So, I made my family cake for breakfast. What of it?

It’s full of blueberries, which are pretty much just plain magic in the health food world, so I’m not feeling guilty.

Also, muffins tend to be an acceptable breakfast and this is just one giant muffin baked in a cake pan.

In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together the butter, lemon zest, and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg and vanilla until well combined.
Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt in a small bowl.
Add the flour mixture a little at a time to the butter mixture, alternating with the buttermilk.

    I’m a firm believer in cake for breakfast.

    Or lunch.

    Or dinner.

    You get the drift.

    This might be just what my husband needs to survive the rest of the week without me! I’m headed out of state for a cousin’s wedding, and the only way he eats breakfast is if its 1) on the counter and 2) has blueberries in it. THANKS!!

    I made this for breakfast yesterday and there’s none left. There was also a request this morning for another batch of it! It is so good-the lemon and blueberry combo is fabulous!

    Think you could easily do this in muffin tins? That would make it easy for the hubby to grab as he’s headed out the door in the morning :) Wonder if I could add some protien powder to it…what do you think?

    Cake for breakfast makes you a goddess in my book. I love the warm, bursted, melty blueberries in this!

    Do you think I could use chocolate chips instead of blueberries? Thanks a lot. Emma
