Mother’s Day is round the corner and I’m excited!Every mother works hard for her family each day and its always sweet to surprise her with breakfast in bed so she can relax and take it easy for a change.Makes us moms feel special and appreciated :).My kids and the hubs have spoilt me crazy on Mother’s Day with their plans almost every year.Its always great to see their excitement for their efforts and fills me with so much gratitude. I look forward to my kids’ sweet cards and poems too!This time around we’re planning to do a 5K Mother’s Day Walk in support of March of Dimes followed by lunch and I’m looking forward to it!
I’m glad to be partnering with Bonne Maman for a special mother’s day Breakfast in bed recipe using their delicious strawberry preserves that’s perfect for whipping up something magical for us moms. While my mom is miles away from me, I can totally imagine her enjoying her breakfast in bed with these scrumptious stuffed pancakes using Bonne Maman Strawberry Preserves that are perfectly decadent and fluffy with fennel and ricotta.
Bonne Maman preserves are my favorite mainly for the fact that taste like homemade and they’re free from preservatives and artificial flavors.The flavors are fantastic and they’re made with the same time-honored traditional French recipes used to create the brand. They’re perfect for my Stuffed pancakes oozing out and adding their sweet fruity goodness in every bite.
I came up with the idea of using fennel in this recipe reminiscing my mom’s Indian style pancakes called Pua that uses fennel and banana. They’re out of this world and the fennel works well with the ricotta for this recipe.The process is fairly simple and its just a matter of mixing all the ingredients to make a batter. The egg whites are then folded in carefully that makes these pancakes light and airy.Once its in the pan the strawberry preserve is added and covered with a small amount of batter and cooked to perfection until all fluffy with slightly golden edges.The fennel imparts a lovely sweet aroma and flavor to these pancakes and its what special breakfasts’ are made of!Enjoy and a very happy Mother’s Day to you all!
