We are invited to a Mother's Day brunch and were asked to bring
something sweet for breakfast. (Just what my kids need is sugar for
breakfast!). The host was very clear that she does not want dessert
but a breakfast cake -- and no chocolate. With low sugar in mind, I
have the perfect recipe -- my Buttermilk Blueberry Cake!
Once again, I have substituted out some of the not-so-healthy
ingredients like butter and added in healthy alternatives. No one
will miss the heaping amount of butter or loads of sugar usually
found in buttermilk cake.
My kiddos measured and counted (using math skills), poured and
stirred (strengthened their tiny muscles). They were ecstatic about
baking a breakfast cake, and they only asked if they could add
chocolate chips 10 times.
Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there!
