With so much beautiful produce at the farmers' markets these days, you may as well start enjoying it first thing in the morning! Here's 10 recipes to sweeten up your breakfasts with fresh summer fruit.

Baking with Dorie: Ricotta-Berry Muffins: These aren't your average blueberry muffins. Dorie adds ricotta and lime zest for an inspired take on a classic breakfast treat.

Strawberry-Sour Cream Coffee Cake: This always-popular breakfast bread gets a summer twist with the addition of fresh strawberries.

Blackberry Crumb Muffins: "These airy muffins have large pockets of fruit and a buttery crumb topping."

Sunday Brunch: Strawberry-Rhubarb Cobbler: Fruity and biscuit-topped, cobbler makes for a great weekend breakfast that's easy to prepare. And we won't tell if you scoop some ice cream on top too!

Blueberry Banana Muffins: "These banana muffins are somewhere in between banana bread and an incredibly moist blueberry muffin."

Peach Küchen: Peach-crazy this summer? We can't think of a simpler or more delicious way to feature fresh summer peaches than a warm pan of Küchen.

Cherry Clafoutis: Clafoutis for breakfast sounds like a treat to us! This version gets a summery addition of fresh cherries and pistachios.

Fig Yogurt Bundt Cake: "This moist pound cake is studded with fresh figs. The flavor and texture is similar to a pound cake: buttery, vanilla scented, and just a little dense. Greek yogurt adds a subtle tang."

Apricot Drop Scones: Summer apricots add a sweet, tart freshness to this breakfast treat.

Peach Praline Coffee Cake: "Brown sugar-pecan crumb" sounds like something we'd like to see on all our coffee cakes. Fresh peaches only make things better!
