A Feel-Good, 15-Minute Meal That's Crazy-Delish

Let’s just be real…Mondays are hard. Sometimes Mondays are hard because Sundays are hard. Sometimes Sundays are hard because you pay $5 for a little container of organic blueberries, bake them into a beautiful Bundt cake, and flip the baked Bundt only to have half of the cake actually leave the pan. Sometimes you flip a warm Bundt too soon because you’re hungry.
Sometimes (okay, all times), prenatal vitamins (for all their awesome hair growing and folic acid goodness) are not breakfast. Sometimes you just need to regroup, put on neon pink lipstick, take another trip to Whole Foods, and hope you don’t run into anyone you know because your bangs are greasy. Sometimes you just need an easy lunch before any further misfortunes take place.
Sometimes you just need to bust out your Mother Mary plate and settle in with some good eats. This is that.
We may have Joy the Baker's infamous "Man Bait" Apple Crisp recipe committed to memory, but it's not the only reason we're loyal to this self-taught dessert maven. Joy's hilariously soulful commentary, undying devotion to butter, and her steadfast belief that cake is a perfectly acceptable breakfast choice is what really keeps us coming back for more.
