Rhubarb Grapefruit Breakfast Cake

Has anyone else realized how far a small amount of rhubarb goes?! I picked up only 5 stalks of Rhubarb at the Farmers Market this past weekend, have already made 5 recipes with it, and still have 1 1/2 left! Not complaining…

It was my dogs birthday on Tuesday so I made him an Oatmeal Red Velvet Cake. He also got a tee-pee… the most spoiled. In case you all were wondering, his name is Batman, he is a 7 lb Yorkie, and he is the absolute best 🙂

While I was excited for him to have all the birthday fun he deserves, I wanted a treat too! So I decided to make a Breakfast Cake for myself.

You will love this recipe because it’s super easy. Only one bowl is needed to combine everything. It is also sugar, oil & cruelty free of course 🙂 Who doesn’t want to eat cake for breakfast?!
