Banana Cream Cheese Breakfast Cakes

Back in my high school days, my house was a pretty cool house to hang out at. We had live bands pretty much 4 out of 7 nights of the week, people we’re always over, and times were more good then bad. Music was always a large part of my life. I can remember my mom blasting Pearl Jam in her Ford Crown Victoria and singing at the top of her lungs. And at my dad’s house, the volume was always on as load as it could be until the neighbors complained.

So, it only seemed proper that I give my dad two tickets to an upcoming show by Rush. Little did I know how happy it would make him. Sure, I expected it to ‘get him’ (we are serious gift givers – not big or expensive, just things that you know mean a lot) but I didn’t know that two days later I would answer the phone 4 times in one night to a very excited poppa smurf on the other line.

My dad has seen Rush something like a dozen times, but I have yet to go. Dad decided the perfect way to use his tickets would be to go with me – he even dug out his classic denim jacket with the Rush logo embroidered across the back. We are going to make a few days of it and have some bonding time. Get ready for a Rush concert countdown. ;)


  1. Your house definitely was the cool house to hang out!! These breakfast “cakes’ would only make it that much cooler. I woulda been that kid who wouldn’t leave.

  2. These sound sooo tasty! Yum!

  3. What an amazing thing for breakfast! I would love few at least :)

    Dang, just used up my ripe banana’s to make bread. Going to make these next though, they look so good! Sounds like you got your Dad the perfect gift, how fun to go together and spent time with one another.

  5. What fun! I bet you and your dad will have a blast.

  6. Whoa! Those look amazing! I think I would have a hard time just having one

  7. Your dad is clearly awesome. As are these muffins. Pinning…

  8. Cake for breakfast is probably one of my favorite things ever… especially when it includes bananas and cream cheese!

  9. why hello there, delicious…. i’ve made a similar type of treat with pumpkin muffins….. these look absolutely delicious.

  10. Ooo, these look like classic feel-good breakfast muffins; I like it!

    These breakfast cakes look soo good! I’m a sucker for any baked good with banana!

  14. These breakfast cakes are unlike anything I’ve seen and they sound delicious – although anything with cream cheese is usual a winner with me. I’m featuring this post in today’s Food Fetish Friday (with a link-back and attribution). I hope you have no objections and always excited to see what you’ll create next…

  15. Yum! I absolutely HAVE to try these!

  16. Cake for breakfast?! Yes, please! I need some ripe bananas. Oh wait, I have some in the freezer. Looks like I’ll be doing some late-night baking tonight :)

  17. I really wish I had this for breakfast today… sipping on a naked juice.

  18. Cake for breakfast is the best thing ever! These look divine.

  19. I love how the cream cheese filling oozes in the center. What a great breakfast.
