I wanted a simple way to use strawberries and blueberries in a breakfast recipe, so I created this strata. It's not an overly sweet recipe so I like to sprinkle it with sugar and serve it with sweetened whipped cream.—Diane Denny, Jacksonville, Florida

Place cake cubes in a greased 13x9-in. baking dish. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese, sugar, salt and cinnamon until blended. Gradually beat in eggs, beginning with one at a time. Stir in cream. Fold in berries. Pour over cake cubes. Refrigerate, covered, overnight.
Preheat oven to 350°. Remove strata from refrigerator while oven heats; sprinkle with coarse sugar.
