Pancakes are a treat; they are often cooked in ones pjs on a lazy weekend morning. So topping them with fresh blueberries and ice cream for our Mother’s Day shoot really pushed this already treat food into unchartered breakfast territory. Everyone has their favourite pancake topping; mine used to be lemon and sugar. But now the thought of sprinkling white table sugar on something feels so wrong (I say while talking about eating ice cream for breakfast).
Kate had made some amazing blackcurrant and lemon ice cream which will be posted later in the month. We intended to serve it with these pancakes however sometimes in the world of food blogging things don’t go to plan, ice cream doesn’t set and you have to improvise. So we did and we used a good old Kiwi favourite, hokey pokey.
Special mention must be made again to the team at Citta Design for their beautiful homeware and styling which features throughout our Mother’s Day shoot. My favourite pieces were the marble serving boards and the glass cake plate on stand, both of which can be found (along with the other props seen in our shoot) online at www.cittadesign.com.
Happy Mother’s Day mums.
