It’s Fathers Day this weekend, so I’ve got another recipe round-up for you! My Dad has always been one of the biggest LK fans, and Sunday is the perfect opportunity to make lots of treats to spoil him! I’ve split this round-up into three sections. Of course, breakfast is where it starts and there’s definitely room for some indulgence here! Next is chocolatey bites – an essential for Fathers Day and a really great edible gift. Finally, there’s dessert to end the day on a high!
On any Sunday, it’s nice to have a long, lazy breakfast. Fathers Day is an even better excuse to make a delicious morning feast for everyone to enjoy. I know a lot of Fathers, mine included, enjoy a savoury breakfast. But surely, no one can turn down these Banoffee Pancakes?! Not only do they look amazing, the banoffee flavour is one that is always a big hit. If you’re after a lighter breakfast, or a two course breakfast, I find it’s nice to have something you can make in advance. From the blog, these Blueberry Crumble Muffins are an ideal treat for a special breakfast. In the book, the Raw Mocha Granola Bars are perfect alongside a pot of freshly brewed coffee.
The best kind of presents are the edible kind! I don’t think any Dad would be disappointed if you baked them a gift – especially something chocolatey! The first thing that comes to mind is, of course, brownies. These Salted Caramel Brownies would be my recommendation, as I really can’t get enough of the gooey middle. Flapjacks are also sure to go down well, especially these Almond Butter Flapjacks which are my Dad’s favourite. Finally, if you go through the book you’ll find our famous Chocolate Caramel Biscuit Fingers. I think these would be great for Fathers Day, as you can box them up and make them look like a very yummy gift!
For the grand finale, there always needs to be an amazing dessert – the Show Stopper! Every Father I’m sure, has their favourite classic dessert. For my Dad, it would have to be the humble Apple Pie, which is why this was one of the first recipes I attempted to develop for the book. It was certainly a challenge to create an Apple Pie using alternative ingredients that was up to my Dad’s standard, but thankfully, this one is now his favourite! I’ve recreated lots of classic recipes in both blog recipes and the book, so I hope your Dad’s favourite dessert is there. From the blog, you can’t go far wrong with these Carrot Cake Doughnuts, drizzled in a hot pecan maple sauce.
