On Valentine’s Day I’ll be waking up to my three loves at home with me. I plan on making their favorite breakfast, giving them each a special card and showing them how important they are to me. Well, you know, after I convince the teen to get out of bed … probably closer to midday. 

A Breakfast Tray for Valentine's Day #HallmarkCard #CollectiveBias #shop
A breakfast tray is the perfect way to start your loved one’s day off just right. This is what you need:

  • Their favorite breakfast food
  • Their favorite beverage/s
  • A Hallmark card
  • Napkin
  • Flowers
  • Don’t forget condiments and utensils if they need are needed.

A Valentine's Day breakfast tray

This simple breakfast idea is for Miss M and took about 30 minutes to put together. 

On a wood tray, I placed a lovely Hallmark card, a small bunch of flowers in her favorite color, a lace napkin, hot chocolate with heart-shaped marshmallows and a maple cinnamon scone (recipe below).

Maple Cinnamon Scones

Maple Cinnamon Scones

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup self-raising flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 cup butter (1 stick) + 1 tbs extra
  • 1 egg – separated
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup buttermilk
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tbs milk

Pre-heat oven to 400F.

Combine flour, baking powder and baking soda in a bowl. Chop in the butter and wearing gloves combine it completely with the flour so that it looks a little crumbly.

In a separate bowl combine the egg yolk, buttermilk. Add it to the dry ingredients and knead it all together forming a ball of dough.

You can roll this out into a circle and using a pizza cutter cut the dough into wedges, but I lightly sprayed baking dishes and added portions of the dough (filling each to a little less than half way).

Whisk the egg whites and brush over the top of the scones. Sprinkle the cinnamon over the top.

Bake for about 12 minutes.

Make the maple glaze: Whisk the powdered sugar, extra tablespoon of butter (softened), maple syrup, milk and vanilla in a bowl. If the glaze is a little too thick when you lift the whisk and doesn’t come off easily, add a little more milk, however if it’s a little too runny, add more powdered sugar.

Drizzle over the scones. Serve warm.
