Get Christmas Day off to the best possible start with our 5 favourite Christmas breakfast ideas. Christmas is a day for indulgence, and we’re giving you a great excuse to forego your normal bowl of porridge or jammy toast and instead feast on waffles, French toast or our very own Cinnamon Buns! You’re bound to find something you like the look of in this list of Christmas Day breakfasts, so what are you waiting for? Read on...
We call this ‘the breakfast of champions’ - our very own Iced Cinnamon Buns! Imagine a warm, sticky cinnamon bun on Christmas morning while you open up the first of your presents. There really is no better way to start the day! The best thing about the buns is that they can be made in advance, and then frozen once in their tins. This means all you need to do is pop them in the fridge on Christmas Eve to let them defrost, then in the morning return them to room temperature before baking as normal on Christmas morning.
While making your own Cinnamon Buns might sound like a daunting task, we make it really easy with our baking kits. Each kit comes with all of the dry ingredients already weighed out and pre-measured, meaning you just need to add milk and butter. We even include the tins you need to bake the buns in!
You can now pick up a box of our Iced Cinnamon Buns from the Bake Shop.
French Toast makes a wonderful breakfast on any day of the year, but especially Christmas Day! If you’ve not heard of French Toast before, you might know it by another name - eggy bread. It’s basically thick slices of bread, dipped in beaten egg and then fried in butter and topped with sugar, syrup or one of your own favourite toppings.
We love the ‘Two Peas and Their Pod’ recipe for French Toast as it’s really simple to make and can be adapted for any taste. For a festive Christmas Day breakfast, keep it classic by adding cinnamon. If you’re craving something at least a little bit healthy, add some winter berries. Or to really set yourself up for the day, choose some bacon and maple syrup for a truly indulgent treat!
Now here’s a blast from the past… who remembers Pop Tarts? They were the ultimate cheat breakfast, made from a pastry crust filled with jam and then a sickly icing on top - all you needed to do was toast them and then eat! But if you’re a baking lover, we’ve got an even better Christmas Day breakfast for you, thanks to this Homemade Strawberry Pop Tarts recipe by The Spruce Eats!
Whilst it’s not quite as simple as the original Pop Tart (you have to do more than just take these out the packet and pop them in the toaster!) they’re still really fun to make using a simple shortcrust pastry and shop-bought jam. The best thing is, they taste even better than original Pop Tarts and you can adjust them to suit your own tastes! Why not adapt them for your Christmas Day breakfast by filling them with mincemeat instead of jam, or topping them with a cinnamon flavoured icing for another festive treat?
We’ve got another sweet treat for you now, in the form of delicious breakfast waffles! Now, this recipe does require you to have a waffle iron, but once you have one, you’ll be able to make fresh waffles whenever you want to! Our favourite recipe for Breakfast Waffles is this one by the Stay at Home Mum, as the waffles are really simple to make and you’re likely to have all the ingredients you need all ready to go.
Just like the French Toast, you can top your waffles with delicious toppings including winter berries and fruit, bacon and syrup or ice cream! Go on… it is Christmas…
Now if there’s something that screams Christmas, it’s gingerbread. And if there’s something that screams breakfast, it’s pancakes. So what makes possibly the best Christmas Day breakfast idea ever? Gingerbread Pancakes, of course!
We love this Cookie and Kate recipe for Whole Wheat Gingerbread Pancakes as it’s so festive, thanks to the addition of ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg in the pancake batter. This recipe is also really easily adapted if you’re following a dairy, egg or gluten-free diet, as well as a vegan one too! The published topping is an orange cream cheese, but it’s also just as delicious when topped with syrup or fruit. What a treat for Christmas Day!
