Who says that cake can’t be breakfast? This recipe for Blueberry Oatmeal Cake is a crowd-pleasing breakfast recipe.
Cake? For breakfast? Sure, it sounds a little wacky but this breakfast cake is perfect for mornings. Just say yes, and whip up this easy Blueberry Oatmeal Cake. It’s a tender, moist cake dotted with juicy blueberries.
When blueberries are in season (July and August in many areas!), this is fantastic with fresh berries. For a slightly tarter take on things, try wild blueberries in it. And when blueberries aren’t in season, frozen ones work perfectly in this recipe too. So really, you can enjoy this breakfast cake all year round.
Better yet? This is a quick and easy recipe — you can have it on the table in about 30 minutes. Score!
And seriously, what kid won’t cheer when you announce that breakfast today is … cake?
You’ll be the family hero. Or the coolest mom around. Or just an awesome kitchen wizard.
