Fresh Fruit Bruschetta with Orange-Honey Cream

CATEGORIES: Fruit, Sara, Small Bites
So often appetizers are salty and fattening.  Definitely nothing wrong with that, but this is a nice change of pace!  It would be a great addition to a brunch spread, or as finger food for a baby or wedding shower.

It’s basically a twist on a classic bruschetta.  This version involves a medley of fresh fruit that sits on top of bite-sized cinnamon toast and is then drizzled with a heavenly sour cream sauce flavored with honey and orange.

Let’s get started.  You can use any fruit you like.  I pick mostly based on color and then what’s in season or on sale.  In this case, I’m going with strawberries, mango, and kiwi (click that link for my tip on how to cut a kiwi fruit!)

You’ll want all of your fruit chopped in a small dice, and in similar sized pieces.  You can definitely do the chopping in advance; just keep the fruit covered, and in the fridge.

You can make the sauce ahead of time too.  And let me tell you, it’s amazing what just 3 ingredients can do here.  You’ll mix sour cream, honey, and orange zest.  If you need any extra moisture to get the consistency you want, just add a little of the juice from the orange.  That can be covered and stored in the fridge as well.

For the bread, you’ll want to use either a baguette or a thin french bread loaf.  I can always find both at my local grocery store.  The difference in size is shown below; the French bread (at least where I buy it) tends to be a little bit larger, and is usually a bit softer and fluffier.  The baguette toasts up a little crispier.  They both work just fine.

Slice your loaf into about 1/2 inch slices or a little thinner.

Place them in a single layer on a baking sheet (I always line mine with foil for easy clean up!) and brush the tops with melted butter.

Next you’ll sprinkle them with cinnamon sugar.  See where we’re going here?  Mini cinnamon toast!

After they’ve toasted in the oven and cooled to room temp, you’ll spoon the fruit mixture on each one.

Then give them a drizzle of the yummy sour cream sauce and you’re done!  Fresh, beautiful, and absolutely heavenly.



  1. I clicked on the link and saw the Triple Churned Challenge and the bloggers involved, but I don't see where you actually vote….

    Can you give any more info on that?


  2. Hi, girls! This is my first time at your blog (via the Breakstone competition) and I absolutely love it! I'm a huge fan of food blogs and yours is right up my alley. I look forward to finding hidden treasures and lots of inspiration here!

  3. I just made these last wed and posted about it on my blog. I got the idea from Annie's Eats and this recipe is sooooo good! The only difference is she suggested using vanilla yogurt. I will have to try it with the sour cream mixture. YUM YUM

  4. I voted this morning. I'm sure I will forget to do it each day between now and then. Remind us on your Facebook and twitter feeds, and I will do it again! (I just need the prompting.)

    Oh, and this recipe looks so good. Yum!

  5. I voted..not for money but because I LOVE YOUR FOOD!!!! 🙂
    I'll try to remember to stop by and vote everyday…good luck.

  6. This looks so yummy. I wanted to vote but I am from Canada so I am not allowed. 🙁 We also don't have this brand of sour cream. Do you think a greek yogurt might work well as a replacement?

  7. I've voted twice for you girls and will continue to vote every day. I read through all of the other recipes and your recipes sound the best- by far!

  8. I voted!

    These look so yummy and I wanted to make them for Easter brunch with my family but I checked my email and my sister sent me a note about this post and that she was going to be making them! Ha – she beat me to it! Either way, I will be enjoying them soon 🙂

  9. YUM! I'm making these for a brunch on Monday – thank you!

    Good luck on this challenge! I'd vote but it's only open to residents of the USA. Sad face.

  10. Tonight we had friends over to dye eggs with us and I made dinner. These were the appetizer and they really were to "dye" for! I voted for yall too!

    I wanted to let you know that I am in love with your blog. I tell everyone I meet about it! I honestly feel like I have become a really good cook in this past year and totally owe it to yall!

  11. made this for easter brunch as well, and it was a hit! … we had six adults and had plenty of leftover, so I'd probably cut up a little less fruit next time.

    loved the sauce! i did add a tiny splash of OJ in it – and I would totally sub this topping on orange rolls rather than a sugar based icing – to cut the sweet a little. loved it!

  12. I made this for a girl's night last night and it was a HUGE hit!!! Delic. I ate fourteen of them, I just couldn't help myself. 🙂

  13. I made this for a friend's wedding shower, and everybody went CRAZY for it. The combination of the cinnamon sugar, fruit, and sour cream sauce is divine, and they're just so pretty on a platter. And the great thing is, it looks so much more difficult than it actually is. Love it!

  14. Ok my toddlers are the pickiest eaters on the planet and they gobbled these right up. Must be cuase they have sugar. Totally going on my favorite recipies list!!

  15. I am making this for my next party. We had it tonight for dinner (which was breakfast…eggs and bacon) and it was to die for. I was afraid I would eat it all before my hubby got home to eat. Thanks for this awesome recipe!

  16. I just made these tonight for the first time. Oh. My. Gosh. I could have doubled the recipe and still not have had enough. I can tell I will be craving these again

  17. We had these tonight with feta scrambled eggs. They were beautiful,seriously yummy, and a good pairing with the salty eggs. Easy too, because I could do most of it ahead of time. Thanks so much!

  18. These are so ridiculously good. My sister-in-law made them for a family party a while back and my mouth is watering just looking at the recipe again. My, oh my. You girls are just crazy good. 🙂

  19. Amazing recipie but pls what is the replacement for sour cream because we do not have it in Jordan thanks for yr urgent reply God bless you

  20. A friend of mine brought these to a party a few years ago, and she referred me to your site for the first time. Now it is the first place I look for new recipe ideas! Then, I made them for a potluck and one of my friends said that she felt like she had just stepped into the “orgasmatron” when she ate them. You girls are really that good! Thanks!

  21. Used the orange cream sauce but subbed in Greek yogurt for sour cream and used it as a topping for a red white and blue creamy fruit salad. Seriously delicious!!!!
