Blueberry Breakfast Cake is a delicious way to bring in the blueberry picking season! Packed with fresh blueberries and perfect as a pairing with your morning coffee (or dessert as well!) you can make and munch on this recipe for breakfast or even all week long.
Admittedly I kinda suck at eating breakfast. Two cups of coffee and then I’ll wait till lunch. Its not that I don’t like breakfast foods, its just that I get a bit lazy in the mornings and this gal and cereal do not mix. But the beautiful thing about this blueberry breakfast cake recipe is that its the breakfast that keeps on giving.
The lemon glaze is the perfect amount of sweet to really dress up the flavors and pairing a well known favorite, lemon and blueberry.
But don’t feel stuck in eating this before 9 am. Just because its a breakfast cake doesn’t mean its also not perfect for a dessert or an espresso and light afternoon snack.
