  • 1/2 cup oat bran
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons packed brown sugar, divided
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 container (8 ounces) BelGioioso Ricotta con Latte® cheese
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt

  • 1 cup thick blueberry yogurt

Cooking Instructions

Heat oven to 350°F.

Combine flour, oat bran, 1/2 cup brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon in a large bowl. Whisk the ricotta, plain yogurt, eggs, butter and vanilla in another medium bowl. Stir ricotta mixture into dry ingredients until just moistened. Fold in 1/4 cup blueberries.

Pour into a greased 8-inch square baking dish. Sprinkle with remaining blueberries and 2 tablespoons brown sugar. Bake for 33-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack.

Fold whipped cream into blueberry yogurt. Cut cake; dollop pieces with cream mixture.

Chocolate French Toast

  • 2 tablespoons baking cocoa
  • 1-3 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 cups chocolate milk, divided
  • 6 eggs
  • 8 tablespoons (1 stick) butter, cubed and divided
  • 12 thick slices white bread (1-inch slices)
  • Sweetened whipped cream
  • Fresh sliced strawberries and chocolate curls

Cooking Instructions

Whisk cocoa and cinnamon in a large bowl. Add 1/2 cup chocolate milk; whisk until smooth. Whisk in eggs and remaining chocolate milk until blended.

Melt 1 tablespoon butter on a hot griddle. Dip bread slices in the chocolate milk mixture, soaking on each side for 30 seconds. Toast bread in butter on the griddle for 2-3 minutes per side or until sides are golden brown, adding butter as necessary.

Top with whipped cream. Garnish with strawberries and chocolate curls.
