Father’s Day Baking Ideas

This Sunday is Father’s Day, it has caught me a little off guard this year as it seemed very early in the month and I was sure that like Mother’s Day that it was the second Sunday of the month! If you have made the same mistake and don’t have time to hit the shops then you might find some of these ideas handy and what Dad wouldn’t love a gift that was made by his darling child…

1. Savoury Food. Dad’s seem to love savoury stuff, I guess it’s more ‘blokey’ and sustaining than cupcake – not that there’s anything wrong with a cupcake, especially if you can add bacon to that cupcake!

2. Bake Dad a batch of biscuits, make him a cuppa and take him the Sunday papers.

3. Make Dad some special bread as part of a Father’s Day brunch.

4. Bake him a cake and help him eat it!

And if none of these cakes take your fancy, why not try out the chocolate beer cake I made for Father’s Day last year or check out the recipe index there is plenty more inspiration there.

Happy Father’s Day to all you wonderful Father’s! Mel and I also want to wish our own Dad’s a Happy Father’s Day xox
