Get ready for a delicious Mother’s Day with a batch of cheddar, bacon, and scallion corn bread.

With Mother’s Day fast approaching, we have some fresh baking ideas to make this spring holiday extra sweet and savory.  Mother’s Day breakfast is a tried-and-true tradition that allows children to show Mom just how much they care. Each year, kids (with the guidance of older family members) can learn about the fun in baking something special for Mom. Baking for Mom with other family members reinforces quality time in the kitchen, and might even lead to more quality time around the table. 

Pastry chef Jenny McCoy and the Culinary Team at Country Crock® whipped up a few sweet and savory desserts to easily make and serve this Mother’s Day. After all, Mom is the sweetest person you know — doesn’t she deserve to start her special day with something beautifully baked? 

Cheddar, Bacon, and Scallion Cornbread

Perhaps Mom’s sweet tooth errs on the more savory side. As Jenny McCoy mentions in the video above, this recipe will surely satisfy her cravings with a fluffy baked batter surrounding salty ingredients like chopped bacon and gooey cheese.

Blueberry Bundt Cake

You will love this elegant and airy dessert. Loaded with fresh blueberries and topped with a zesty lemon-sugar glaze, it’s sure to be a springtime treat for everyone.

Banana-Walnut Coffee Cake

Mom will savor every bite of this sweet and satisfying breakfast treat. Be sure to brew a cup of Mom’s favorite coffee (or tea) as a nice complement to this nutty and delicious baked good.
