This Cake Batter French Toast Recipe Is Worth Waking Up Early In The Morning For

Whoever said you can't have cake for breakfast obviously has never tried this cake batter French toast recipe. We are huge fans of cake batter here. Not just the leftover stuff that you are maybe allowed to lick off the spoon (although obviously we love that too). I'm talking cake batter pancakes, cupcakes, popcorn, and even our famous #KRISPOPS! So it’s no surprise we combined it with another one of our favorite treats, French toast. This recipe is the perfect treat for a birthday breakfast, or to just treat yo’ self.

Sure, waking up 20 minutes earlier in the morning before work isn't ideal. Trust me — we get it. Every. Second. Counts. But when you are waking up for this breakfast of champions, it sure is worth it. Made exactly how you would make regular French toast except with a little cake mix added into the batter and frosting on top, this recipe is super simple, and a fabulous way to celebrate any occasion. So get your glasses of milk ready, stack up a few pieces of cake batter French toast, throw a candle on top, and voila! You have got yourself a unique and incredible birthday cake... for breakfast.
