Cabernet Berry Compote

  • Total Time: 25 minutes
  • Yield: 6 people 1x


Transform berries into a delicious Cabernet Berry Compote with just a few ingredients. It's perfect on crusty bread, over ice cream, or all by itself.


Units Scale
  • 16 ounces Fresh strawberries, (sliced)
  • 6 ounces Fresh blackberries, (large berries sliced in half)
  • 1 tbsp Simply Nature Organic Cane Sugar ((or granulated sugar))
  • 1/2 cup Cabernet Sauvingon ((like Bear Bros. from ALDI)*)
  • 1 tub Mascarpone cheese
  • 1 French Baguette


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees °F.
  2. In a 1-2 quart baking dish, add all the berries. Sprinkle with sugar and toss to coat. Let sit for 5 minutes. 
  3. Add cabernet to berries and toss to combine. 
  4. Bake for 20 minutes. Berries will be soft but not mushy. 
  5. Meanwhile, slice baguette into slices about ½” thick. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, then arrange bread slices on top. 
  6. When the berries are done roasting, remove from the oven and put the baking sheet with the bread in the oven. Bake bread for 5 minutes, just until the tops are toasted. 
  7. Serve berry compote with bread slices and mascarpone. Assemble by spreading mascarpone on toast and topping with compote. 


  • 3 cups of frozen, mixed berries can be used in place of fresh berries.
  • In place of wine, use 2 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar. In addition, let the berries sit in just the sugar for 5 extra minutes in step 2 (10 minutes total) before adding the wine. 
  • Mascarpone can be substituted for cream cheese or eliminated to be a vegan option.
