Berry Compote | Sprinkles For Breakfast

My younger brother, Zach, isn’t much of a sweets guy. I’m sure you have met these type of people in your life. The ones who pick potato chips over a cookie or take an extra helping of dinner instead of saving room for dessert. I have never really understood this logic (I would rather skip dinner and go straight to dessert), but I have come to learn that there are people like that out there.

I have also come to learn that just because you are not a “sweets person” does not mean you don’t like sweets at all. These self-proclaimed savory food lovers have a secret. They usually have one of two sweets items that they really really love. That thing that makes them skip the extra helping of dinner so they can save room for the good stuff – the dessert.

Berry Compote | Sprinkles For Breakfast

For my brother, that is cheesecake. Since he was little, he has always preferred cheesecake to any other type of cake. He was that weird little kid who was ordering New York Cheesecake at restaurants while all the other kids were ordering ice cream and brownie sundaes. At this point, he likes to think of himself as a bit of a cheesecake snob – and he will tell you that the BEST part of a cheesecake is always the BERRY COMPOTE.

I know…it’s shocking. But he swears that a good berry compote can turn the most average cheesecake into something divine. Crazy, I know. But I’m not one to argue with someone who feels SO passionately about cheesecake. Enter…my recipe for Berry Compote.

Which, in case you were wondering, WAS approved by my brother.

Berry Compote | Sprinkles For Breakfast

It turns out berry compote is very easy to make and can be used for a lot more than just cheesecake.

For example…


French Toast


Ice Cream


Angel Food Cake

The list goes on and on. In this recipe, I used a mix of different berries – but you can use any combination you want. Make it an all strawberry compote or all blueberry compote. The choice is up to you. You can also use frozen fruit here instead of fresh fruit. No need to defrost either! The mixture will take a little bit longer to come to a boil, but your final product will be just as delicious!

POV: My mental state at the moment.

Feeling a lootttt like a snowman trying to survive a winter in Southern CA. And it's not going very well. ⛄️

(If you want to see how well you are holding up, check out the list in my "OOTO" highlights" and see how many resonate).

I have talked to a lot of people in the last few weeks and it seems everyone is feeling off or unsettled or just freaking exhausted this winter. So I if you are feeling this way too, I want you to know that you are not alone.

For me, I have decided to take a little break. No social media or emails or working on lesson plans or budgets until January 2022. Because I just have nothing left.

So I hope everyone has a good end of their year (and I hope you spend it making ALL THE COOKIES).

Love and Sprinkles ❤️
