With Valentine’s Day on the way, put some extra tender, loving care into your breakfasts.
If the way to your loved one’s heart is through the stomach, there’s no better way to start off this Valentine’s Day than with a homemade breakfast prepared with love.
Whether you’re whipping up a breakfast for a spouse with a sophisticated palate or trying to tempt the taste buds of your littlest loves, explore these ideas to get inspired.
• Red is the colour of love so build your menu around fresh strawberries or raspberries, which pair perfectly with French toast or crepes, and can even dress up a simple cereal.
• For a more sensible menu, opt for a fruity berry smoothie or a parfait layered with fresh fruit, low-fat yogurt and granola. Add a hint of loving indulgence by sprinkling dark chocolate shavings on top.
• Show your affection with a plate of these colourful Cocoa-Kissed Red Velvet Pancakes featuring rich 100 per cent cocoa, buttermilk and fresh berries. Heart-shaped cookie cutters lend a special touch to these fluffy, flavoursome pancakes. Add sweet garnishes like powdered sugar and berries for a sensational way to say “I love you”.

Tip: If using pancake or cookie cutters, be sure to coat with oil so that the pancakes don’t stick. Place the cutters in the pan and pour the batter into them. Remove the cutters before flipping.
