We’ve already gone into March, 2018 is flying past! Apart from being the month where spring officially starts we also have Mother’s day coming up, the time to spoil your mum and show her how much you appreciate her, and what better way to do that than with a freshly baked sweet treat? I’ve lined up some great Mother’s day recipes so that you can make your mum extra happy on this special day!

Sticky Salted Date Caramel Banana Cake

Salted Caramel Sticky Banana Cake

This salted date caramel banana cake is seriously sticky in the best way. At Livia’s Kitchen we have an obsession with drizzling salted caramel over everything. If you or your mum are anything like us then you will love this recipe. The caramelised bananas are the perfect addition. We also recommend serving with a dollop of peanut butter for an extra indulgent experience.

Fudgy Chocolate Cashew Brownies

These fudgy brownies are some of the best ones we’ve made so far! A good brownie is always appreciated. We put cashew butter and ground almonds in ours which makes them extra fudgy. It’s super quick and easy to make and the gorgeous fresh pink almond yoghurt gives us spring feelings in the office! What better way to show your mum that you love her than with a gooey chocolate treat?

Espresso Caramel Breakfast Bar

For coffee lovers, these espresso caramel breakfast bars are perfect! They’re quick and easy to make, deliciously made with cashew butter, oats, coffee amongst some other ingredients. Surprise your mum with these delicious treats in the morning and she’ll get onto the perfect start on Mother’s day!

Peanut Butter Fondant

If your mother loves peanut butter (or just an indulgent chocolate fudgy treat) this is the cake to make her! These fondants have a gooey peanut butter centre surrounded by a delicious rich chocolate sponge. Your mum will not be disappointed! The recipe is very easy to make, yet super impressive, so it’s definitely worth a try if you want this year’s Mother’s day to be fuss-free.

Carrot cake

Gluten free carrot cake

What better way to celebrate than with a layered cake to share with your family? We recently updated our classic carrot cake recipe and you just have to try it! The layers of cake are so moist because of the carrots and almond flour and are perfectly complimented by the zesty cashew frosting. This is the perfect indulgent celebration cake to make with your family this Mother’s day.

Lemon Scones with Raspberry Jam

Our lemon scones with fruity chia jam are super fresh because of the combination of berries and zest. They’re the perfect afternoon tea treat for you and your mum to have together. Scones are a classic and we’ve put an indulgent twist on them to make them extra special. We’ve topped with homemade raspberry jam and lemon cashew butter. Why not create some more delicious treats from the blog?

Banoffee Breakfast Sundae

I’ll let the title of this indulgent breakfast treat speaks for itself; what more can you ask for? The bananas are slowly pan fried with coconut sugar and coconut oil until they become sticky and caramelised then added to the granola and caramel yoghurt, it’s certainly a treat your mother deserves! The combination of coconut and banana bring tropical feelings which is something we all need when summer feels far away. Preferably the sundae is drenched in a warm chocolate sauce, after all it’s only Mother’s day once a year so why not go all out?

I hope this has made you inspired to make something delicious for Mother’s day! Don’t forget to tag us in your recreations #liviaskitchen as we all love seeing your creations!
