Summer is the season of eating.
Who am I kidding? Every season is the season of eating. But I've actually been back in my kitchen trying new recipes and baking things over the past month, so that's a win.
In fact, I've been making dinner - thinking that vegetables and protein should probably be a thing. Eating cheese is also a thing, however, there needs to be a balance.
If you're looking for vegetables and protein, can I recommend this recipe for Egg Roll in a Bowl from 40 Aprons? I've made it twice in the past month. Yum!
Now...back to the cake
Cake with berries.
Cake with a cream cheese layer.
Cake with a crumb topping.
Have your breakfast cake and eat it too!
Giving credit where it's due, this delicious crumb cake recipe came from Sally's Baking Addiction. I just traded the blackberries for raspberries. So in the spirit of making a summer breakfast cake that will make you sing into your coffee cup, bust out your springform pan and hop over to the recipe on her page and get on it.
