With all the extra time on my hands lately because of COVID-19, a cake seemed like a great idea.

Is cake ever a bad idea? Probably not.

It happens to be my birthday week, and like many states, we’re currently under a stay-at-home order.

It’s easy, it’s warm (which I love when it’s cooler outside), and it makes me feel healthy since it’s full of oats and apples.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I totally eat this for breakfast, and I don’t feel ashamed about it.
