Let's be honest, who doesn't love breakfast in bed? I wanted to share these super easy breakfast recipes with you because we all deserve to treat ourselves at the weekend. I'm not the most patient of cooks so I promise that these are incredibly quick and simple to follow. Let me know how you get on!

One-Cup American Pancakes

This is just the basic one up pancake recipe, feel free to jazz it up with bacon, fruit or chocolate chips.

What you'll need:

  • 1 large egg

  • 1 cup of self-raising flour

  • 1 cup of milk

  • Pinch of sea salt

  • Your chosen topping


  • Crack egg into a large mixing bowl

  • Add milk, flour and pinch of sea salt

  • Whisk until you have a smooth batter (if adding fruit, fold in after you've combined the ingredients)

  • Heat 1/2 tablespoon of oil in a large frying pan on a medium heat

  • Ladle in your batter, 1 ladle = 1 pancake

  • Leave to cook for about 1-2 minutes, when you see little bubbles it's time to flip!

  • Once the pancakes are golden on both sides remove and repeat the process with the rest of your batter

  • Now add your toppings of choice and enjoy!

Avocado, Scrambled Egg, Smoked Salmon Bagel

A slightly messier recipe compared to the pancakes, but trust me this breakfast is worth the extra washing up!

What you'll need:

  • Bagels

  • Ripe Avocado

  • Smoked Salmon

  • Eggs

  • Milk

  • Salt and pepper

  • Lemon


  • Slice your bagels in half and pop them in the toaster ready to toast a bit later

  • Whisk the eggs and milk together and season with salt and pepper

  • Take the avocado, slice in half and remove the stone (please be careful!)

  • Scoop the avocado into a bowl and mash

  • Get the bagels toasting

  • Heat a knob of butter in a small saucepan (be careful not to brown the butter)

  • Pour the egg mix into the saucepan and leave to sit for about 20 seconds

  • Stir the egg with a wooden spoon, remembering to lift and fold away from the bottom. Once the eggs are softly set they are ready

  • Spread the avocado onto the bagels, spoon on the scrambled egg and lay smoked salmon on top, season with a squeeze of lemon and hey presto you have a very tasty breakfast!
