Overnight Blueberry French Toast

This is a wonderful recipe for Winter when you do not want to get out of that warm bed to make breakfast!


12 slices day-old bread, cut into 1-inch cubes  
2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, cut into 1 inch cubes 
1 cup fresh blueberries 
12 eggs, beaten 
2 cups milk 
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup maple syrup 
1 cup white sugar 
1 cup water 
1 cup fresh blueberries 
1 tablespoon butter  


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. 

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 F (175 degrees C). 
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
This will definitely be a favorite for everyone!
