Overnight Blueberry French Toast
An easy breakfast to throw together the night before and pop in the oven in the morning! It is so yummy!
Recipe type: Breakfast
Serves: 8
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
  • ⅓ cup maple syrup
  • 2 cups milk or cream (I prefer cream)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 Tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 Tablespoon butter
  1. Arrange ½ of the bread cubes in a greased 9 x 13 pan.
  2. Sprinkle cream cheese cubes and blueberries evenly over the bread cubes.
  3. Top and evenly sprinkle with remaining bread cubes.
  4. Mix together eggs, syrup, milk and vanilla in a large bowl.
  5. Pour over bread cubes. Press the bread cubes slightly down to absorb the milk/egg mixture. Cover pan with foil. Let chill in refrigerator overnight.
  6. 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 blueberry syrup.
  1. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, 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.

    I made this recipe yesterday and it was sooooo good! Only change was I doubled the amt. of blueberries that go on the bread, just cause we had them. mmmmm, everyone loved it, thanks for sharing.

  27. WOW!!! This looks amazing! I'm making it for breakfast tomorrow. Our day trip to the beach was interrupted by Hurricane Irene. This looks like a great consolation prize for the family!!! :)Following you and excited to learn more amazing recipes! Thanks!!!BTW, I love the look of your blog. It's gorgeous!

  28. Madison

    Mmm! Looks good and I love make ahead breakfasts. Because let's be honest…who wants to get up early enough to make something like this before work/school?! Yay for night before prep! :) Thanks for sharing.

  29. 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.

  30. 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.

  31. 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.

  32. 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.

  33. 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!

  34. 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.

  35. 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!!!!

  36. 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?

  37. 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.

  38. Cheryl

    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!

  39. Jess

    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 :)

  40. Tanya

    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??

  41. Tammy

    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:)

  42. Kelly

    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..

  43. Katie

    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!

  44. Kristina

    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!

  45. 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!



  46. Sherry

    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.

  47. 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!

  48. Lorraine sterbenz

    This blueberry French toast recipe looks great and would like to try making it. But does it REALLY take a dozen eggs?? Thanks,

  49. Deana Werkowitch

    Amazing recipe!! I prepared it this morning and added a touch of cinnamon. This will be a hit for my next brunch party!

  50. Barbara Yang

    I just made this overnight blueberry french toast for my parents and friends this morning and it was such a HIT! Everyone complimented me on it but it was actually so easy to make! I actually added raspberries to this and it gave it a nice tangy kick! Definitely will be making this again!

  51. amanda

    i was wondering if i could make this eggless. i usually sub banana or apple sauce but the 12 eggs seem like a lot. my daughter is allergic and im looking for a yummy christmas morning breakfast :)

  52. Deb

    I made this with 1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt and 1-3/4 cups 2% milk because I didn’t have cream and wanted a rich texture. I didn’t make the blueberry syrup because we canned some last summer, but it really pulled the flavors together and would be worth the time to make. Overall great dish that would be wonderful for when company comes or for bunch. I will cut the recipe in half when its just the 2 of us though. (You know its good when I write the recipe and tape it to the inside of the pantry door!)

  53. Su

    have been making this recipe for years. One comment from the past that I follow is to take your bread and spread the cream cheese on it and dot with blueberries and place in pan. Then proceed as written. That way the cc is spread out and you don’t get a mouthful.

  54. Deborah Mielke

    Outstanding recipe!! My company loved it. I served with maple and blueberry syrups. I used a little more liquid ( 1 egg and 1/2 cup cream) as the Texas Toast seemed to need it. So easy to make. And making at night really makes company breakfasts so much easier. It is truly a chef’s dish!!
