Mixed Berry Breakfast Cups

If you are looking for something different and refreshing for breakfast, whip up my Mixed Berry Breakfast Cups. They are a baked cinnamon swirl bread that is then filled with yogurt and topped with fresh berries. A simple but satisfying start to your morning. 

I get tired of eating the same thing over and over again. I need variety, and also options for sweet and savory. One of my favorite sweet options right now is this breakfast cup. Literally, not even five minutes of prep and I have it in the oven getting nice and toasty. Once it has cooled, top and devour!

These are 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.

 Easy Brunch Recipe

If you’re planning a holiday brunch this year, serve these Mixed Berry Breakfast Cups. In fact, brunch seems to be the rage these days with 80% of Canadian families stating they would consider a festive brunch in place of a typical holiday dinner (according to a survey conducted by Angus Reid). This recipe has inspired me to definitely consider that option!

    Absolutely! I love the cinnamon raisin bread as it adds depth and flavor to the cups, but you could use any type of bread you have. Whether just plain Italian, wheat, whole grain, etc. Sprinkling on the cinnamon and sugar with the butter helps add a good amount of flavor to the bread so even plain bread gets dressed up!

    What Type of Toppings of Put on a Mixed Berry Breakfast Cup

    The possibilities are truly endless, let me share some of my favorite ideas with you on how you can transform your morning breakfast. 

    • Nuts | Slivered almonds, chopped walnuts, cashews, and the list goes on. Nuts would be a great source of nutrients and offer a tasty crunch to the recipe. 
    • Honey | A drizzle of honey, maple syrup or even agave over the top would add even more sweetness to your recipe. Plus it will add a new level of elegance to the presentation if you plan to serve guests. 
    • Fruit | While I used mixed berries, you could truly use any type of fruit you want. Bananas, pineapple, coconut, kiwi, apples, and the list goes on. Create a cup that is exactly what you want. 
    • Cream Cheese | You can either do a dollop of cream cheese in the center and skip the yogurt, or add in some softened cream cheese in with your yogurt and then mix it up. The cream cheese adds so much richness and creamy texture to the cup. 
    • Savory Option | While my version is sweet, you could always opt for savory. Add in some cooked crumbled bacon or sausage, and leave out the yogurt and such. Or scramble eggs and then add in the meat on top that is cooked and drizzle maple syrup over. That would be a great savory and sweet.

    How Long Do the Mixed Berry Breakfast Cups Store

    These are best served warm. They will become soft and get soggy. I would recommend only making what you plan to eat at that time since it won’t store well.

    How to Make Berry Breakfast Cups 

    Start out by preheating your oven. Then you want to butter both sides of your bread. Then push one piece of bread down into the muffin pan. It is okay if you happen to tear the bread. Just do your best to push it back together. 

    Then take a sprinkle of cinnamon and sugar and cover the bread cups on the one side. Bake in the oven until golden brown and toasted. Then let the muffin cups cool for five minutes. Once cooled, put in the filling you want, and enjoy. I used yogurt and berries for mine.
