Baked French Toast


  • 12 slices day-old bread, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 2 (8 ounces) packages cream cheese, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 12 eggs, beaten
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries (for pour-over)
  • 1 tablespoon butter

Cooking Instructions

Step 1: Lightly grease a 9 x 13-inch baking dish.  Arrange half the bread cubes in the dish, and top with cream cheese cubes.  Sprinkle 1 cup blueberries over the cream cheese, and top with remaining bread cubes.

Step 2: In a large bowl, mix the eggs, milk, vanilla extract, and syrup.  Pour over the bread cubes.  Cover, and refrigerate overnight.

Step 3: Remove the bread cube mixture from the refrigerator about 30 minutes before baking.  Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Step 4: Cover, and bake 30 minutes.  Uncover, and continue baking 25 to 30 minutes, until center is firm and surface is lightly browned.

Step 5: In a medium saucepan, mix the sugar, cornstarch, and water.  Bring to a boil.  Stirring constantly, cook 3 to 4 minutes.  Mix in the remaining 1 cup blueberries.  Reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes, until the blueberries burst.  Stir in the butter, and pour over the baked French toast.
