Did someone say birthday cake? And in a muffin for breakfast? Yes, please! These Birthday Cake Muffins are a fun treat.
I love how combining the sprinkles into the mixture causes fun and colorful filling. The texture of the muffin is just right.
Enough of a crisp crust on the outside but warm and moist on the inside so that it doesn’t crumble everywhere.
It is enjoyable with its drizzled powdered sugar and lemon zing. I think both adults and kids will rave over this flavor. These muffins are a great alternative to birthday cake and a mix of fun at any party.
These are a fun treat any time too. Who says you can’t have unbirthday cake? Why not celebrate all year long with this birthday breakfast idea? Add these to your muffin recipes to celebrate anytime.
These muffins are also great for school lunch snacks too. No need to buy the boxed brands. Be sure to store these in an airtight container for up to 5 days to keep fresh.
