Overnight Blueberry French Toast

Overnight Blueberry French Toast

prep: 15 mins
cook: 1 hr 15 mins
additional: 8 hrs 30 mins
total: 9 hrs 60 mins
Yield: 10 servings


12 slices of day-old bread, cut into 1-inch cubes
2 (8 ounce) packages of cream cheese, cut into 1-inch cubes
1 cup fresh blueberries
12 eggs, beaten
2 cups milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
⅓ cup maple syrup
1 cup white sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 cup water
1 cup fresh blueberries
1 tablespoon butter


Step 1

Lightly grease a 9x13 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 (175 degrees C).

Step 4

Cover, and bake for 30 minutes. Uncover, and continue baking for 25 to 30 minutes, until the center is firm and the 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 for 10 minutes, until the blueberries burst. Stir in the butter, and pour over the baked French toast.
