Savory Breakfast Bundt Cake

I love egg bake recipes. They are usually my go-to dish for a savory breakfast, but sometimes I just get bored with them and I want to switch it up. This Breakfast Bundt Cake is the perfect option. It offers the same delicious ingredients and easy assembly as a traditional egg bake, but it’s totally different in appearance.

Whether I’m making this for a Sunday morning family breakfast or a group of people for a brunch, it’s the perfect morning meal. Breakfast bundt cake is so easy to prep, and the final appearance is a beautiful savory dish that tastes as good as it looks.

Substitutions and Additions

  • VEGETABLES: Feel free to add any of your other favorite veggies to this. I like spinach, diced bell peppers, red onion, and sliced green onion. But, feel free to throw in whatever you like or leave out what you don’t!
  • PROTEIN: The ham in this recipe could be swapped out for any other type of breakfast meat such as bacon or sausage. You could even add more than one meat if you’d like.
  • VEGETARIAN: This is really simple to make vegetarian. Simply leave the meat out and add extra veggies or use veggie crumbles!

How to Make This Breakfast Bundt Cake Recipe

It’s very easy to assemble your savory breakfast cake. You will layer all of your ingredients in the bundt cake, then bake!

  1. Create an even layer of cubed bread at the bottom of your pan.
    add bread cubes into the pan
  2. Layer the potatoes on top of the bread.

  3. Next layer the ham, followed by the onions, and finally the shredded cheese.

  4. Sprinkle salt and pepper over the top.
    sprinkle cheese on top
  5. Whisk together the eggs and milk and slowly pour the mixture over the ingredients in the pan.
    Pro-tip: A good way to tell if the eggs and milk are well incorporated is when the mixture begins to show large bubbles, it is ready to pour. Be sure to pour the egg mixture slowly or the egg will go everywhere!

Storage Tips

  • To Store: Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 days.
  • To Freeze: I don’t recommend freezing your breakfast bundt cake. It doesn’t tend to thaw well. This is the best when it’s served fresh.
  • To Reheat: To reheat, simply place a piece of breakfast bundt cake in the microwave in 30-second increments, until heated through.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have to use a bundt cake pan to make this breakfast casserole?

You could definitely make this breakfast bundt cake recipe in a regular casserole dish and it would still taste delicious, but it would lack the beautiful end product that you get from the bundt pan shape.

Can I make breakfast bundt cake ahead of time?

Yes! I love any recipe that can be prepped ahead of time. This breakfast bundt cake can be made the night before, and instead of baking, you will want to cover it tightly with plastic and place it in the fridge. When you’re ready the next morning, just pop it in the oven

    I Want to impress my friend on his birthday with your Breakfast Bundt cake but cannot locate potatoes O’Brien or even a substitute. Do you have a suggestion? Also, does A nonstick pan pan need to be oiled before adding ingredients?
