Something my kids love is when I take a basic muffin mix and bake it in a cake pan and then top it with glaze. It's a twist on "cake" and even simpler. My daughter's favorite is the Raspberry, while my oldest loves the Blueberry. He says with the glaze on top, it tastes just like a blueberry cake donut. After tasting it, I'd have to say I agree. I did a raspberry muffin mix in a heart-shaped pan for valentine's breakfast for the kids. They loved it and it was cute.
