Baked Blueberry French Toast

This month I thought I take part in the Secret Recipe Club hosted by Amanda's Cookin. Basically, you just sign up and she sends you a blog to check out. You pick one recipe from that blog and make it. You can alter it if you like, you just have to give that blog the credit for the original. Then, everyone who is taking part in the Secret Recipe Club posts their new recipe on the same day at the same time.

     I was so excited when I got my blog, Barbara Bakes. The problem was, I wanted to make more than one of her recipes! They all looked so good. Finally, I decided on this overnight baked blueberry french toast, and I was not disappointed.
     I didn't follow the recipe, although the original looks delightful. When I went to the store to buy my "chewy, dense bread," I saw English Muffin bread. I had never seen it before, and thought it would be so good as french toast. Another change I made was to add cream cheese and a blueberry sauce. I will definitely be making this again. I'll probably wait until we have company, as a 9x13 dish is pretty big for just the three of us. We ate this for several breakfasts that week!

Baked French Toast
6 slices of chewy, dense bread; torn (I used English Muffin bread)
4 eggs
2 Tbl melted butter plus enough milk to make 1 cup
 1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp all spice
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup agave (Barbara says you could use 1/2 cup sugar)
1-1/2 tsp cornstarch
8oz cream cheese, cubed
2 cups blueberries
1/4 cup butter, melted

Blueberry Sauce
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
2 Tbl cornstarch
1 cup blueberries
1Tbl butter
  • Place bread in a large pan. Mix egg, butter/milk, and vanilla. Pour over the bread. Refrigerate overnight.
  • Combine all spice, cinnamon, agave, cornstarch,blueberries, and cream cheese. 
  • Pour the blueberry mixture in with the bread, and carefully stir it up. 
  • Drizzle the top with the melted butter. 
  • Bake @ 400* for 30 minute or until golden brown
  • Meanwhile, make the blueberry sauce: Combine the sugar, water, cornstarch, blueberries, and butter. Cook until thickened. Pour on warm toast.
