Overnight Blueberry French Toast

  • Yield: 1 serving


  • 12 slice(s) day-old bread, cut into 1 inch cubes
  • 2 package(s) (8 oz.) cream cheese, cut into 1 inch cubes
  • 1 cup(s) fresh blueberries
  • 12 eggs beaten
  • 2 cup(s) milk

  • 1/3 cup(s) maple syrup
  • 1 cup(s) white sugar
  • 2 tablespoon(s) cornstarch
  • 1 cup(s) water
  • 1 cup(s) fresh blueberries

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.

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

Remove the bread cube mixture from the refrigerator about 30 minutes before baking. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Cover and bake 30 minutes. Uncover and continue baking 25 to 30 minutes, until center is firm and surface is lightly browned.

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.
