Moms Love Breakfast (Recipe: Cream Cheese Strawberry Breakfast Buns)

If you haven’t noticed this mama really loves breakfasts and brunches. Its pretty obvious-I’d rather make a breakfast bread or cake than a traditional cake any day. Since Mother’s Day is around the corner I thought it would be nice to link up some of my favorite breakfast cakes…I think mom would really like one!

***postscript:  forgot to mention a little giveaway...here!  Monday, May 9!!!  Come check it out.
Chocolate Swirl Sour Cream Coffee Cake
If mom loves chocolate, she will definitely love this cake. Chocolate pecan streusel swirled in the middle and sprinkled on top. Perfect with a cup of coffee.
Blueberry Cream Cheese Pound Cake
Moist, tender, delicious, studded with blueberries and drizzled with a sugary sweet icing.
Buttermilk Pound Cake
Our household favorite. Moist and versatile. This cake is great for morning, noon or night-just add your favorite accompaniment.
Lemon Pound Cake
How many times do I have to say moist in this post? This cake is the pinnacle of moist thanks to a puckery lemon glaze. Perfect for that lemon lover.
Chocolate Chip Cornbread
A unique and tender bread that is not too sweet.

My mom’s favorite breakfast bread is Strawberry Cream Cheese Buns. Sweet, delicately flavored and ummm, well…yes, moist. Strawberry jam is swirled into the batter creating a pretty and tasty cake. Enjoy!
