"The recipe is from How Sweet It Is blog by Jessica. Have this as breakfast or have it any time of day as a dessert. No matter when you eat it, you will love it! Sometimes I don't make the glaze and have it as dessert with a scoop of ice cream or a spoonful of whipped cream. It is so delicious any way you have it. Now you can even look forward to breakfast!"

So moist and delicious. We had it warm for dessert and the leftovers, (they are big), cold for breakfast.

What a great find, so different from any of the breakfast recipes I have made! So easy and tastes so good. Added this to my Breakfast/Brunch Cookbook, my summer guests are going to be so surprised when they are served this awesome Breakfast Cake! For company breakfasts will be drizzling with the glaze - that will put right over the top!

Megan this is so good! I had it for breakfast yesterday morning and it was a piece of heaven in a dish. I added crushed nuts in with the topping for a little added flavor and crunch. I see me and Alex having this often. He thought it was awesome too! I am going to try it with blueberries and raspberries for variation. Yum Yum!
