15 Mother’s Day Desserts


Be sweet to your mum and make her one of these fabulous Mother’s Day desserts.

Moms are the sweetest dose of sunshine we can ask for, right? And speaking of sunshine, have you ever noticed that moms and the sun are an awful lot alike? They’re at the center of a familial universe and they keep us all in orbit. Plus, they shine their light to help us grow and keep us happy. So it makes sense that Mother’s Day is celebrated in springtime, a season that welcomes a little more sunlight into our world, after a seemingly endless winter.

So when we think of Mother’s Day, we love the idea of surprising mom with a wonderful, spring dessert recipe, like a fruit-filled Mother’s Day cake or pie or light and bright lemon desserts for Mother’s Day. With a bounty of fresh fruits available this time of year, our grocery sections stocked with chocolate, and nothing but our imagination to limit our dessert fantasies, the options are endless. But to save you from an analysis paralysis, we thought we’d share our 15 favorite Mother’s Day dessert recipes with you.

Paula Deen - As a young girl growing up in Albany, Georgia, Paula Deen never dreamed she would become an American icon. As a young mother, Paula was living the American dream — married to her high school sweetheart and raising two adorable boys — when tragedy struck. Her parents died, her marriage failed and she began a prolonged battle with agoraphobia. With her boys in their teens and her family near homelessness, Paula took her last $200, reached deep inside her soul and started The Bag Lady, a home-based catering company that marked the start of Deen's professional cooking career. With sons Jamie and Bobby delivering lunch-and-love-in-a-bag, beginning in June 1989, Paula turned her life around by sharing what she knew best, traditional Southern cooking.
