I've looked everywhere for a breakfast cake of some sort and was so excited to find this "goodie!" http://heavenlyhomemakers.com/blog/ She's got some great easy recipes!

“Mom is Great” Breakfast Cake

1 cup butter, melted and cooled

3/4 cup buttermilk

2 cups whole wheat flour

2 cups whole rolled oats

¾ cup honey

2 eggs

1 t. sea salt

1 t. baking soda

1 t. vanilla1 cup raisins, chocolate chips or other dried fruit

Stir together butter, buttermilk, flour and oats in a glass bowl. Cover with a cloth and allow the grains to soak on your counter overnight or for at least 8 hours.

Stir in honey, eggs, salt, baking soda and vanilla. Fold in raisins, chocolate chips or dried fruit. Pour into a buttered 9×9 inch baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.

We had a cake like this at a bed n breakfast years ago and loved it. So, I'm pumped to whip one of these out.

**** Make in jelly jars and fluff up the top for a nice touch to a romantic picnic with your honey or to give as gifts. I'm even liking the idea of muffins for quick grab breakfast and for freezing.

***We made this a the family gave it 4 stars out of 5. I made it into muffins so my husband could take some to work. We'll keep this in the rotation for sure!
