Black Raspberry Bruschetta

Think of this no-recipe as a twist on more traditional berry shortcakes. No baking up biscuits (though you know I love making them!). Here, you use good quality bread, toast it up & top with fresh whipped cream, berries & a drizzle of maple syrup. I made mine with black raspberries, but feel free to swap in whatever berries you find at the market.


  • Good-quality bread, toasted
  • Fresh whipped cream
  • Black Raspberries, or whatever you have on hand
  • Pure maple syrup
  • Fresh lemon thyme, leaves only (optional)


  1. Arrange the bread on a platter. Spread some whipped cream on top.
  2. Add the berries to a bowl. Using the back of a fork, mash them slightly.
  3. Spoon the berries on top of the whipped cream. Drizzle a bit of syrup on top. Sprinkle with lemon thyme leaves. Serve immediately.
