My new Lemon Blueberry Overnight Breakfast Cake might be your new holiday morning favourite!
Yes. A cake that you can tuck into the fridge and then bake up fresh and hot the next morning! This has completely changed my breakfast game, you guys. Maybe you all knew about this before I did, but hey, sometimes I can be a slow learner. Overnight breakfast cakes are my new love, watch for another new recipe or two using this game changer before the holidays!
It’s true you guys, overnight breakfast cakes exist! You can totally make coffee cake batter the night before, wrap it and then tuck your pan into the fridge until morning.
Mind = BLOWN.
And they bake up just fine, FYI.
Just look at that lemon blueberry bliss happening right there.
So am I the only one that didn’t know that overnight breakfast cakes were a thing? I found just a simple overnight coffee cake on Allrecipes and my mind starting working overtime on how to make the kind of overnight breakfast cake that I love.
I love anything lemon and blueberry, so of course my first attempt at an overnight coffee cake would be a blueberry one. I will delve into some more seasonal ones but sometimes that burst of berry flavour in the middle of winter is priceless. Sometimes it’s worth paying the premium for blueberries and fresh lemons at the store for a treat like this.
I hope that this helps you all with your holiday mornings now! I am going to have fun delving into other recipes for overnight breakfast cakes in the next month!
