Cake for Breakfast

Have you ever felt like eating pancakes but you don't feel like standing in front of the stove pouring, flipping, cooking, repeat? This "cake for breakfast" is a giant pancake made in the oven.

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook time: Approximately 1 hour
Yield: Approximately 9-12 pieces

  • 1 cup flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tsps baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 3 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup chopped strawberries

Cake for Breakfast
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a square pan with parchment paper; set aside.
  2. Mix together dry ingredients (flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon).
  3. In another bowl, whisk together wet ingredients (egg, buttermilk, sour cream, oil and vanilla).
  4. Add wet to dry ingredients and gently mix just until combined (a few lumps are ok).
  5. Wash and cut strawberries into small pieces. Drain on paper towel to reduce moisture going into the cake. Gently fold in strawberries.
  6. Pour into pan and bake for approximately 1 hour (until the top is browned and a toothpick comes out almost clean).
  7. Cut into pieces and serve with maple syrup and fruit.

Family Thoughts:

I made this up at the cottage for a group of 10 people on Canada Day weekend. I doubled the recipe and it turned out really well. I baked it for approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes, so cooking times will vary. There were no left overs with this delicious breakfast! I will definitely be making pancakes in a CAKE again! It is SO much easier and just as yummy as pancakes.
