My scones recipe is a go-to for brunch. With over 15 varieties, I’m confident you’ll find one mom loves. Blueberry scones and chocolate chip scones (pictured below) are two favorites! Top scones with lemon curd (pictured below) for an extra special treat.
Gluten Free Chocolate
This deliciously moist and rich flourless chocolate cake is naturally gluten free, super easy to prepare, and there’s no special assembly required. Or try this 7 ingredient gluten free and vegan chocolate coconut almond tart.
Easy Cinnamon Rolls
These are the easiest homemade cinnamon rolls because they only require 1 rise. And this giant cinnamon roll cake is surprisingly simple too… just a matter of slicing dough into strips and spiraling them together.
Double chocolate muffins and jumbo blueberry muffins have been in my recipe rotation for years, so if you’re looking for a muffin mom will love, both are prime choices. I also have this base muffin recipe where you can use your favorite add-ins and flavors.
Raspberry Almond Crumb Cake
Readers obsess over this raspberry almond crumb cake recipe. I’m not exaggerating… this recipe has a big fan club!
Simple One Layer Cake

Madeleines or Petit Fours
Light & airy, my homemade madeleines feature a delicious buttery lemon flavor. And if mom is craving something extra special with her tea, she would love petit fours.
Lemon Pudding Cakes
With fluffy lemon cake on top and rich lemon pudding on the bottom, these unique lemon pudding cakes are a texture dream. It’s all made from 1 easy cake batter and 8 simple ingredients.
