Wonderful Recipes to Spoil Mum on Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is right around the corner, and one of the best ways to show your appreciation for your mum is through food!  

Whether you’re planning a lavish brunch or fancy baking a celebratory cake, we have a number of recipes that are sure to put a smile on mum’s face. 

Each recipe is enriched with the natural sweetness of pure maple syrup, making this year’s Mother’s Day that extra bit special.

Maple eggs benny with bacon

Eggs benny is arguably the most iconic of brunch dishes, and the addition of maple sugar truly takes it to the next level. 

Key to the perfect eggs benedict recipe is the hollandaise sauce. We make ours by mixing melted butter with egg yolks, maple vinegar and maple sugar, before seasoning with salt, pepper and chives. 

The sweetness of the sauce pairs wonderfully with the salty bacon and creamy poached eggs, while the toasted English muffins provide the perfect base for the dish. 

Serve with salad greens and roasted cherry tomatoes and you’ll have a meal that would fit right into your favourite fancy restaurant.

Beef carpaccio with a maple black garlic paste and rhubarb

Another dish that feels like fine dining, this beef carpaccio tastes as good as it looks and can be enjoyed either as a starter or main. 

The recipe works best with sirloin or tenderloin, with the beef cut into thin slices and then topped with a maple-infused black garlic paste and a few strips of rhubarb. 

The maple syrup adds a subtle sweetness to the dish, while the black garlic paste adds depth and umami flavour. 

If you want to take this beef carpaccio recipe to new heights, finish by decorating with fresh herbs, crumbling on some goat’s cheese and adding a few bread croutons.

Passionfruit maple martini

If your mum enjoys a cocktail, then this fruity and refreshing passion fruit martini is sure to go down a treat. 

Ideal for special occasions, the iconic cocktail combines vanilla vodka, passion fruit liqueur, freshly squeezed lime juice and pure maple syrup. 

This martini is more sweet than sour, with the vanilla vodka and maple syrup blending well with the lime juice and citrusy notes of the passion fruit. 

The recipe only takes a few minutes to prepare, so even if you haven’t thought ahead, you can still surprise mum with a delicious cocktail on her special day!

Lemon myrtle, maple and raspberry cheesecake

There’s nothing quite like baking a cake to show your appreciation for a loved one! This baked lemon cheesecake is sweet, zesty and incredibly easy on the eye. 

The base is made with salt, butter and crushed digestive biscuits, while the batter consists of cream cheese and lemon myrtle. 

Pure maple syrup is used in the cheesecake batter, adding a splash of sweetness that balances well with the lemon myrtle’s citrus notes. 

Once baked and left to refrigerate, garnish with fresh berries and pour over some more maple syrup for a visually stunning and deliciously sweet dessert.

Vegan Thai green curry

Looking for a vegan main to enjoy with mum? This vegan Thai green curry is rich in flavour and packed with heart-healthy ingredients. 

The recipe sees asparagus and sweet potato soaked in a fragrant curry sauce, though you may also add capsicums, mushrooms or any of your other favourite veggies. 

The dish boasts a range of flavours, with sweetness from the coconut milk and maple syrup, zestiness from the lime juice and a hint of spice from the chilli flakes. 

Serve with jasmine rice and freshly chopped coriander to complete the meal.
