Blueberry Yogurt Breakfast Cake

It's like the blueberry muffin's classier cousin.
This Blueberry Yogurt Breakfast Cake is great for lazy weekends and brunches.

If I make anything blueberry in our house it will always and forever be a hit.

Always.

The husband is by far the craziest for them, but all three kids jump for them as well.  Remember that Skillet Blueberry Cobbler for Two I made last year?  Golly, that stuff was amazing with a dollup of vanilla ice cream.  Or how about my Blueberry Sour Cream Scones? Those beauties made the rounds on the interwebs a couple years back as well.

I mean I could go on and on.  I still have people tell me that my Lemon Ricotta Blueberry Pancakes still make the Saturday morning rounds at their house.

What can I say...we love blueberries.

The day I made this breakfast cake, I incorporated it into dinner as well, declaring "breakfast for dinner" night!  We had my yummy Amish Breakfast Casserole with this Blueberry Yogurt Breakfast Cake {plus sliced apples on the side for good measure}.

Do you regularly eat breakfast for dinner?

It's on my meal plan at least once a month and no one ever complains.

I love how this breakfast cake is tender and flaky, yet a bit dense and burst with almond flavor.  That little bit of almond extract in the batter makes is PERFECT.  I used frozed blueberries for this one, but fresh ones work just the same.

Look at that bite!

It's like a big glorious muffin, but better, a bit more "cake like".

Again, we served this along side eggs for dinner, but it also goes well with any long, lazy, weekend brunch.  It's also great for any baby or bridal shower.....or wrapped up securely to deliver to a friend.

All my friends LOVE it when I bring baked good by.  Just sayin'.

The addition of rich and creamy plain Greek yogurt makes this cake stellar.  I know many of your cringe at the word "moist", but I cannot help in using it to describe the batter of this breakfast cake.  

It's super thick and well.....that word.

Tip - - > I also lightly dust my blueberries in flour before folding them into any batter.  This will help them from sinking to the bottom of the cake.  See how they are incorporated all throughout the cake?  That my friends is how you do it.

No need for icing or any fancy topping on this one, it's fine just by itself.  Trust me!

If you end up making this, let me know!

Tag me on social media {@sweetsavoryeats} and I'll share the love.  And because I know these questions are already coming....YES...feel free to use any berry.  Raspberries, strawberries, blackberries, even sliced peaches.  They all work just fine!

Again, we just love blueberries.

I had been rejected by my husband after five(5) years of marriage just because another woman had cast a spell on him and he left me with 2 kids to suffer. One day when i was reading through the web, i saw a post on how he help a woman to get back her husband and i gave him a chance he told me that my husband is under spell, he said that he will help me and after 7 days that i will have my husband back. i believed he and today i am glad to let you all know that this spell caster has the power to bring lovers back now my husband is back with after 7 days . he also gave me a financial magic ring to boost my business and removed bad luck. i am now happy with my husband. Thanks you Dr. love please contact him at (lovespelldoctor0@gmail. com)
