Perfect round-up! I'm seriously addicted to breakfast breads of all varieties (go figure), so this compilation is like finding a little slice of heaven.

Thanks also for including the Lime French Toast recipe in your list. It's a keeper. Happy 2009 Mother's Day to mothers everywhere!

Thanks for all those delightful links.
Unfortunately, I'll have to look at them in detail later as I'll be leaving tomorrow morningon a short break.

Hey there! Thanks for linking my Cinnamon Swirl French Toast. I agree, it would be a great Mother's Day breakfast.

I would love to have those pancakes with the beries.

oh wow delicious round up. Pity I m not a mum yet and have to make these myself :)

Abby said...

If Brad saw this roundup he'd eat the screen. His favorite things in the WORLD are pancakes.

I'll have to try some of these with more blueberry syrup!

Lisa Johnson said...

Wow! This is the perfect post! I hadn't realized how long it's been since I made French Toast. I always make waffles or pancakes. Maybe it's time to get back to basics. : )

We have deferred Mother's Day brunch for a few days so everyone can attend - now I have a few more days to get hungry as I look at these delicious links!

Wendy said...

Wow. Drool.

Mother's Day was a couple of months ago over here but, hell, I don't care. Shall make my Mum one of these next time she visits!

Maris said...

Susan, now that you posted these I might be making brunch for the next 12 weekends :)

Those pancakes look killer. I know, I'm too late for Mother's Day, but here's a suggestion for next year... or next weekend :) - Dutch babies.

Jude said...

I'm a bit late for Mother's Day but this sounds like an every weekend morning kind of post for me. Thanks for compiling this list! Bookmarked :)
