Blueberry Breakfast Cake

One of my family’s favorite things to eat for dinner is breakfast. It’s always a no-fail meal for the kids when we have some kind of breakfast food at dinnertime! And in the case of this Blueberry Breakfast Cake, we hit one right out of the park. The kids were in heaven! (“What? Cake for dinner, Mom?”) Talk about a thrill for a four year old.

Blueberry Breakfast BakeThis cake tastes like a yummy homemade blueberry muffin. And it doesn’t hurt that it comes with a little crumble on top! Yum!

We served our Blueberry Breakfast Cake with scrambled eggs and sausage. It was a perfect breakfast-for-dinner meal!
