Can you imagine a delicious cake for breakfast paired with your favorite coffee? It sounds dreamy, right? I feel like my entire day goes better when I have a tasty treat to pair with my coffee in the mornings.
Lately, my mornings have slowed down a bit. My husband has been in charge of taking our son to school and my daughter and I get to stay home a bit longer. Another thing that has been life changing is doing my grocery shopping online. That’s a whole other post in itself, but seriously it’s a gift from heaven! That has really made my mornings lighter.
Mornings being a bit lighter means that I have actually found myself having time to enjoy my cup of coffee and a slice of this Pineapple Cake too! It’s a match made in heaven.
I made this cake with the intent of changing up my recipe for crumb topped muffins to make it more like a coffee cake. It worked out perfectly; however, the first time I made this cake, I left for about an hour and when I came back there was literally ONE piece left. That’s right…ONE!
My husband and kids ate the entire thing while I was gone and left me one piece. I hadn’t even tried a bite yet.
So, obviously it was a hit with them and then that meant I had to make it again because it was that good.
I intend to make it next time with blueberries, but for now this pineapple cake is divine and perfect for my morning or for a brunch with the girls.
Now, are you ready for a delicious slice and a cup of coffee? Let’s start the morning off right.
