Blueberry Baked French Toast

Every bite of blueberry French toast casserole is full of texture and flavor… from the cinnamon-spiced bread and juicy blueberries to the crisp brown sugar topping.


  • For the toast:

    • 1 loaf French bread
    • 1 1/2 c. frozen blueberries 
    • 8 eggs
    • 2 c. milk
    • 1/2 c. heavy cream
    • 3/4 c. brown sugar
    • 1 T. vanilla extract 
    • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
    • 1/2 tsp. nutmeg
  • For the topping:

    • 1/3 c. brown sugar, packed
    • 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
    • 4 T. unsalted butter, melted
    • 2/3 c. plus 1 T. all-purpose flour


  • Grease a 9x13 pan with butter or cooking spray and preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a large bowl, add eggs, milk, heavy cream, brown sugar, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg. 
  • Chop the bread into ¾  to 1-inch cubes and put it in the bowl with the egg mixture and toss well until all the liquid is absorbed.
  • Add frozen blueberries and gently fold in until blueberries are evenly distributed.
  • Pour the bread and egg mixture into the pan, cover evenly with the crumb topping and bake for 45-50 minutes. 
  • Serve with a light dusting of powdered sugar or your favorite syrup.
