5 Easy Bakes To Send Loved Ones This Mother’s Day
Want to show your appreciation for the spectacular women in your life and polish your baking skills at the same time? Here are some recipes for easy treats that can be dropped off at their doorstep.
These vegan brownie cookies are always a hit, so it's no wonder it's made this list. They’re easy to make and super quick to rustle up — all you need is 25 minutes and six ingredients. But the result is chewy, soft and gooey goodness that will absolutely put a smile on your loved one’s face. It’s a lovely token of gratitude while being super simple.
This bake is perfect for those that love a sweet treat without the chocolate. This lemon drizzle cake is zingy, sweet and fluffy, and definitely moreish (so it’s a good thing you’re dropping off the whole bake, right?!). What cake says ‘spring is here’ better than this fresh and light number?
Don’t trust yourself not to burn your bakes? This tiffin will come through for you. With digestive biscuits, glace cherries and a very, very generous helping of dark chocolate, this tiffin is rich and decadent, and is also ridiculously easy to throw together. There’s no baking involved, just a sensible amount of chill time, meaning there’s no excuse not to make a batch (and every excuse not to smuggle a square for yourself!).
We don’t think blondies generally get enough love and attention, making this blueberry blondies recipe our best kept secret. Only 10 minutes of prep time and you are still rewarded with fudgy, hot, fruity blondies that go great cool with a cup of tea as an afternoon snack, or warm with a big scoop of ice cream for dessert.
This one’s for those of us out there that think peanut butter and chocolate are the ultimate power couple. This pie is nutty, creamy and fluffy – and while it is by no means traditional, we have a feeling that once you deliver it to your loved one this Mother’s day, they’re going to request it every year after.
