Lumberjack Breakfast Cake

I have been under the weather this week and haven't finished organizing my craft room like I had mentioned last week. I have been wanting to share this amazing recipe for awhile now so I thought today was perfect for it.

A friend made this at a breakfast party and I fell in love. I am not a cake person, quite the opposite but this definitely is an exception. I love that who ever came up with this recipe named it so you can eat cake for breakfast, genius. This is now become my favorite breakfast food, add a bowl of fruit and it is perfect. (Sis, you don't need to double the topping on this one, it is just perfect the way it is. Lots of topping and the cake is super moist.)
