Lemony Blueberry Breakfast Cake

Posted on

This cake is really something else. So much that Joe didn’t even realize there was lemon in it at first. He is someone who says he doesn’t really like lemon! Gotcha, jokes on you yet again, dude! This cake I found as I was pinning away on pinterest a few weeks ago. I kept saying, I’m going to make this, I’m going to make this, but then never got around to it. I think it was for the fear that Joe and I would eat the whole thing in one weekend…

Do you tend to not make things just because you know they won’t stand a chance in your house for more than 5 minutes?

Yeah, that’s kinda what happened with this breakfast cake.

I love how the word breakfast in front of cake makes you feel ok about eating cake for breakfast!
