What is in this blueberry breakfast cake?
This breakfast cake is sweetened with honey, a little brown sugar, and bursting blueberries. It’s made with simple ingredients such as flour, avocado oil, eggs, and almond milk.
Substitues & Variations
We tested this recipe with white whole wheat flour as well and the substitute works 1:1. You can also try subbing 1:1 for gluten-free all-purpose flour.
If you’re hoping to nix the brown sugar, try subbing that for coconut sugar.
You can use a different oil such as vegetable, coconut, or olive oil in place of the avocado oil.
- Add another fruit such as banana, raspberries, or strawberries.
- Top it with dark chocolate chips.
- Mix in 1/4 cup of peanut butter.
- Amp up the protein with 2 tablespoons of your favorite collagen or protein powder.
We recommend storing leftover breakfast cake in an airtight container in a cool, dark place for around 2 days. If you’re hoping to make it last even longer, you can store it in the refrigerator.
Let the breakfast cake cool completely. Then, tightly wrap it in a piece of tin foil removing as much air as possible. Freeze for up to 3 months.
When you’re ready to eat, let it thaw overnight in the fridge. We recommend briefly heating it up in the microwave before serving.
