Morning Cake


Cake in the morning? YEP! Sign me up, right?? Not only is this cake simple to make, but it goes perfectly with a cup of coffee in the morning, mid morning treat, or even an evening sweet treat! I recently made this for my parents and family one morning and this cake was gone in no time. The kids ate it happily, as did all the adults. My mom even said it was something she will most definitely be making again for company at her home!! Enjoy!!

    Oh bummer it wasn’t a hit with you! Its a lightly sweetened cake that is perfect for the morning because it isn’t too heavy, rich, or sweet. I am sorry it wasn’t a keeper for you!
