Cake for breakfast?! Yes please! With this applesauce muffin cake you can have cake for breakfast!
This is a great breakfast for kids because kids love being able to eat cake for breakfast!
My family loves muffins. We make them at least once a week and always have our freezer well stocked with them for easy breakfasts and snacks.
I recently decided to change muffins up a little and turn them into a breakfast cake. It turned out delicious!
This breakfast cake was also easy to make gluten free by using a gluten free flour blend. I don’t usually like gluten free flour blends in muffins because of the xanthan gum, but for this cake it worked great. The gf blend I used is listed in the recipe.
Now go make yourself some cake for breakfast!
