Mother’s Day is right around the corner and, although life is not quite back to normal, we still want moms to feel special on their day. This year, skip the been there, done that restaurant scene and whip up a fabulous—and far more heartfelt—breakfast or brunch right at home. The effort need not be complicated or time consuming. In fact, the French-inspired brand bakerly has created a number of quick and easy recipes for Mother’s Day that are not just delicious, but can also be made in less than 10 minutes! So, instead of venturing out to a crowded restaurant and navigating the social distancing scene, moms can enjoy a memorable homespun meal made with love.

With bakerly’s French pancakes to-go, crepes to-go and brioche bread, Mother’s Day cooking is a cake walk. With mouthwatering dishes that include French pancake fruit tacos and brioche pumpkin French toast, bakerly’s chefs have come up with a list of irresistible and easy recipes just about anyone can make. Each are based on the brand’s ready-made fluffy pancakes and crepes, which are available in four different varieties; chocolate, strawberry, crispy hazelnut balls and caramel. My personal favorite? The smokes salmon bites on sliced brioche.

Interestingly, as part of the company’s aspiration to bring traditional French pastries and baked goods into households across America, the brand’s pancakes to-go were the very first ready-to-eat French pancakes available in the U.S. Their popularity soon took off as moms and busy individuals realized they could take these tasty snacks anywhere and everywhere. Even kids are huge fans of the crepes to-go, which make handy school snacks.

Deliciousness aside, moms and other ingredient-minded foodies also appreciate that bakerly products don’t contain any preservatives, artificial flavoring or high fructose corn syrup and are made with authentic ingredients. In fact, the company even created a company-wide “No-No List” that listed more than 140 ingredients that they would never use in any product recipe.

So, with the May 9 holiday on fast approach, you’ll be happy to know that you can find bakerly products online as well as in supermarkets across the country. The web site has a convenient Store Locator to find a store near you. You might check out the company’s variety packs, which will allow you to sample all of their most popular snack and brioche products. Decidedly economical, bakerly’s crepes to-go can be purchased as a pack of six for $3.99 in a variety of delicious flavors and their pancakes to-go are $3.99 for a package of six.

Overall, bakerly’s philosophy is to make fun, nutritious and delicious bakery products with a “Savoir Faire” … or French know-how. By offering a great-tasting and healthy option to complement consumers’ active lifestyle, bakerly hopes their products will become an American favorite.
