At Three Sisters Bake, breakfast is not only the most important meal of the day, it is also the most exciting!

As sisters, we often get asked how we manage to work together without falling out. The truth is, while we do have the odd disagreement, when it comes to the important things, we always seem to agree. We have very similar outlooks on life, business and, most importantly, food. One of these being that we all LOVE, cherish and adore breakfast time.

We can often go through a busy day at the café without seeing one another very much, but the one time of day we always spend together is breakfast. We were brought up to eat breakfast as a family at the kitchen table, even if it was just a five minute stop on the way to the school bus. Our breakfasts invariably consisted of cereal, toast or porridge.

It was not until we started travelling after university and all independently ventured to Australia that our eyes were opened to the full potential of breakfast as a truly exciting meal. Anyone who has ever visited Australia will testify that the café culture is quite phenomenal. Every tiny café in the suburbs of Sydney and Melbourne seems to have the most exciting and innovative brunch menus.

Growing up in Scotland, the extent of our experience of breakfast menus was bacon rolls or a full fried breakfast. Our eyes popped out of our heads when faced with menus full of homemade granolas, stacks of pancakes with berries, maple syrup, bacon and bananas, rainbow-coloured tropical fruit salads, fresh yoghurt, corn cakes, poached eggs with avocado, smoothies and juices containing every fruit imaginable and, of course, amazing coffee!

People return from Australia full of a love of food and great coffee or with a burning desire to open their own coffee shop and claim a piece of Aussie-inspired café culture for themselves. That is certainly what happened to us. The recipes in this chapter reflect the huge influence of our travels in Australia while incorporating a number of signature Scottish flavours and ingredients. -Nichola
