like buttermilk and coconut oil), all of these ingredients can be found in a local grocery store.

The reason why I like this recipe is twofold. One, the combination of fresh blueberries and lemon is a perfect Mother’s Day flavor. It is both tart and sweet. Also, using fresh fruit is great choice. Even if you used this recipe off season, blueberries are usually available.

Second, this recipe shows that baking from scratch isn’t hard. Sure, many people go to the baking mix aisle to bake a cake. Those baking mixes are great and are easy. But, baking from scratch can be rewarding, too. With a little planning, anyone can bake from scratch. Plus, if you have the ingredients at home, you can satisfy your cake craving without going to the grocery store.
