This is a super easy gluten free cake to make if you’re having people in last minute or need to feed breakfast to a crowd.
This is also a great cake to make if you have 6 people heading off to work or day camp every morning who need breakfast and snacks. Wow guys, the last couple of weeks have been busy! Our college age twins and their friend have moved in for the summer and found fantastic jobs at a music studio as day camp counselors. My youngest is a camper for the next two weeks and my son will be helping out when he gets back from another summer camp. (That’s 5 kids eating breakfast, if you got lost.)
But, as a homeschooler, I’m a little unprepared for the morning breakfast rush and I’ve never really packed lunches, so sending everyone off in the morning originally caused me a little stress.
Thankfully, everyone likes this cake. It takes me about 5 minutes to mix up in my big standing mixer, and 20 minutes to cook, so if I get up even half an hour before they do, I can serve this with breakfast and have extra for snacks. I’ve been making it almost every day for two weeks, and nobody is tired of it yet.
I also make this if I have last minute company coming over. I hate not having anything to serve guests and this cake throws together really quickly.
