One of my absolute favorite things in the world to do is wake up on the weekends and make a delicious breakfast. If youve read any of my earlier posts youll know that Im obsessed with breakfast. I have a tie for my favorite meal of the day: breakfast and dessert. I think it might be due to the fact Im addicted to sugar.

The sour cream keeps this cake extra moist and the maple syrup glaze gives it a little something special.
