Breakfast cakes are a delicious and convenient alternative to elaborate, time-consuming breakfasts. They are also a heartier and healthier option compared to toaster pastries or other pop in the toaster breakfast foods.

Once you have a breakfast cake baked, you can simply slice and serve with fruit and yogurt. Set aside a little time on Sunday to bake one or two breakfast cakes and you’ll have your family well-fed in the morning for most of the week.

The following breakfast cakes are studded with nutritious ingredients and come together in 30 minutes or less.


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup blanched almond flour
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup plain yogurt
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons pure almond extract


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9-inch round cake pan.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together flours, sugar, almonds, baking powder, and salt. In a second bowl, whisk together yogurt, butter, eggs, and almond extract. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and stir until just combined.
  3. Spoon the batter into a prepared cake pan. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool cake in pan for 10 minutes on a wire rack. Invert onto a cutting board, slice and serve. If making ahead, invert and allow to cool completely on wire rack.
