Pineapple Upside Down Breakfast Cake


I have never been one to like the tradition Easter foodie feast ( I mean, expect for the buttery dinner rolls) but one thing I would absolutely HAPPILY snore through dinner for was knowing I had a fat slice of pineapple upside down cake waiting for me at the finish line.

I mean, after we had had a lovely family gathering.

Now that I’m an adult and can make my own rules, I’ve kind of wondering why I have never made the gloriousness that is pineapple upside down cake any other time of the year? It’s ludicrous really.

So, with that said – I made some! Except this time it’s in ‘breakfast cake’ form – aka the trendy baked oats – breakfast cake sounds better though… amiright?

All you’ll need is a handful of ingredients including oats, water or plant-based milk, protein powder , maple syrup/brown sugar and pineapple! I mean, obviously there are a few other ingredients but they aren’t the money makers on the cast list. They take on more of a supporting actor role but we still love them – you know?

Anyway- it’s time to make cake!! Pineapple Upside Down Breakfast Cake, that is…
