Strawberries and Cream Angel Food Cake - a sweet and delicious dessert filled with a creamy layer and topped with strawberries. It's so simple and so delicious!

Mother’s Day is right around the corner! Are you ready?

I always stress out a little bit because I never know what to get my mom. Fortunately, we have similar style and taste and I usually end up buying her something I’d want for my own home knowing she will love it too. 😉

Like many of you, we not only shower our moms with love and thoughtful gifts, but we also make sure mom gets amazing food that day. With that in mind, I wanted to share with you two delicious recipes inspired by a recent trip to HEB (my go-to grocery store here in Texas), to help you celebrate your own MOMentous and amazing mothers on Mother’s Day. I know many of you do breakfast in bed, so the first recipe is one that I think your mom will LOVE on the special day. They’re Breakfast Biscuit Cups and they are simple to make and so tasty!

Breakfast Biscuit Cups - filled with sausage, eggs, potatoes, cheese and more! So simple you'll want to make these for breakfast all the time!

Here is what you’ll need to make them:

BREAKFAST BISCUIT CUPS:

INGREDIENTS:

  • ½ bag of Jimmy Dean Sausage Crumbles
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • ½ cup milk 
  • ½ cup frozen cubed hash brown potatoes, thawed
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 large eggs
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 TB water
  • 1 can (16.3 ounces) large refrigerated flaky biscuits
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • ½ cup shredded Colby-Monterey Jack cheese
  • Muffin Tin

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Add sausage to a skillet with oil. Cook until warmed up and add flour, pepper and salt. Add ½ cup milk and bring to a boil. Stir until thickened and set aside.
  3. In another skillet cook potatoes and butter until tender.
  4. In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, garlic salt and milk. Add to potatoes and cook until eggs are almost done.
  5. Press biscuits into greased muffin tin. If too thick, peel off a layer of the biscuit and fit in. Push onto bottom and up sides. Spread melted butter onto biscuits.
  6. Spoon egg mixture, sausage and cheese into cups.
  7. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until golden. Let cool for a few minutes and enjoy warm.

These were so simple to make and can be easily changed up. I think next time we’ll try bacon instead of sausage!!

In case you do breakfast with your own families, I also have another recipe to share that is perfect in case you are meeting up with your moms later in the day. It’s tradition in our family for my dad and all the kids to make Sunday dinner on Mother’s Day. We all divvy up the assignments and I’m usually assigned dessert. I wanted to think of something I knew my mom would love so I came up with this Strawberries and Cream Angel Food Cake. You guys – it is AMAZING!!! It was simple to make and looked gorgeous!

Here is what you’ll need to make it:

    I am always making your recipes and sharing them with friends and family.
    Thanks for all the hard work.

    1. Thank you so much, Rachel!! I’m so happy that you are trying recipes for your family and friends. I hope you’ve liked them as much as we do:)

  2. It’s so hard to choose my favorite Mother’s Day memory because they are all great. However, one year my girls gave me tickets to see Norah Jones because she is one of my favorite singers. They wanted to give me something that was just for me. It was incredible!!

    1. Wow!! That is a great gift!! You could tell that they put thought into it and wanted to give you something that you would really enjoy! Thanks for sharing:)

  3. My wonderful mom passed away a year and a half ago. I would give anything just to have one more Mothers Day with her. She was truly the best mom a daughter could have. She is constantly on my mind. Everyone please don’t take your moms for granted. Treat her like everyday is Mothers Day.

    1. I am so sorry to hear that, Lisa!! That is great advice! So grateful that we can hold memories close to our hearts!!

  4. I almost went to work for HEB out of college, LOL. Love the grocery store! Mother’s Day memory – favorite pancakes made by my little girls.

    1. I love it too!! That’s a great memory:) I love anything that my kids make or do for me, they’re the best gifts!

  5. This will be my first Mother’s Day as a mom but I was pregnant last year and my husband surprised me with tulips and a cheesecake!

  6. 5 stars
    Hi, one year my mom & I made lots of cinnamon rolls & pies for a church function, but even though it was kind of a working mothers day, we were together the whole day doing what we loved most, chatting & baking, thanks for the chance to win !

  7. Hi, I’m making the cake for my moms birthday tomorrow, can I put it together today and refrigerate over night ? And out the strawberries on tomorrow?

  8. Do you make the pudding beforehand or just add the pudding mix and mix it with the milk and vanilla?

  9. 1 star
    Really disappointed with this recipe… I tried making this for my bf’s 30th birthday and I don’t really understand the need for 1.5 cups of milk. The cream mixture was like pancake batter. It just completely soaked through the cake.

  10. I know this is an old post. I made this and it was so good on the angel food cake. I was curious, do you think this filling would taste good between the layers of a white cake and then covered with a light buttercream frosting? Wasn’t sure if I added some strawberries into the filling between 2 cakes if that would work well? Thanks so much!
