Easy Brunch Recipes

Thursday 12 November 2020

I am here today with a beautiful variety of recipes for Brunch from the people at Maldon Salt. Each one is gorgeously simple to make from home.

These are perfect for this time of lockdown going into the holidays. Most serve just 2 people but can be easily doubled or tripled to serve more if you are lucky enough to be able to socialise with more than two people.

If not, then they are the perfect size for one or two!  All delicious. All simple.  All easy and quick to make!  Enjoy! 

Fruit is always a welcome brunch dish.  Why not enjoy both of these recipes showcasing fresh fruit!  Figs and Honey make the perfect combination!  Roasting Peaches and or Plums in Honey is also a fabulous way to showcase beautiful stone fruits!

Both recipes are delicious served with yogurt and chunky granola!

Proper Porridge

Printable Recipe

Serves 1

50g porridge oats (2/3 cup)
350ml milk or water, or a mixture of the two (scant 1 1/2 cups)
Greek yoghurt thinned with a little milk and Clear honey, to serve
Pinch of Maldon Salt


1. Put 50g porridge oats in a saucepan, pour in 350ml milk or water and sprinkle in a pinch of salt. Bring to the boil and simmer for 4-5 minutes, stirring from time to time and watching carefully that it doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pan.

2. Or you can try this in a microwave. Mix the porridge oats, milk or water and a pinch of salt in a large microwave proof bowl, then microwave on High for 5 minutes, stirring halfway through. Leave to stand for 2 minutes before eating.

3. To serve, pour into bowls, spoon Greek yogurt, thinned with a little milk, on top and drizzle with honey and a pinch of Maldon salt.  
Who doesn't enjoy a lovely stack of pancakes!  Serve these hot with butter, maple syrup and a sprinkle of fresh and tasty berries!
Blueberry Pancakes
Printable Recipe

serves 4

135g plain flour (scant 1 cup)
1 tsp baking powder
Half tsp Maldon salt
2 tbsp caster sugar
130ml milk (generous 1/2 cup)
1 large egg, lightly beaten
2 tbsp melted butter for cooking
To serve – blueberries & maple syrup 


1. Sift the flour, baking powder, salt and caster sugar into a large bowl. In a separate bowl or jug, lightly whisk together the milk and egg, then whisk in the melted butter.

2. Pour the milk mixture into the flour mixture and, using a fork, beat until you have a smooth batter. Any lumps will soon disappear with a little mixing. Let the batter stand for a few minutes.

3. Heat a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat and add a knob of butter. When it’s melted, add a ladle of batter (or two if your frying pan is big enough to cook two pancakes at the same time). It will seem very thick but this is how it should be. Wait until the top of the pancake begins to bubble, then turn it over and cook until both sides are golden brown and the pancake has risen to about 1cm/½in thick.

4. Repeat until all the batter is used up. You can keep the pancakes warm in a low oven, but they taste best fresh out the pan.

5. Serve with maple syrup, blueberries and a pinch of Maldon!

People just love having eggs for breakfast.  Especially at the weekend when they are looking for something a bit heartier!  Why not settle down with one of these incredibly tasty options!
