A Perfect Homemade Sunday Brunch

A Perfect Homemade Sunday Brunch

If there one thing that we cannot avoid when reuniting with friends on a holiday, it’s brunch! Manchester offers a lot of delicious brunches if you want to eat out, but as Corinne wanted a waffle maker for a long time and just ordered one, we thought it was a good time for homemade brunch and try new recipes!

Our Favourite Sunday Brunch Recipes


As we had just received Corinne’s waffle maker we had to make waffles. And we had a specific recipe in mind! We also wanted to make pancakes, but pancakes are often heavy on the stomach, and as we were already making waffles we thought we could try a new type of pancake: Courgette Pancakes. The last recipe we wanted to try was a ice-cream recipe! But it’s so delicious and easy to make that we thought it was best to keep that recipe for another time, and give this recipe its own blogpost 😉

Healthy Courgette Pancakes



  • 55g self-raising flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 courgettes


  1. Mix the flour, eggs & milk together in a bowl.
  2. Grate your courgettes and add them to the batter. Mix well, so the courgette is well coated in batter.
  3. In a hot & greased frying pan add 2 tablespoons of the mixture and flatten a little.
  4. Once bubbles start popping at the surface of your pancake and the bottom of your pancake is brown flip it (approximately 2 min)
  5. Cook the other side for an extra 2 minutes

Serve with some rocket, roasted cherry tomatoes & baked beans.



Light, yet delicious, Super Fluffy Waffles


  • 125g self-self-rasing flour
  • 25 sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 20g melted butter
  • 125cl milk
  • Salt


  1. Mix in a bowl the flour, the sugar, the egg yolk and the melted butter
  2. Slowly add the milk to the batter and mix until fully incorporated
  3. Whip the egg whites to a light mousse then mix it with the batter
  4. Put a ladleful of dough on the waffle maker and let cook each waffle for three to four minutes.

Serve with strawberries, ice-cream & golden sirup.



What is you favourite brunch made of? Do you like mixing up savory & sweet items?


See you soon, love

    I’m definitely more of a ‘sweet’ girl myself, and these look absolutely incredible! I actually had a waffle instead of a birthday cake one year.. 😂🤷🏼‍♀️ I didn’t realise they were so easy to make though, I might give them a try myself!

    Love Sunday brunches! I can totally enjoy family time around the breakfast table. Those recipes look yum! Products that I like are dishes with eggs. Salmon and fresh baked bread. Croissants. Fruit…

  25. October 17, 2017 / 1:37 am

    I’m totally sold. The ice cream atop of waffles with strawberries. I could’ve never thought to prepare it all this way. I will be attempting soon.

  26. October 17, 2017 / 1:59 am

    Everything there does look beautiful. I do love the look of it and the waflles just makes my mouth water. I am curious as to the type of soup that you have there.

  27. October 17, 2017 / 7:06 pm

    I prefer savory over sweet for breakfast. However, if I’m eating breakfast for dinner I prefer sweet!

  28. October 18, 2017 / 3:27 am

    I love brunching. And homemade brunch is always the cherry on the top. All food looks scrumptious. I am digging into that Healthy Courgette Pancakes.
