Breezing the day on weekends is all about brunch! It could be treating your friends, family or a special someone at home, or whipping up a little something extra just for you to put a smile on your dial as you start the day. With spring settling in (yes, we’re ignoring those polar blasts!), it’s almost time to step outdoors and serve brunch al fresco. Or stay rugged up and cosy indoors waiting for the sun to heat up the day.
However you enjoy yours, here are 5 super easy brunch recipes to inspire and satisfy every palate. Add your own twists to create a recipe to call your own!
1. Double Chocolate Hazelnut Pancake Stack
If you’ve got a hankering for pancakes for weekend brunch, take it up a level with these divine Double Chocolate Hazelnut Pancake Stacks made with our heavenly chocolate almond milk. This delectable brunch starts with making your own version of Chocolate Hazelnut Spread. When you’ve whipped up your batch of chocolate pancakes, stack them on top of each other with lashings of choccie hazelnut goodness in between each one. Share with someone you love for a little bit naughty, whole lot nice start to a lazy Sunday!
2.Dairy-Free Creamed Rice
Comfort food for brunch? Yes, it’s a thing! Our Dairy-Free Creamed Rice will hit all the happy spots this spring. It’s so easy to make and can simmer while you take a shower and plump up the cushions before your guests arrive. It’s also perfect to throw into a heatproof dish and take to someone else’s for brunch. Serve sprinkled with cinnamon, drizzled with maple syrup or honey and a generous amount of plump blueberries. This childhood dessert treat is guaranteed to wow!
3.Bacon and Zucchini Frittata
Just the smell of our Bacon and Zucchini Frittata cooking will have the neighbours queuing round the block! It’s so easy to make and is packed full of gorgeous vegetables like spinach, mushrooms, onion, basil, tomatoes and of course zucchini. Add capsicum for an extra flavour burst. If you’re heading out and taking your brunch cooking finery to family or friends, partially cook the night before and give it another ten minutes in the oven the next day to finish cooking while re-heating. Throw over a clean towel and deliver it still deliciously warm Too easy! Serve with a generous serving of new season avocados and a slight squeeze of fresh lemon. Mmmmmm!
4.Almond French Toast
The weekend is the perfect time to use up the week’s the leftover bread (especially those crusts!), and we can’t think of a better recipe to do it than this Almond French Toast. Now that you’ve learned how to make your own homemade Chocolate Hazelnut Spread from our Double Chocolate Hazelnut Pancake Stacks (recipe above), your French toast will never taste better. Or if you want to make the most of this season’s big, juicy lemons, then ditch the spread and simply spoon on your favourite sugar and a drizzle of freshly squeezed lemon and serve. YUM!
5.Heavenly Homemade Crumpets
There are few things quite as satisfying as making your own, piping hot, homemade crumpets, and when you make our Heavenly Homemade Crumpets you’ll wonder how you never made them before. They’re not only so easy to make but you can get inventive with the recipe adding blueberries for sweet or even herbs for savoury crumpets.

Just perfect!
