  • 1 cup finely diced strawberries
  • 2 Tbsp maple syrup
  • ½ tsp instant coffee granules
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 loaf brioche bread
  • ½ cup mascarpone cheese
  • 20 mint leaves for garnishing


  • Heat oven to 400°F.
  • In a small bowl, combine strawberries, maple syrup, coffee granules and cinnamon. Set aside.
  • Trim the crust from both ends and all four sides of the brioche loaf to form a rectangular log. Slice in half lengthwise and cut each half into 10 equal cubes.
  • With a paring knife, score a square 3/4 of the way down each cube 1/8 inch in from edges. Arrange cubes, score side up, on a parchment lined baking sheet. Toast in an oven for 3 minutes until golden brown. Remove from oven. While still hot, press down on the small square of each cube to create the cavity for the filling. Let cool.
  • Spoon or pipe 1 tsp mascarpone into each cube.
  • Top each with 1/2 tablespoon strawberry mix.
  • Garnish with mint just before serving.


Make-Ahead: Toasted brioche cube shells can be kept frozen in an airtight container for up to 3 days. Let thaw before filling.
