This Caramel Nut Breakfast Cake is a delicious cake recipe perfect for breakfast or any time of day! This simple recipe uses a white cake mix for the base.
This Caramel Nut Breakfast Cake is from a recipe that I found in my Mom’s recipe box…the best place ever to find recipes! It’s made with a white cake mix base, and has a sugar/nut/cake mix swirl throughout the batter. Yum.
From My Mom’s Recipe Box
One of my most favourite places to find recipes is in my Mom’s recipe box. It’s a treasure trove of childhood memories and delicious dishes, and I can’t get enough of it. I love to flip through the recipe cards and see my Mom’s handwriting, and who the recipe came from…so so good. On a recent visit I took some pictures of recipes that I remember enjoying as a kid, but hadn’t had in years. So I decided that I needed to make some of them again. This Caramel Nut Breakfast Cake is one of those recipes.
Cake Mixes are Great Cake Baking Options
The great thing about this Caramel Nut Breakfast Cake is that it uses a white cake mix, which makes the assembly so easy. I don’t often share recipes here on my site that use a cake mix…in fact I think there are only 3…my Rainbow Jello Cake, Strawberry Poke Cake and these Peanut Butter Cookies. But when I’m baking at home, I don’t always make cake from scratch! Cake mixes are actually a staple in my pantry and I have no regret about that at all. Cake mixes are delicious and perfect in a pinch.
The cake mix in this recipe makes for a sweet, flavourful and moist cake base. But that’s not even the best part…this cake has a sugar/nut/cake mix swirl throughout the batter. Then after the cake is baked, it gets drizzled all over with a delicious glaze. Delicious.
Now I know this is called a ‘Breakfast Cake’, but honestly, I do think it’s a bit sweet for breakfast. Unless you’re serving it as a side to eggs, sausages or bacon, and fresh fruit. I wanted to keep the original name of the recipe, but I do think it would be best served for dessert or as a birthday cake!
Easy, quick and delicious. I hope you enjoy this cake as much as we did!Print
Have a delicious day!
