Wake up everybody it's time for breakfast! This week, breakfast is extra fun, extra bright, and extra colourful. I can't wait to show you.
Cereal is always an easy breakfast to prepare, but why not jazz it up for a special Saturday morning with your kids! I have baked colourful vanilla batter right into my cereal bowls! Then I’ve topped them with cereal and milk.
This is such a simple treat I can't wait to show you how I cake it!

Dividing and Dying Your Batter!
Divide your batter equally among three small mixing bowls, or use a food scale to divide into 2lb portions.
Add a different food colouring to each bowl. Adjust the colour to your liking by adding more food colouring if you wish. Blend into your batter until fully incorporated. If you don't like the colours I used, there are tons of other options, and you can even play with mixing and matching colours!
Grease your 3 x oven safe bowls, and pour the coloured batter from your mixing bowls into these. Bake these cakes at 350 degrees, until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. About 45 minutes to an hour. Your baking time will vary according to the size of your bowls. This can also be done the night before if you’d like to sleep in the next morning - who says the kids are the only ones who get a treat!
Once your cereal bowls have been baked and cooled, it's time to prepare breakfast.
Level your cake bowls across the top rim of your bowls with a serrated knife so that they are flush with the edge of the bowl.
Carve out an inner bowl from the cake using your spoon, leaving a 1" border around the sides of the bowl. Remove enough cake so that there is room for cereal, but be careful not to dig right to the bottom to reveal your oven safe bowl.
Pour in a nice mound of your favourite cereal. Now it's time to serve up this wonderful breakfast!
Call your kids in for a wonderful surprise. Let them pour on their own milk and dig in! I get a lot of questions about whether or not the cake will become soggy once the milk is added - the answer is no, not if used moderately. This vanilla cake recipe is moist but dense, and soaks up the milk beautifully. YUM!
Cake for breakfast! Your kids will wonder what they did to deserve this! May I suggest that you send them to a friends house so they can work off all the sugar.....
