{inspire} breakfast in bed

Mothers Day is a beautiful opportunity to show Mum how much you appreciate her! It's not all about the gifts - it's one of those days when the thought really does count. For me, being treated like a princess with breakfast in bed is the loveliest way to start the day! 

Today, stylist and photographer, Rose Hewartson has shared two of her favourite breakfast recipes and gorgeous images she captured to inspire you to spoil your mum with breakfast in bed this Mothers Day!

Scroll to the end for her delicious strawberry compote and buttermilk pancake recipes.

Strawberry Compote
+ 2 cups (250g) of fresh strawberries with tops removed
+ 2 tbsp (20g) of white sugar
+ Juice of 1 small lemon
+ 50 ml (50g) of water

Place ingredients in a medium sized saucepan over a low heat, stirring occasionally.

Cook for around 10 minutes until the liquid component thickens slightly.
You can choose to remove from the stove now or if you would prefer a thicker sauce, then leave on stove until it thickens further. 
Keep in mind that as the mixture cools it will thicken.
When sauce it at your desired consistency, remove from stove and either serve immediately, or cool completely and store in the refrigerator.

Note: Depending on the sweetness of your strawberries you may need more sugar. Taste the compote at the end of the cooking time. If is is not sweet enough for your taste then add another teaspoon of sugar and mix through. The mixture will still be hot enough for the sugar to melt through. If you find the sauce too sweet, you can add a bit more lemon, a teaspoon at a time.

Can be served over pancakes, pikelets, ice cream, cheesecake or overnight oats (bircher muesli).

Simple Buttermilk Pancakes
+ 1 cup (150g) of Self Raising Flour
+ 1 tbsp (10g) of white sugar
+ 1 cup (250ml) of buttermilk
+ 2 tbsp (40ml) of melted butter

Put the dry ingredients into a medium size mixing bowl and combine.
Make a well in the centre.
Pour in the buttermilk, then the melted butter.
Mix with a whisk until well combined, however do not mix for too long.
The mixture will be quite thick and may still have some lumps, and that is quite normal.
Allow to stand for 15 minutes.
Place a medium size non stick frypan over the stove on a low - medium heat.
Place a small amount of butter in pan and wait until it melts.
Pour about 1/2 a cup of the mixture into the centre of the frypan, cooking one pancake at a time on low-medium heat.
Pancake is ready to turn over when bubbles appear on the top.
Turn the pancake with a spatula and remove once both sides are golden. Repeat for remaining mixture which makes 4-5 medium sized pancakes.
