Good morning friends!  Hope your Tuesday is starting off well. 
Wanted to share this yummy recipe with you all.  I made this breakfast cake last weekend and it was so scrumptious!  I love buttermilk recipes!  We ate it for breakfast and then had it again for snack later in the afternoon ;)
Hope you enjoy!
