cinnamon coffee cake cupcakesThese delicious Cinnamon Coffee Cake Cupcakes aka. Breakfast Cupcakes, are perfect any time of day… They make a great brunch, or even a snack in the afternoon when you realize you FORGOT breakfast).

It happened last week, I think it was a Thursday, and things just weren’t flowing the way they should. You know how there are some days that just don’t work right? It’s not that dreadful awful things happen… just…the rhythm of the day is off, I need to take extra steps, and everything feels sticky…For me, those days always seem to happen on a Thursday (so… I totally understand how Arthur Dent felt in the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, even though I wasn’t facing down bulldozers wanting to destroy my home, or Vogons wanting to destroy my planet…) I feel like I never managed to get out of my bathrobe.)

When this happened to me again last week, I traced the feeling to its roots… breakfast.

I missed breakfast.

Well, no wonder! I was busy making sure everyone was out the door and the dog had a walk and lunches were made and it’s raining so “where- are- the- umbrellas” ? and did I sign the permission slip and where are your shoes? and what is that smell?!? (You’ve been there)

Best thing to do? Start over.

What kind of breakfast do you eat at 4? Something sweet, something warm, cinnamon….mmmm. But a cinnamon roll takes too long, yeast takes more time than I have patience for… What about a cupcake? hmmm… might be on to something.
