Good Morning Blueberry Cake

Cold Cereal.  Instant Oatmeal.  Yogurt.  REPEAT! Blah. Blah. Blah. Blah! Tell me I am not the only one who gets in this breakfast rut?!

My husband often hints that he’d love something different, and THIS is always what he is hinting for.  On his Birthday, Father’s Day, or any special occasion, this is his breakfast of choice.  Just the other day he talked me in to making his favorite breakfast, and I decided it was about time I shared it.

Good Morning Blueberry CakeBasic Batter…

Add fresh blueberries {okay, okay, mine were frozen}…

Yes, you are going to have to work for this one a little…But it is going to be oh so worth it…{And YES, I used heart shaped baking dishes.  Give me a break.  This was for my husband…}
Bake patiently…
And start your day with one very happy family…{This wonderful cake is also perfect for a picnic treat at the park}

I love breakfast.  I think it’s my favorite meal of the day.  Have you tried the Best Ever Banana Muffin recipe yet?!

Recipe Notes

* Sprinkle a little sugar on top of the cake batter before putting it in the oven.   Then again right before serving.  Delicious.

*The batter will be thick.

*Extra blueberries never hurt anyone.

      I love the little heart bowls. The muffins look fabulous as well. I will have to talk my wife into trying them out. She does a little more baking then I do. At least a little more that is edible. :-) Thanks for the great recipe!!

      Breakfast rut at our house too, only it's granola, toast, and maybe, MAYBE a limited amount of sugar cereal. And I don't like granola (yes, I know, bad example), so it's toast most days.
