Mixed Berry Breakfast Cups

Disclosure: I received coupons to try the bread, but was not compensated for the post. I just really loved this recipe and wanted to share it!

Sun-Maid Raisin Bread sent me a few coupons and brunch recipes to try out using their Cinnamon Swirl Raisin Bread. I’ve only ever eaten their raisin bread toasted with butter and was intrigued to see how it would fare in a brunch recipe. Oh my was it crazy good! I would even say decadent. The golden brown bread cups bakes to perfection with a cinnamon sugar coating that melts into the bread as it cooks. I used Greek yogurt for the thicker, creamier consistency and blackberries and raspberries to top it off. It’s rich and dessert-like so I could only eat two, but I enjoyed every last morsel.

I loved how easy they were to make. You could have a batch whipped in 15 minutes or less which is perfect for unexpected guests.
