Looking for some inspiration for a Mother’s Day breakfast? Look no further. Disney’s Cookabout has that covered with their easy to follow recipes.

This French Toast and Banana Breakfast Skewers with Whipped Yoghurt by Christine Capendale will make your mom’s day.


80 g mascarpone cheese 

100 g low fat yoghurt 

25 ml honey 

Pinch of ground cinnamon 

2 large eggs 

Small pinch of salt 

50 ml low fat milk 

2,5 ml vanilla essence 

4 slices brown bread, crusts removed 

10 ml olive oil 

2 bananas 

Berries in season (blueberries, raspberries, strawberries) 

4 bamboo skewers


Place the mascarpone cheese, yoghurt, 20 ml of the honey and a pinch of cinnamon in a small bowl and beat with an electric beater until whipped and thick. 

Spoon into a small bowl and place in the fridge for about 30 minutes. 

Whisk the eggs, pinch of salt, milk and the vanilla essence together in a small bowl. 

Heat half of the olive oil in a non-stick saucepan on medium heat. 

Dip 2 slices of bread in the egg mixture, remove and place in the hot pan. Turn occasionally with a spatula (or use 2 forks). 

Fry until cooked and browned on both sides. 

Place on paper towel to drain any excess oil. Cook the remaining bread in the rest of the olive oil.

Cut each slice of French toast in 4 and thread them onto the skewers, alternating with slices of banana, blueberries and/or raspberries. You can make up your own combinations. 

Place four skewers on a plate (grouped as pairs) and drizzle with the rest of the honey. 

Serve with the whipped yoghurt on the side. Garnish with more fresh berries.
