Playing How To Make Whipped Ricotta Cloud Toast with Apricot Jam & Crushed Hazelnuts

Past winner of Rach's "Great American Cookbook Competition" Fanny Slater shares a sweet breakfast of whipped ricotta on toast with jam and hazelnuts.

"The ricotta can be whipped in a food processor, blender, or with an electric hand mixer. For more flavor, the bread can also be drizzled with olive oil or melted butter and baked on a sheet tray at 400°F for 4 to 6 minutes, flipping once halfway through. Mint can be cut into ribbons—or chiffonade—by evenly stacking and then rolling the leaves into a long, cigar shape and then thinly running your knife through the herbs. Watch your fingers!"—Fanny

  • ½ cup whole-milk ricotta cheese
  • 2 tablespoons honey, divided
  • Pinch coarse salt
  • 4 slices thick-cut rustic bread, such as ciabatta or sourdough, toasted
  • ¼ cup apricot jam
  • ¼ cup chopped hazelnuts, toasted
  • ¼ cup roughly chopped or gently torn fresh mint


Serves: 4


In a food processor, pulse the ricotta, 1 tablespoon honey, and the salt until whipped and airy. Place the whipped ricotta in a piping or plastic storage bag. If needed, use scissors to snip a corner of the bag.

Arrange the toast on a platter and pipe the ricotta onto each slice to resemble a fluffy cloud. Top the ricotta with apricot jam and hazelnuts and drizzle with the remaining 1 tablespoon honey. Garnish with the mint and serve.
