This subtly sweet blueberry and chamomile tea cake served with vanilla and honey sweetened Greek yogurt is perfect for your next breakfast or brunch!
Happy weekend friends! Isn’t it wonderful that even though it’s Sunday we still have one more day to relax and call the weekend? Three day weekends are the best and it feels like we haven’t had one in a while. Hopefully you guys have been enjoying warm weather and doing fun things outside. It hasn’t been ideal for barbecuing and hiking here, it’s only supposed to be 60 degrees today. I guess that means I’ll be turning my oven on again and baking another one of these Blueberry Chamomile Breakfast Cakes.
I thought you guys might love this breakfast cake because who doesn’t love the idea of eating a piece of cake for breakfast?! The good news is this is a cake that is healthy enough to eat for breakfast, it’s actually just a batch of muffins in disguise, but don’t tell anyone. I make muffins all the time, but I thought it would be fun to convert a muffin recipe into a cake, I mean why not? There is something so fun about serving and eating a cake like this for breakfast.
I’ve been adding green tea to a lot of my recipes lately, but when I received some delicious citrus chamomile tea for my birthday I thought I would use that instead and change things up. I also added some of the biggest juiciest blueberries I’ve had in my life to the cake. These blueberries were almost twice the size of a normal blueberry and amazingly enough they were sweet and juicy too! Between the citrus and chamomile flavors from the tea, the sweet blueberries throughout the cake, and the touch of honey, it was one of the most delicious breakfast treats I’d had in a long time!
The cake was perfectly delicious on it’s own, but I thought since this was a cake it needed some sort of “frosting”. Well since it’s breakfast, buttercream wasn’t the way to go. Instead I whipped up some plain non-fat Greek yogurt, honey, and vanilla bean paste. I served the perfectly sweetened yogurt alongside the cake so you could spoon however much you wanted onto each bite…trust me when I say you are going to be slathering it all over every bite you take! Next time you want to change up your muffin routine try making this sweet yet still healthy enough for breakfast Blueberry Chamomile Breakfast Cake!
