Microwave Breakfast Pumpkin Cake with Peanut Butter Greek Yogurt Topping
I usually wake up starving and craving breakfast food. I always need something I can make fast, but that will be hearty and keep me full throughout the morning.
This fast and easy microwave pumpkin spice cake is the perfect fall breakfast that definitely kept me full all morning long.
This little cake has a subtle sweetness from pumpkin and applesauce, and some spice from a pumpkin pie spice blend. I also needed to get my morning protein and decided to top the cake with a dollop of greek yogurt that I mixed some natural peanut butter into.
The combination of all the great flavors that make up this breakfast cake will leave you wanting it every morning thereafter.
