Start making Mom's brunch day with thick slices of brioche. You can get great loaves at places like the Met Market... though it's probably not as good as wherever the Yankees shop.
Let the slices sit while you mix the dry ingredients (brown sugar, cinnamon, etc.) with the wet (eggs, milk, Mom's tears of joy that you're actually doing this).
Just like any t-shirt Kate Upton might wear, the brioche needs a good long soak, so give it one.
Now it's time to start cooking! Lightly brown some butter in a pan or on a griddle, then get that not-quite-toast-yet in there.
This is what it should like when it's ready (for not you, okay?!?).
Get out the rhubarb butter, which you've already made by "cooking the hell" out of some rhubarb and sugar (Oh yeah, cook the hell out of some rhubarb and sugar).
Use the aforementioned butter (or some store bought jam/preserves if you're lazy and you want to disappoint her again) to make her plate look as pretty as she definitely still is.
Now it's ready to go on the plate...
...and get covered in real real maple syrup!
And for extra credit (or maybe to help you get through the day, we don't know your mom) pair the toast w/ a refreshing cocktail like Mistral's Old Cuban.
Just shake up some muddled mint, syrup, lime, rum & bitters, and strain using any old kitchen strainer.
Add a mint leaf and a splash of Champagne... or just use it to make her a mimosa, you aforementioned lazy piece of...
And that's all she wrote! Now serve it up to Mom, let her enjoy her big day, then guilt the hell out of your siblings for at least the next 364.
