Who could possibly turn down a plate of light and fluffy American pancakes? This classic breakfast sees pancakes studded with blueberries, then stacked high, drizzled in syrup and topped with extra fruit, providing you with a sweet-tasting sensation to kick-start your day. We like ours served with a large pot of steaming hot coffee, or a brunch cocktail if we’re feeling fancy.
A breakfast burrito is a sure-fire way to fuel you through to lunch, especially when you stuff a nutritious wholemeal wrap with protein-rich eggs, avocado and smoky chipotle paste. It’s a brilliant savoury option if you’re having breakfast on the go, too.
Savoury or sweet? The choice is up to you, thanks to our all-in-one batter mix. For lighter waffles, whisk the egg white until fluffy, then fold through the batter.
Master the art of bagel-making with Edd Kimber‘s recipe. Bagels are an American breakfast staple, with a moreish, chewy consistency that makes them great for egg sandwiches or lox. These can be frozen for up to two months, so you can get ahead.
Enjoy the aroma of freshly baked muffins as you make this simple, sweet treat. Spiced with cinnamon and pumpkin purée, they serve as the perfect morning snack, especially in autumn.
