So the children are up early, the day is young and they are asking for something special for breakfast. You aren't in the mood to make pancakes or homemade waffles and making cinnamon rolls is out of the question because they would take too long.
You want to whip up something in a hurry but you want it to be special. Sound familiar? I have encountered this once or twice (ahem). I am a firm believer of having boxed caked mix around the house for such an occasion. You never know what you need to whip up and a cake mix can usually be a great stand by. So when I opened my pantry doors early that morning and saw the lemon cake mix, I thought, hmmm... How about a lemon blueberry coffee cake?
Now, I must say, our oldest, Ryan was on his way home that day from being gone 10 days in Washington DC and Pennsylvania with the youth group from church. I had text him a picture of the lemon blueberry coffee cake and his response was one typical of a 14 year old:
There had better be some left when I get home.
We did leave him some. I'm not sure I would have, after all, you snooze you lose, right? (Not to mention all of the delicious treats he had over the last 10 days!) Something happens to a Mama's heart when a cub has been gone for that long. I even vacuumed his room for him. ;-)
