Morning Glory Breakfast Cake - THB





In our group, The Home Bakers (THB) we are presently baking a Morning Glory Breakfast cake which is chock full of goodies.   Lena from Frozen Wings chose this bake and it is a good pick.  We are a coffee cake family and I love the different toppings or fillings, we use in these cakes.  Go over to Lena for the recipe.

I subbed in a gluten-free brown rice mixture for the whole wheat and the all purpose flour.  I was out of blueberries and used dried blueberries instead.  I used coconut yogurt which is dairy free in place of the low fat plain yogurt.  Instead of wheat bran, I used one of the crumbs, I make for my husband.  This one was from Chex cereal.

The cake also had carrots and an apple so you can get a picture of the goodness of this cake.  It used molasses which I included but I don't really like it.

Please visit Joyce who bakes likes a dream.  She started THB and can be found at  Kitchen Flavours . 
We link up at the THB site which you will find here.  You will find all those who have baked the present cake.

The book, we are using is simple, sweet and savory Coffee Cakes by Lou Seibert Pappas.  Almost every recipe has turned out to our liking and I look forward to baking the remaining recipes.

  1. Hi Chaya,
    Great to know that you like this cake. It's a nice cake with lots of fibres and healthy ingredients, but then, this is one cake that is not a favourite in my house. But I'm glad that I've given this a try. Looking forward to the next bake!

  2. Hi Chaya,

    I do like the color of your cake texture from the gluten free substitutes.
