I love the blueberries at this time of the year… perfect for the blueberry breakfast bundt cake.
I love this time of year. When I enter a grocery store at this time of the year, I love going to the produce center. I think that I could fill my basket with just fresh summer fruits. This past weekend the blueberries were on sale and I couldn’t stop myself from purchasing some for baking.
Our kids were all headed home for the weekend. There was a baptism for our new grandson and a birthday party for my brother, all on the same day. Talk about a busy day.
I knew that it would tough getting out of the house on Sunday morning to get to the baptism on time, so I wanted something that would be fast to eat and something that everyone would enjoy. Who doesn’t love a yummy blueberry breakfast cake, right? Well, I found out that everyone enjoyed this cake and I have to say that it was a hit.
I have made this blueberry breakfast cake a few times now and each time I change it up a bit. This time around I added oats, brown sugar, finely chopped almonds, and cinnamon for a topping. I believe this is my favorite so far. I added some frosting, well just because.
