{blueberry breakfast cake}

Blueberry breakfast heaven!  Promise!

My girl is a Starbucks blueberry muffin lover.  She’d eat one every single day and never complain.  I have to admit, they are pretty delicious.  Well, this is just that….it’s like a giant Starbucks blueberry muffin cake.

Last weekend Bailey had her bestie Ruby for a sleepover.  So, I woke up extra early Sunday morning to whip this up for them.  I figured it was only appropriate to treat the girls to a proper breakfast, right?

Lets be real, I was craving carbs and sugar.  I made it for myself!  Damn it, what is wrong with me?!?!  Just give me the carbs and nobody gets hurt…lol.

Anyway, I knew Bay would wake up to the smell of blueberry cake in the oven.  Annnnddd, I was right!
