Yeah, toast is great, and granola is grand, but cake may be the best breakfast of all.

I'm going to rationalize this for you: Cake that can stand alone (I'm talking the frosting-free, no-occasion-necessary beauties) pretty much fulfill all of the breakfast basics we aim for daily. Filling? Yep. Can you eat it with coffee? Definitely. Will it energize you? You betcha. And cakes with fruit and a crumble? Basically a granola bar (right?). So tomorrow, forget about your perfect poached egg; here are 15 cakes that are perfectly suitable to eat before 10 AM.
