- 4 slices of cinnamon swirl bread

- 1 teaspoon agave syrup
- 1⁄4 cup ricotta cheese
- Preparation: Start by preparing all your ingredients. Wash and dry your berries. If using strawberries, slice them into thin pieces for easy topping.
- Toast the Bread: Place the cinnamon swirl bread slices in a toaster or oven and toast them until they are golden brown and slightly crispy. Remove and set them aside on a serving plate.
- Berry Topping: In a mixing bowl, gently combine the mixed berries with the agave syrup. Ensure that the berries are coated well but maintain their shape.
- Assemble the Toast: Spread a generous amount of ricotta cheese over each toasted slice. Ensure the surface is evenly coated to get that creamy texture in every bite.
- Top with Berries: Distribute the agave-coated mixed berries evenly over the ricotta-topped slices.
- Serve: Present your Mixed Berries and Ricotta Cheese Cinnamon Toast on individual plates, and enjoy!
Cook’s Tip: Agave syrup is a natural sweetener that’s often sweeter than regular sugar. Using it sparingly will ensure your toast has the right amount of sweetness without being overpowering. Also, consider adding a sprinkle of cinnamon or a drizzle of honey for an extra layer of flavor.
This dish pairs wonderfully with a warm cup of tea or coffee. If serving for dessert, consider accompanying it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for an added treat.
Enjoy this delightful combination of textures and flavors, where the creamy ricotta meets the tanginess of berries on a bed of crispy cinnamon swirl toast. Whether you’re sharing with friends or indulging on your own, it’s bound to be a hit!
