Granola Cake

First let me just say "I AM BACK"! And while I have been baking (secretly...without a purpose....alone and without fellow bloggers) it is not the same as baking along with others. Now on to the cake.

This week the group is baking granola cake. I make granola fairly regularly since it is something we all like to eat and as luck would have it I had just made a batch. As unluck would have it (is this even a saying) my granola had raisins in it.

I would officially like to apologize to my mother for all the years that I made her pick the raisins out of my raisin toast because raisin picking is a real pain.

Raisin free granola gets mixed with coconut and chopped chocolate, then mixed with a bunch of cake type ingredients and then baked.

It is delicious. Not fancy but delicious. And since it has granola in it I do believe it qualifies as a breakfast food!

  1. I left the fruit in my granola and still loved this cake. I am with you on this cake qualifying as breakfast food.

  2. I left the raisins in my muesli (they seemed fairly plump) and it still worked really well. I agree with you - perfect breakfast food!

  3. Sounds like a good cake, can't wait to make it.
