How to impress with a seriously easy but delicious breakfast

As I am newly married I thought I had better up my game a bit and be a good wife! So yesterday I pulled out all the stops and made breakfast in bed – quite a feat when my better-half usually gets up before 7am!

Bleary-eyed, I fumbled through my trusty Dairy Diary, donned my apron (looking very glamorous over my M&S pjs) and rustled up these rather fabulous Danish Pastries (sshhh he’ll never know how easy they are to make!)

They really are a very easy treat
for a weekend breakfast, I can
highly recommend them!
