Roasted Figs and Salted Caramel Meringues: Recipes for an indulgent Mother’s Day

Posted on 6 May, 2022

PSA: If you hadn’t realised, Mother’s Day is this Sunday 8 May.

But no need to panic! If you’re yet to nail that perfect experience or gift, there are plenty of ways you can whip up something special before Sunday—literally.

We’ve found six recipes that will level up your Mother’s Day experience—whether as a gift or as part of a celebration—and the best part is they’re all made on the barbeque. That’s right—the perfect excuse to get out the barbie in this beautiful autumn sun.

Barbeque looking a little worse for wear? No worries! The Weber Store at Burning Log in Fyshwick is your home for all things Weber, and has plenty of options for outdoor spaces great and small—they even have an electric range that’s perfect for apartments where gas barbeques are banned.

So, which recipe is right you’re your Mother’s Day celebration? Read on…

For the mum who…is isolating: Salted Caramel Meringues

It’s a tough but true fact that there will be many families celebrating apart this Sunday—and if your mum is isolating at home for whatever reason, these chewy and decadent salted caramel meringues are the perfect thing to leave on her doorstep.

For the mum who…likes the finer things: Roasted Figs

Roasted figs are one of those recipes that is unashamedly bougie. For those mothers (perhaps that’s even you…?) who love a levelled-up entrée—this is a winner.

For this recipe, we’re stuffing figs with goat’s cheese before wrapping them in prosciutto and glazing with pomegranate molasses. I swear I just heard a champagne cork pop…

Need a gift that isn’t food?

How about spoiling her with a gorgeous outdoor setting like this? Gizella four piece Outdoor Sofa Setting? Perhaps she’d love to add some zing to her existing setting—easily achieved with Burning Log’s range of elegant outdoor cushions.

For the mum who…has a sweet tooth: Giant Chocolate Chip Cookie

I mean…come on. That headline alone should have started to make mouths water.

Because really, what else should you give the mum who deserves the world? A cookie so enormous she has to eat it with a spoon—that’s what.

For the mum who…has an anti-sweet tooth: Lemonade Scones

We all have people in our lives who can’t stand sweet—and if that’s your mum (or you!), this is the perfect recipe for her.

Fluffy scones that can be served with butter or laden with jam and cream, they’re sure to hit the spot (without the sugar) and they’re great to make with little ones.

A gift that will keep mum toasty through winter, Burning Log’s range of outdoor fire tables are both a conversation starter and the perfect companion during the chilly months. The EcoSmart Cosmo Firetable and EcoSmart Stix Firepit are just two of the many options…

Mother’s Day picnic? Morning tea? Afternoon tea?

When you’re looking for a crowd-pleasing classic, this lemon coconut slice is a total no-brainer (and this recipe is seriously low effort!). A one mixing bowl, one pan wonder.
