Cinnamon Breakfast Cake

Cinnamon Breakfast Cake at DoingSplendid.comI have always loved breakfast cake. I’m pretty sure it was my favorite breakfast food growing up. My mom would sometimes make it for us on the weekends and my grandma or my aunt made it on the weekdays. I have great memories of eating breakfast cake with my family as I was growing up.

After I had kids of my own, I wanted to make breakfast cake for them too, (who am I kidding…its mostly for me!:) ) but I didn’t always have Bisquick to make the same recipe as all the wonderful ladies in my life had, so we had to find another way. We found this recipe, made a few changes to make it more like my childhood breakfast cake, and we’ve been using it ever since.

Cinnamon Breakfast Cake at DoingSplendid.comI just love the ooey gooey cinnamony topping! It’s my favorite part of all! My other favorite part is that I almost always have all the ingredients. Nothing special to buy for this one! And my kids devour it. Every single time I make it! Even the pickiest of picky eater at my house loves this recipe the most.
