Caramel Apple Upside Down Cake


Here we go again, I’m making a cake, which naturally falls under the Dessert category, but before I even gather up the ingredients, before I even whisk the batter, I’m already thinking of eating it for Breakfast.

I’ve been sneaking dessert for breakfast for as long as I can remember, and in this blog, I’ve made enough recipes that I’ve considered it a blog perk. Sometimes dessert for breakfast is something healthy but tastes like a treat, like Carrot Cake Smoothie, or Chocolate Coconut Avocado Pudding, or Zucchini Banana Bread. But sometimes I just straight up eat actual cake for breakfast. Life is short, the days are long, and cake makes me happy. No shame.

Little G Ice Cream

I fell hard and I fell fast for little g ice cream. I love the strawberry shortcake flavor, and I love that it's made in Boston by 17-year old Grace.
