Overnight Blueberry French Toast

Be sure and join me on Facebook for the latest updates on new recipes!

I was looking for something new and fun for breakfast and stumbled upon this recipe and now it has become a breakfast staple in my home. I love that it can be prepared the night before and popped in the oven the next morning!  Not to mention the delicious blueberry syrup!  It is AMAZING!


and topped with the blueberry syrup….MmmMm!



Found recipe on: Real Mom Kitchen

French Toast:

12 slices bread, cut into cubes (french or Texas toast work well.  I prefer Texas Toast.)
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, cut in cubes
1 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)
12 large eggs
1/3 cup maple syrup
2 cups milk (I use 1 cup milk and 1 cup cream)


1 cup sugar
1 cup water
2 Tablespoons cornstarch
1 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)
1 Tablespoon butter  


Arrange 1/2 of the bread cubes in a greased 9 x 13 pan.
Sprinkle cream cheese cubes and blueberries evenly over the bread cubes.
Top with remaining bread cubes.
Mix together eggs, milk, and syrup.
Pour over bread cubes and cover pan with foil. Let chill in refrigerator overnight.
Bake covered with foil at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Remove the foil and bake for another 30 minutes or until fluffy and golden. Top with sauce.

Serves 8.

Sauce: Cook water, sugar, and cornstarch until thickened. Stir in blueberries and simmer for 10 minutes. Add butter and stir until melted. Serve over the french toast.

    This is so going to be our Christmas morning breakfast :-) Thank you for all of the wonderful recipes!

  93. 93

    This recipe looks great, but unfortunately I am not a fan of cream cheese – any suggestions for substitution?thanks – would love to make this Christmas morning for my family.

  94. 94

    I can't wait to try this! Going to have it tomorrow…Christmas eve morning!

  95. 95

    I am making this for our Christmas morning. thank you for the recipe. Merry Christmas!!!

  96. 96

    I am making this for Christmas morning as well! Can't wait.

  97. 97

    I personally did not care for this recipe. It came across tasting too processed. The folks at work that tend to eat more processed foods or have sweet tooths thought it was great, but this is not something I would make again.

  98. 98

    I made this for Christmas breakfast this morning and wasn't very impressed. I followed the recipe exactly. Even though it was cooked completely, it tasted way too eggy and didn't have much flavor at all.

  99. 99

    I made this for Christmas but I cut the cream cheese in half. I made it again yesterday and I put raspberries in instead of the blueberries and added a "good" 1/3 cup of sugar. The raspberry one was fabulishes! Also only 1/2 of the cream cheese it calls for.

  100. 100

    I found this on Pinterest and made it today for our church breakfast. Everyone loved it!! Thanks for giving me a "do ahead" dish that everyone can enjoy!

  101. 101

    Overnight Blueberry French Toast?????? YES PLEASE!

  102. 102

    This is really tasty. I made it with sprouted bread, which is what I had on hand, added some fresh nutmeg and used all heavy cream and it is great. My 2-year-olds are gobbling it up, right now. The syrup is too sweet for me, but I'll adjust that next time. Thanks for sharing!

  103. 103

    definately gotta try this……. :0

  104. 104

    Maybe marscapone?

  105. 105

    What is sprouted bread?

  106. 106

    Sprouted wheat bread is a wholesome, nutrient-dense and easy-to-digest bread. Made from sprouted wheat flour, this bread recipe is light, airy and sweet.

  107. 107

    I have used this recipe for years. In fact entered it into a Recipe Contest held each year and was a finalist. Had to bake it up and take the recipe for final juding and took 1st. place in the Brunch catagory and 2nd place over all. My oldest granddaughter entered it in a bake off at their church when she was just 12 and took the grand prize with it. This was always on our Christmas Brunch table. So easy to just pop in the oven on Christmas morning Would just do up some bacon and sausage patties and we were good to go. Since we now celebrate Christmas on Christmas Eve rather than Christmas Day I miss doing this for Christmas morning. So I would always do it up for our last day of work before the holiday break so we could have it for our morning break. All the ladies I worked with loved it.

  108. 108

    My kids refuse to eat the bread ends, so I freeze them for bread pudding. This looks like another way I could use them. Thanks so much for the inspiration!

  109. 109

    I'm cooking this right now!…Though I'm not sure if it will turn out :(…never try to read a recipe at 530am lol…I didnt 'overnight' this recipe at all..so hopefully itll still work out. I almost mixed the blueberry syrup with the milk and eggs until i re-read it. I also only had 11 eggs (the bottom literally fell out of my 12th lol)Fingers crossed!!!!

  110. 110

    I would like to make this more dinner (in my family, breakfast is our favorite dinner). Do you think it'll be fine if I prep this right when I wake up–7ish? And then cook it around 430-ish?

  111. 111

    Just made this for breakfast, except I used blackberries. It was a hit!

  112. 112

    Hate to say it, but I made this and it was DISGUSTING. I don't know if it's because I used frozen blueberries, or if my oven isn't working right. I wasn't expecting it to taste so much like egg. It tasted like egg with blueberries on top. It was mushy as can be too. I would have been better of making regular french toast and with the blueberry syrup.

  113. 113

    Made this for people at work and they are all asking for the recipe! It was a total hit!

  114. 114

    You really have a way of words. Great style of delivering the information and I could relate to it. Such a great information for me. Thanks for this. provigil

  115. 115

    This looks delicious. I must try this soon. Thank you!

  116. 116

    I have made this recipe every year for about 10 years, as part of my Christmas Brunch . My family always asks for it and we love the next day leftovers! Almost to good to be breakfast, but more like dessert. Make a day ahead and so easy to just pop in the oven in the morning. YUMMY!

  117. 117

    Oh… and I swap it up sometimes to make it more Christmassy by making it with cranberries! Works great!

  118. 118

    I’m going to attempt to make this, but the same morning! lol. Hopefully having it not sit overnight won’t affect the taste. I guess we are going to find out :)

  119. 119

    This sounds so yummy…I can not wait to try it…do you think it would work with some other frit too, like maybe strawberries??

  120. 120

    Can’t wait to try this

  121. 121

    I made this for my MOPS group one morning and it was a HUGE hit!! I love that it’s yummy without being cloyingly sweet! Great recipe:)

  122. 122

    This dish looks fabulous. But that is where it ended for me. It just has too much of an egg taste for me. And it didn’t seem to be sweet enough..

  123. 123

    Did you use the frozen texas toast?

  124. 125

    I made this for my company breakfast. It was a hit and actually looked just like the picture. Very yummy!

    Cant wait to make for Christmas Morning! Thanks for sharing it might become a family tradition. Will let you know.

  127. 128

    I just made this for Christmas day breakfast and it was a huge hit! Really easy to make, and just pop in the oven while we opened presents. Very tasty! Will definitely make again!

  128. 129

    Just made this for breakfast and it is AMAZING!!!

  129. 130

    This looks so yummy, i can’t wait to make it next weekend for me and my guy when we have a weekend away. Anywho, I was just wondering what kind of bread? is it like a thick sandwich bread for like at Wal-Mart? I want to make sure that I get the right thing so it doesn’t fall apart. thank you!

  130. 131

    I made this blueberry french toast for my friends for a lazy Sunday morning brunch, and it was a huge hit! It disappeared so quickly! But that might also be because we’re college students with voracious appetites ;) Because it was such a success, I decided to post the recipe on my blog, credit to you! Hope you’ll be able to check it. Thank you so much for this wonderful recipe!



  131. 132

    Have made several of your recipes, each have been a success! Made this frenchtoast last night, baked it up this morning and it turned out EXACTLYlike you said it would! :) it even looked exactly like the photo, which (for me) doesn’t always happen. Halved the recipe since its just my husband, myself and two small boys and still have a few servings left despite everyone having seconds! Thanks so much for the recipe! Also love the feta, pecan salad you have, with the homemade dressing…. It’s one of our favorites.

  132. 133

    Love this!!! Lost it on my timeline, had to google fun recipes. Making again! Really amazing thank you

  133. 134

    Taking a day off to hast some friends for New Year’s Day Brunch. Among other things, I’m making this delicious looking dish. My rule is never plan to make something for company that hasn’t been previously cooked and tested but this one looks like it will be great. No need for the test! Happy New Year!
