Heavenly Blueberry Cream Cheese French Toast Bake


Enjoy the perfect balance of sweetness, creaminess, and warmth in every comforting bite!


  • 1 loaf of French bread, preferably day-old
  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 8 large eggs
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Powdered sugar for dusting (optional)
  • Maple syrup for serving


  1. Prepare the Bread: Cut the French bread into 1-inch cubes. Spread half of the cubes in a greased 9×13-inch baking dish.
  2. Create the Cream Cheese Layer: In a bowl, whip the softened cream cheese until smooth.Carefully spread the whipped cream cheese over the layer of bread cubes in the baking dish.
  3. Add Blueberries: Sprinkle the blueberries evenly over the cream cheese layer.
  4. Build the Second Layer of Bread: Place the remaining bread cubes on top of the blueberries, creating a second layer.
  5. Prepare the Custard Mixture: In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, whole milk, maple syrup, vanilla extract, ground cinnamon, and salt until well combined.
  6. Pour Custard Mixture: Pour the custard mixture evenly over the bread layers, ensuring that all bread cubes are soaked in the mixture.
  7. Refrigerate Overnight: Cover the baking dish with plastic wrap and refrigerate the mixture overnight. This allows the bread to absorb the custard, resulting in a rich and flavorful bake.
  8. Bake to Perfection: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Remove the baking dish from the refrigerator and let it come to room temperature for about 15 minutes. Bake in the preheated oven for 45-55 minutes or until the top is golden brown and the center is set.
  9. Serve and Enjoy: Let the Blueberry Cream Cheese French Toast Bake cool for a few minutes before slicing. Dust with powdered sugar if desired and serve with a drizzle of maple syrup.
