How To Do Brunch Right

Take a group of six friends. Pile them around a table in the garden at 9am, and add two pots of tea, two bottles of orange juice, and a carton of some sort of smoothie.

Encourage everyone to bring something to go with pancakes and croissants. Marvel at the fact that no one brought bacon (we aren't a sweet-with-savoury sort of group).

Whisk up a batch of pancakes- to more than serve six, we used two mugfuls of self-raising flour, two mugfuls of milk, two eggs, a heaped teaspoon of baking powder, a drizzle of oil, and a few heaped spoonfuls of caster sugar. Whisk well, then fry in batches. Keep warm in the oven, and try not to flip any onto the floor.

Warm through a couple of packets of croissants. Find every possible croissant or pancake topping possible in the storecupboard- raspberry jam, honey, maple syrup, nutella, blueberry and lime jam- all are fair game here. Add bowls of blueberries, peaches, and sliced banana.

Pile everything onto the table- pass the jam, grab a pancake, and just generally let everyone dig in.

You're joining us next week, right? This lot are a friendly bunch. Promise. (And they asked to be here)


  1. 9am?! The only time I see 9am at the moment is when I haven't slept!
    This looks great :) sharing food with people is so important to me, I think it should be to everyone! Whether it's going out for food or eating together in the house. Last night me and two of my housemates ordered a chinese together, and earlier we went to a cafe for lunch (splashing out as we're all parting ways for summer!) and it was so perfect to be sitting around talking over food :')

  2. you sure know how to have a good brunch!

  3. I'm not a brunch kind of girl - I need food in my belly first thing - however even I'm convinced in wanting to join in! That table (it's contents mind you, not the table itself) looks delicious!

  4. That looks like you have all my favourite brunch items there! When I stay over at friends' houses, breakfasting is always the highlight!

  5. This looked amazing and such a good idea too but I don't think either myself or friends would be up by 9am. It's a lovely idea to get everyone round for a leisurely catch up :)
