Berry Brunch Strata Recipe

Publisher Photo
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

Ingredients

  • 1 prepared angel food cake (10 to 12 ounces), cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 12 eggs
  • 1 cup half-and-half cream
  • 2 cups fresh strawberries, chopped
  • 2 cups fresh blueberries
  • Coarse sugar
  • Sweetened whipped cream, optional

Directions

  1. 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.
  2. Preheat oven to 350°. Remove strata from refrigerator while oven heats; sprinkle with coarse sugar.
  3. Bake, uncovered, 45-50 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Cover loosely with foil if top browns too quickly. Let stand 10 minutes before cutting. If desired, serve with whipped cream. Yield: 12 servings.
