#SundaySupper: Mother’s Day

It’s only fitting that today’s #SundaySupper is celebrating Mother’s Day. A big thank you to Camilla of Culinary Adventures with Camilla for “working” on this holiday to make sure the rest of us have our act together. Looking at the list of offerings today, most of us think of sweets when it comes to celebrating Mom. Be sure to scroll past my recipe to check them all out!

IMG_2338Today is my first Mother’s Day! I’ve always known I wanted to be a mom and so far it’s been everything I could have dreamed of and more! Everyday I am thankful to have the opportunity to stay home with my little man and watch him grow and learn.

When I tried to decide on what to make for today my mom told me to simply make something I like. Well that wasn’t very helpful – pizza, pasta, breakfast, Mexican? I decided on breakfast (I could eat breakfast any and every meal of the day) because when I think Mother’s Day, I think brunch.

When I think brunch, I think mimosas. I won’t be partaking in that alcoholic breakfast drink this year though because I am thrilled to finally announce that next year I’ll be celebrating today as a mother of two! That’s right, my little man will become a big brother in early November!

To celebrate the occasion I decided to turn the classic mimosa into a waffle!

Mimosa Waffles


  • 1 1/2 C flour
  • 1 C white whole wheat flour
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 3 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 C vegetable oil
  • 3/4 C prosecco
  • 1 3/4 C milk
  • 1 1/4 tsp orange extract


  1. In a large bowl whisk together all dry ingredients.
  2. In a separate bowl whisk together the wet ingredients.
  3. Combine wet and dry ingredients and pour into a hot waffle iron and cook until golden. Serve with whipped cream and fresh orange slices, if desired.

    1. Thank you, Emily. I hope you enjoy! If you don’t have orange extract and don’t want to buy it you can use an equal amount of orange zest. I’d probably put a little vanilla extract in too though.

  1. Congratulations, Lauren! That is great news. I love that you took the flavors of a mimosa and made them into a waffle. Perfect brunch recipe! Happy Mother’s Day!

  2. Happy first Mother’s Day, Lauren!!! Time to pour the prosecco into the waffles indeed =) Cheers!

  3. Oh, wonderful post and even better news!! Congratulations. How far apart will they be?? Mine are 18 months apart…which was completely unplanned. I have to dig out my waffle maker now. I don’t think I’ve seen it since we moved. Boo.

    1. Thanks, Cam! They’ll be 16months apart (potentially to the day!). I was aiming for 18mo as that’s what my brother and I are and we get along very well. I’m not complaining though and we’re berry excited.
      You could probably take this idea and make pancakes instead but waffles are my favorite. 🙂

  4. Happy 1st Mother’s Day, Lauren and a BIG Congrats on the new addition on the way! Great idea for these waffles. They sound wonderful!
