Father’s Day is always the best day to shower the big guy with all the love and care you’ve got. And what better way to do it than by making dad something delicious that will delight him and fill his stomach at the same time?
Whether he has a sweet tooth or is simply a food lover, these edible delights will surely do the trick. So, pick the one that suits him best and wait for the sighs of contentment to start happening.
The good old rocky road never goes out of style, especially if your dad has a sweet tooth. It’s easy to make, has only a handful of ingredients and doesn’t require any baking at all. It’s pretty budget-friendly, too. Once it’s done, let it set then break it into pieces and pack into an attractive glass jar. Here’s the full recipe.
If your dad thinks he’s a BBQ master and can often be found out the back with the smell of sausages grilling in the air and a bottle of beer in his hand, these BBQ cupcakes will be a sure hit for him. No, they aren’t cooked on the BBQ – but they’re decorated to look like a BBQ grill with hamburgers and sausages on top! You can create your own beautiful edible arrangement or follow this recipe.
Do you know the best time to give dad a delicious treat on Father’s Day? It’s as soon as he wakes up! And nothing beats putting all his favourite breakfast things into these wonderful breakfast pies that you can make yourself. They will undoubtedly wake up the food lover in him in an instant. This recipe makes pretty much everything from scratch but if you don’t have the 3 hours prep and 1 hour cooking time needed, with a little creative thinking you’ll find plenty of shortcuts to reduce the time (after all, who needs to make their own pastry and baked beans when there are perfectly good options just waiting at the supermarket!).
Spicy miso chicken wings with Japanese potato salad
If dad isn’t so much of a breakfast person, why not treat him to a delicious lunch or dinner instead? Here we’ll let his taste buds travel to Japan with some spicy miso chicken wings. Paired with a delectable bowl of potato salad with Japanese mayo (Kewpie), this truly is a meal to remember. Check out the full recipe here.
Coffee and hazelnut layer cake
This edible delight will be a perfect gift for your coffee-lover dad. Who doesn’t love a layer cake, anyway? But this time, add a little modern touch by combining it with hazelnut meal for added texture and flavour. Top it with carefully designed coffee cream, and there you have it. He’ll definitely be heading back for more than just one slice. Take a look at the full recipe here.
Meatballs in beer sauce
If dad is more of a beer kind of guy than a coffee connoisseur, here’s your opportunity to turn his favourite beer into a delicious sauce to smother over some meatballs. Serve this with some piping hot rice or pasta, and his heart and tummy will be full. This recipe is easy to make, and if you want to make it even easier, you can buy ready-made meatballs. The recipe calls for an 11-ounce bottle of beer – that’s about 355 ml.
Edible tackle box
Here's another fantastic edible arrangement to delight the dads with a sweet tooth. And it's also an excellent DIY gift to make if you’re short on time but want to make sure you have a memorable gift to give Dad on Father's Day. Fisherman or not – any dad that enjoys a sugar rush will enjoy this one!
Just grab a bag of gummy worms and other candies he likes and arrange them in a tackle box (either the real thing or a craft organiser – basically a small-ish box with compartments). The kids can join in the fun, too! Don’t forget to get creative - write or print a personalised label and name your candies after something that’s relevant to him! If dad is into fishing, you can get some ideas here.
Pretty much all dads love a pie and here’s another one to try. This time we’re surprising him by making a pie that’s filled with delicious Bolognese sauce. Now we’re talking! Pretty much you just make a Bolognese sauce, pour it into a pasty case, top with more pastry, brush it with egg wash and bake. Sprinkle with some extra parmesan cheese before serving and watch dad’s eyes glow. Get the full recipe here.
