Okay, don’t be intimidated by that number in my post title. While there are 150 favorite gluten-free Mother’s Day brunch recipes included here, two of the links—from my Bountiful Bread Basket series—make up 100 of them! Whew, right? This updated post is admittedly more than a bit late, but many of this recipes can be made at the last minute. Skim the page and see which ones strike your fancy!
Now what do you think of when you think of the ideal gluten-free Mother’s Day brunch recipes? And, incidentally, brunch is definitely more this mother’s speed. I do not like getting up early! The brunch that lingers into the early afternoon. That’s totally my thing! In fact, that timing could be my only Mother’s Day “gift” and I’d be thrilled! But I digress.
When you think of the perfect gluten-free Mother’s Day brunch recipes, I’m guessing gluten-free pancakes and waffles come to mind for sure. Maybe French Toast. Cinnamon rolls. What else? Egg recipes like muffins, quiches, and casseroles. Scones. (They’re not just for tea parties.) Special beverages like smoothies and morning cocktails. Even desserts perhaps? I thought I’d share some ideas with you all for tomorrow, whether you’re entertaining a crew, two, or one.
Even making a single recipe from this roundup could make Mother’s Day special for the mother figure(s) in your life! Maybe that’s your Mom, someone else who “mothers” you, or you yourself, for all your “mothering.” We are so lucky to have many mothers among us. Some have human children of their own, some have human children of others that they “look after,” some have those adorable furry babies—dogs, cats, horses, and more—that get their love and attention.
Because Son is off on his own—and has been for a good while—I’m in the stage of life where I’m often mothering Mr. GFE—and more than he’d like. After all, he didn’t marry me to be his mother. Until recently, I was also mothering our dear collie, Sonny. Sadly, Sonny left us two weeks ago. Yes, one of the brightest lights in our life has gone out. so we’re now waiting for the next rescue pup to find us like Sonny did. They always do, and that always helps temper the grief of the last loss.

~ Volcano Pancake This recipe seems to have so many different names. Whether you call it Yorkshire Pudding, German Puff Pancake, Dutch Baby, or “that wonderful thing you make” (as one gfe friend calls it), just make it and enjoy it! No two Volcano Pancakes are alike so don’t be surprised if yours doesn’t look like the photo below, especially since the one shown below was a “mistake.” I accidentally baked the pancake shown at 450F for 15 minutes versus 400F for 30 minutes. Thank goodness my nose told me it was done because I had no idea I had set the temperature incorrectly. I don’t recommend the higher temperature necessarily, but the results can turn out just fine if you’re not awake when you begin cooking, or even if you’re in a hurry perhaps and intentionally use the higher temperature!
