Blueberry Breakfast Cake from Happy Herbivore

Most weekdays, I have a green smoothie and a bagel for breakfast.  I am out of bagels this week, so I decided to switch it up by making this Blueberry Breakfast Cake from Happy Herbivore.


  • 2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup raw sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup non-dairy milk (I used almond milk)
  • 1 cup blueberries, frozen


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
  2. In a large bowl, whisk flour, cinnamon, ginger, baking soda, and baking powder together.
  3. Add applesauce, sugars, extract, and non-dairy milk.  Mix until jut combined, adding a little extra non-dairy milk if necessary.
  4. Gently fold in blueberries
  5. Transfer to a 9 x 9 greased or nonstick pan (or, as I did, a cupcake/muffin pan).
  6. Sprinkle top(s) with brown sugar and bake 30-35 minutes, or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.


I used date sugar in place of raw sugar, which may have impacted the taste/sweetness a bit.  I’m not sure, as this was my first time trying out date sugar.  I bought it a few weeks ago and have been waiting to try it, so I figured Why not!  The conversion for this recipe was 3 tbsp date sugar instead of 1/4 cup raw sugar.  

All in all, a pretty good recipe.  Next time, I’m going to try out a blueberry oat muffin recipe!
