Lemon Blueberry Breakfast Cake from Alexandersmom.com

Happy Mother’s Day to all the Moms out there who take such good care of us!

I spent many Mother’s Days working at the restaurant from dawn to dusk taking care of 800 customers. It is so nice now not to have to work on it!! That is a treat in itself. What will make it even more special is to spend the morning with my lovies making a treat.

Alexander will be a big help making this easy breakfast cake. It’s basically a blueberry muffin with extra eggs baked in a cake pan, so I’m giving it the title of Breakfast Cake. The end result is delicious on its own with some extra blueberries, but since it’s Mother’s Day I’m going to splurge and pour maple syrup over it. Whipped cream would go well too.

Make some for the special Mom in your life. I am sure she will be so pleased.

Enjoy!

Avec Amour, Victoria & Alexander
