This one's a hit! I pulled this out of an old issue of TOH and am so glad I did. Yes, it's a bit high on sugar, but that's probably why it's so good! For the occasional breakfast indulgence, this will definitely make a reappearance in my kitchen.

This was delicious, but I'd like to cut down on the sugar next time. I used only 4 TB of butter and used Splenda for 2 of the TB of white sugar. Next time, I think I will use Splenda for all three and cut the brown sugar in half.

Very tasty! It was a great breakfast and could have even passed for a sort of cobbler if you added ice cream like one reviewer said! I added a bit more cinnamon. The only downside is the portion sizes are very small.

I subbed Splenda for the sugar and sourdough for the bread. VERY good!

I used 6 slices of honey wheat bread, decreased the butter to 4 tbsp. and increased the cinnamon to 1 tsp. I didn't have blueberries on hand, but had extra strawberries and blackberries so I used those. Topped with whipped cream or a little powdered sugar and this is incredible!

I made this in a small casserole instead of the individual ramekins. It was great! We had a little vanilla ice cream on top, Yum! I think I will try it with peaches and see how that works.

So delicious!! I would decrease sugar just a tiny bit but I am afraid it may take away from how good this dish is

Made this for breakfast this morning-yummy! There were some modifications-I was making this for 2 so I decreased the bread by half, the butter to 2 tbsp, increased the cinnamon to a full tsp, and decreased the brown sugar to 1/2 cup. I kept the full amount of berries. It turned out great, the bread soaks up the juice from the berries and the cinnamon and sugar keep everything tasty. I put light whipped cream on the top and served with coffee. Definitely a keeper
