When my parents visited us last March (when we still lived in LA) I whipped up a quick blueberry breakfast cake one morning. It ended up being a huge hit with my parents.

I still can't get over how easy this breakfast cake is to make -- and yet how beautifully it presents. My good friend Nick also made this recipe for his mom and look at how stunning his cake came out:
