Blueberry Snack Cake

This Blueberry Snack Cake is a wonderful breakfast (or snack) when paired with a cup of coffee or milk.

 I have a goal for the new year.  Now I am calling this a goal and not a resolution because it is something I would like to do, but I don’t know that it will really happen very often.

Whenever I make a breakfast for my family, I always make it the day before.  Mornings and I are not best friends.  Baking in the early morning hours is not a good idea when your body is still mostly asleep.  I’m sure I would burn things and cut my fingers all the way off if I tried.

My kids are not big cereal eaters…unless it is for a bedtime snack or dinner.  So, I love to make different breakfast baked goods for them to have in the morning.  The thing is that I have to make them the day before, so they can have them in the morning.

The other Saturday morning I had an urge to actually bake a breakfast cake in the morning.  Ok, so it was like 11 am…so technically it wasn’t morning, but I call anything before noon morning.   So, we had this cake for brunch.  My oldest son absolutely loved this cake.  He might have eaten the entire rest of the cake in less than a day.  Grant it, he is a growing teenager.  But he did ask me to bake another one as soon as he ate the last piece.

It is such an easy breakfast cake to put together.  So my goal is to make a hot breakfast at least once a week for my family…ok, let’s be realistic it might be more like once a month.

Baby steps :-)

      Well, so far am 0-0. I did make muffins last night for the kids to eat this morning. I get 1/2 a point for that effort right? I still have the rest of the month to keep trying for my goal 😉

    Yeah, we don’t bake breakfast either, unless we have company! I’m pretty sure I would burn something, too 😉 We just got a box of fresh blueberries and I keep thinking how nice it is to have fresh fruit in the winter … they would be even better in this cake!

    Hello Jocelyn, lovely blog and great recipes. I just noticed that you moved from blogger. I am just thinking about moving. Because you used Blogger and WordPress I would like to ask you about your experience of using both? Is WordPress harder to manage?

    Mmm, I love breakfast cakes for breakfast! I gotta tell you, when I first read the title of this post in my email, I misread it and thought it read Breakfast Snake cake, lol! I hope your 2014 is treating you beautifully so far! I can’t wait to see more breakfast goodies that you post!

    This breakfast cake is exactly what I have been looking for. Our supermarket had a huge special on blackberries and I couldn’t resist stocking up. But there are only so many fresh fruit bowls we can eat. I see a blackberry snack cake in our near future! Thanks, Jocelyn!

      Hot breakfast from the microwave works too…right? 😉 You are so right about the overnight rolls. All the work at night, with the hot rolls in the morning. That I could do!!!

    haha – it has been my goal to do hot breakfasts for a long time (my mom ALWAYS did growing up) but I’m a big failure. I’m just too tired! I need to make this, though – I’m sure we’d love it for breakfast or a snack!
