What's For Breakfast?

This recipe is a happy accident. I was looking in the cabinet wondering what to cook for breakfast. I noticed we had an envelope of muffin mix. But those mixes only make about six muffins, maybe, and I was looking to feed a few more than that. I added serveral ingredients with the muffin mix and was delighted with the end result. This is one recipe that will be used over and again in my kitchen. I hope it will be in your kitchen, too.

Cook Time

Prep time: 7 min
Cook time: 40 min
Ready in: 47 min
Yields: One 8" square cake


  • 1 package apple cinnamon muffin mix, Bran muffin mix will also work.
  • 1 cup self-rising flour
  • 3/4 cup white granulated sugar
  • 1 cup dry oats
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 3/4 to 1 cup blueberries, fresh or frozen and thawed, Strawberries work also.
  • 1/2 cup raisins or dried cranberries, Or both.
  • 1/2 cup pecan or walnut pieces, Or both.


  1. Mix muffin mix, dry oats, cinnamon, flour, and sugar. Add eggs. Mix well. Add milk. Stir together. Add blueberries and raisins and nuts. Fold in. Spoon into an eight inch square baking pan. I used a glass baking pan. Bake in a 400 degree oven for approximately forty minutes or until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean. After you get this out of the oven, brush with butter for a nice golden brown finish.
  2. This is awesome served hot and slathered with butter. Or this tastes great with cream cheese spread on a piece. This also tastes great without any embellishment. This blueberry breakfast bread is a great companion to scrambled eggs and bacon. This breakfast bread is a welcome addition to brunch at a friend's house. It also makes a nice dessert.
