Looking for some for Mother’s Day Baking Ideas? Then this selection from no bake to “a little more effort” will impress mum’s everywhere.
WHAT IS #COOKBLOGSHARE?
CookBlogShare is a community for food bloggers to share recipes and foodie posts and generally support the food blogging community. The community is centered around the #CookBlogShare linky.
It is a wonderful way for a wide range of food writers, recipe creators and bloggers to come together and share each other’s recipes.
The last linky was hosted by Melissa at Melissa Traub who put together a collection of 9 Lunch Meal Prep Ideas.
What is Mothering Sunday and why is it at different times each year?
Unlike other holidays, Mothering Sunday in the UK falls on a different day each year.
Mothering Sunday takes place on the fourth Sunday in the festival of Lent, exactly three weeks before Easter Sunday.
Traditionally, it was a day when children, mainly daughters, who had gone to work as domestic servants were given a day off to visit their mother and family. On their way home, they would often pick wild flowers.
Mothering Sunday in the UK, although often called Mother’s Day actually has no connection with the American festival of that name.
Spring Mother’s Day Baking Ideas from Lost in Food
Our fresh and zingy lemon and poppy seed cake is an ideal bake to impress mum on Mother’s Day. Easy to make in a loaf tin, its ideal to let mum enjoy with a relaxing cup of tea in the afternoon.
The ideal no bake recipe to impress your mum is our decadent dark chocolate and ginger tiffin slices. An easy make refrigerator cake that can be prepared ahead of time and served when you choose. Rich and deserving for Mother’s Day.
Gluten Free Mother’s Day Baking Ideas
If you are looking at some gluten free options then Rebecca from Glutarama has this amazing fruity gluten free breton gateau that is calling my name. Light and fluffy and flavoured with apricot jam, this is my ideal treat in the afternoon.
A more British twist, this gluten free banoffee cake from Kate at Gluten Free Alchemist is still amazingly gluten free but still with all those flavours of banoffee pie – a decadent dessert for Mother’s Day.
And finally another treat from Gluten Free Alchemist are these great little eclair cupcakes – gluten free and using Cadbury’s chocolate eclair sweets.
