Yield:
1 9x13-inch casserole

Ingredients

Casserole:

  • 12 slices bread, cut into 1-inch cubes

  • 2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, cubed

  • 1 cup fresh blueberries

  • 12 large eggs

  • 2 cups milk

  • cup maple syrup

Sauce:

  • 1 cup water

  • 1 cup white sugar

  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch

  • 1 cup fresh blueberries

  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter

Directions

  1. Grease a 9x13-inch pan and spread half of the bread cubes over the bottom. Top with cream cheese and 1 cup blueberries. Layer remaining bread cubes on top.

  2. Mix together eggs, milk, and syrup in a bowl. Pour over the bread cubes in the pan. Cover and refrigerate for 8 hours, or overnight.

  3. Remove from the refrigerator and let stand for 30 minutes.

  4. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  5. Bake in the preheated oven, covered, for 30 minutes. Uncover and continue to bake until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean, about 25 minutes more.

  6. While casserole bakes, combine water, sugar, and cornstarch for sauce. Bring to a boil until thickened. Reduce to a simmer and add blueberries and butter until cooked down. Serve on top of casserole or on the side.

Cook's Note:

You can use strawberries or peaches instead of blueberries, and frozen instead of fresh. Can use honey instead of maple syrup.
