Baked Blueberry French Toast


I served this during my mom and sister-in-law's visit earlier this month and had several requests for the recipe. I hope you give it a try. You won't be sorry!

12 slices white bread with crusts removed
1 8 oz. package cream cheese, chilled
1 cup fresh (or frozen) blueberries - peaches are good, too
12 eggs
2 cups milk
1/3 cup maple syrup

1 cup sugar
2Tbs. cornstarch
1 cup water
1 cup fresh (or frozen) blueberries
1 Tbs. butter

Cut bread into 1 inch cubes. Put half of the bread in a greased 9 x 13 baking dish. Cut the cream cheese into 1 inch cubes and place over bread. Top with blueberries and remaining bread. In bowl, beat eggs. Add milk and syrup and mix well. Pour over bread mixture. Cover and chill 8 hours or overnight. When ready to serve, remove from refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Cover and bake at 350 for 30 minutes. Uncover and bake another 25-30 minutes, or until golden brown and the center is set. Remove from oven and let set 10 minutes before serving.

In saucepan, combine sugar, cornstarch and water. Bring to a boil and boil for 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Stir in blueberries. Reduce heat and simmer for 8-10 minutes or until fruit has burst. Stir in melted butter.

Spoon toast as individual servings with sauce over.
**You can also serve with warm maple syrup in place of the sauce.
