I guarantee you’ll find a new favorite in this list of comforting breakfast cake recipes, so you can ring in the new season properly, with a fork and a cup of coffee 😉
If you’re already dreaming about the holidays ~ Cranberry Breakfast Cake
Don’t save this one for Christmas morning, it’s way too good, those tart cranberries burst in your mouth like no other fruit. The combination of tender vanilla cake and the zippy cranberries is unique and delicious,
If you think apple season > pumpkin season ~ Honeycrisp Apple Cake
Honeycrisp apples are a new favorite, they keep their famous crunch even after baking up in this yummy cake. Try Granny Smith as a substitute.
If your latest CSA box is full of root veggies ~ Carrot Coffee Cake with Cream Cheese Glaze
Sweet, in-season root vegetables like carrots or parsnips are delicious baked up into cozy spiced breakfast cakes like this one. The tangy cream cheese glaze takes it over the top!
If you’re not ready to give up on summer ~ Plum Blitzkuchen
Did you know plum season spans right into October? Plums are one of my favorite fruits to bake with because their flavor explodes in the oven. If you can’t find fresh plums for this lovely vintage cake, how about using dried plums (aka prunes.)
If you can’t get to the apple orchard this year ~ Apple Cider Doughnut Cake
It’s the queen of fall cakes ~ this tender, sweet cake is like slicing into a giant apple cider doughnut. No apple picking in your zip code? Make this.
If you’re over pumpkin spice before fall even starts ~ Fresh Ginger and Pear Cake
The combination of fresh, spicy ginger and juicy pears is heavenly. It’s autumnal in a subtle, different sort of way, so if PSLs aren’t your thing, you’ll love this cake.
If you ? New York ~ Cardamom Crumb Cake
This tall, pillowy cake with a thick layer of nubbly crumbs is the way they do it in the five boroughs. It’s perfection with a hot cup of coffee on a chilly morning.
If you have (literally) no time ~ Easy Cinnamon Coffee Cake
This cake starts as box mix and ends as a soft, delicious, cinnamon-y cake; lazy weekend morning not required.
If it’s just not fall without pumpkin ~ Pumpkin Crumb Cake
Don’t know if you’ve noticed, but pumpkin puree is a magical ingredient in cakes ~ it creates the most amazing texture ever, and that golden hue is unmatched!
If you think chocolate is a basic food group ~ Chocolate Sour Cream Doughnut Bundt Cake
If you’re craving a treat this fall, how about a giant glazed chocolate doughnut in a bundt pan? Yep, that should do the trick.
