Sun-Maid Berry Merry Breakfast Cups

It was a beautiful fall morning on Friday when I came home after dropping off the kids to school and was greeted by a holiday gift pack from Sun-Maid at my doorstep..........just in time for our weekend brunch.

Sun-Maid Raisin Bread


According to Sun-Maid Raisin Bread's Bring Back Brunch Survey, 59 percent of Canadian families with children under 18 define their brunch personality as Saturday/Sunday savour brunchers seeing the occasion as a way to enjoy a leisurely meal and spend time with their loved ones on the weekend. 72 per cent of Canadian families eat brunch at least once a month for a change of pace and time to enjoy. 

In response to these findings, Sun-Maid has developed four signature brunch recipes to help families get together in the kitchen and around the table. The new recipes - Berry Merry Breakfast Cups, Leftover Makeover French Toast, Starry Morning Raisin French Toast and Rise and Shine Raisin Coffee Bake.

 I tried the Berry Merry Breakfast Cups and found it to be a really quick and easy recipe with healthy ingredients like raisins, yogurt and berries. Unlike some other brands, Sun-Maid raisin bread contained lots of plump and juicy California raisins with just the right amount of cinnamon for my taste. Since the bread already contained cinnamon, I reduced the amount of cinnamon mentioned in the recipe because I felt that the amount mentioned in the recipe would make the flavor a bit too intense for my taste. If you are feeling a bit indulgent you can substitute the yogurt with your favourite pudding, whipped cream or even some ice cream.
