This is one way of justifying to my craving for a cake that is apt for breakfast as it has all the good ingredients thrown in.If your kids demand cake at the early hour  this one is good to keep handy.This  skillet breakfast cake is even good to serve when you have kids coming over for play  or to take to your kids school  during games.Makes a delightful healthy snack especily for after school.
