Overnight Blueberry French Toast

We had a fantastic blueberry season this year, and overnight blueberry french toast became a new favourite among our guests.  Because we’ve had a couple of emails asking for the recipe, I thought I would post it here!  This recipe’s yield is four servings, but it easily doubles or triples for more servings.  You can use any berries or fruit in season with a corresponding flavored syrup if you don’t have blueberries.

4 cups French bread cubes

4 oz. cream cheese, cubed

2 cups fresh blueberries

4 eggs

1/2 cup milk

1/4 tsp. cinnamon

1/4 cup. maple syrup

blueberry syrup

  • Place bread & cheese cubes in a lightly greased 9″ (23cm) square baking pan.  Layer berries over top.
  • In a small bowl, beat eggs, milk, cinnamon and maple syrup; pour over berries.  Refrigerate overnight.
  • Bake, uncovered, at 375*F (190*C) for 45 minutes, or until egg mixture is set.
  • Serve warm with blueberry syrup.
