I LOVE Mother's Day! Having waited what seems like an eternity to become a mother; I do totally treasure every single moment! So when the kids "make" and bring me breakfast in bed I am in HEAVEN. Now they usually are so excited about the breakfast tray they just have to share and sample their creation...(thanks Dad for all the help!!!!)....so much so that sometimes I barely get a bite!
Here is a super easy recipe that the kids can actually make mostly themselves and will make enough to guarantee you get some too! Whoever you kid's helper is will certainly appreciate being able to easily whip this us while enjoying that first cup of wake-up coffee!
Mother's Day Fresh Raspberry Coffee Cake:
