The kids will try to convince you that this cake is okay for breakfast.

Who said you can’t have cake for breakfast? The kids will be trying to outwit you with the excuse that they can eat this cake because it has cereal as a topping!

I just felt the need to bake something this afternoon and wandered around my stockpile searching for something to put together. I found some French Vanilla cake mix and some Pebbles Boulders. I grabbed a jar of peanut butter to make some homemade peanut butter icing and ran up the stairs to the kitchen. The kids just stared at me in wonder. I don’t know if they were wondering what I was doing with those items or if they were wondering why I was laughing with my evil, “I’ve got a plan” laugh.

This is what you will need:

  • Box of cake mix (yellow, white, French Vanilla, etc.) and ingredients written on the box
  • Box of cereal (I used Pebbles Boulders which is chocolate and peanut butter flavored)
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 2 cups confectioner’s sugar
  • 3 T. milk

Prepare and bake the cake according to the package directions. While it is baking, using a mixer, mix the butter and peanut butter until creamy. Then add the confectioner’s sugar 1/2 a cup at a time until thick.. Then add the milk 1 T. at a time until fluffy and creamy. Set the icing aside until the cake is cooled.

Spread the icing over the cake and then top with the cereal. Enjoy it with a nice, cold glass of milk!
