Ingredients

12 slices dry white bread, cut into 1/2-inch cubes (about 8 cups)

2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, cut into 3/4-inch cubes

1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries

12 eggs

2 cups milk

½ cup maple syrup or maple-flavor syrup

Blueberry-flavor, maple, or maple-flavor syrup

Directions

1. Place half of the bread cubes over the bottom of a well-buttered 3-quart rectangular baking dish. Sprinkle cream cheese and blueberries over bread cubes. Arrange remaining bread cubes over blueberries.

2. In a large mixing bowl; beat eggs with a rotary beater; beat in milk and the 1/2 cup syrup. Carefully pour egg mixture over the bread mixture. Cover dish with plastic wrap and chill for 2 to 24 hours.

3. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Remove plastic wrap and cover dish with foil. Bake for 25 minutes. Uncover and bake about 25 minutes more or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean, and topping is puffed and golden brown. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving. Serve warm with blueberry-flavor or maple syrup.

From the Test Kitchen

To dry bread slices, arrange bread in a single layer on a wire rack; cover loosely and let stand overnight. Or cut bread into 1/2-inch cubes; spread in a large baking pan. Bake uncovered, in a 300 degrees F oven for 10 to 15 minutes or until dry, stirring twice; cool.
