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.

    This was an absolutely delicious recipe. I hope to try it and let you know if we succeeded. We can still get blueberries here “down under” . Thank you for posting it.

    • We’re so glad that you enjoyed it and that you were able to find it! Our wild blueberries are finished, but we’re still able to get high bush blueberries from the Annapolis Valley. We’re sorry that we missed meeting you while you were here -my parents said that getting to know you while you were here was a highlight of their time looking after the B&B for us!
