Blueberry French Toast Bake

Blueberry French Toast Bake done pan

Want a special breakfast for Sunday morning?  This dish is bursting with sweet blueberries, a bit of brown sugar and hint of vanilla.  

This is another dish from the VanGuard’s Cookbook that my sister-in-law gave me.  The women who submitted recipes for the cookbook are feeding their soldiers very well!

Here’s what you’ll need:

Blueberry French Toast Bake ingr

  • 1 loaf French bread, cut in cubes
  • 6 egg whites
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 tsp. sugar
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • a pinch of salt
  • 12 oz. frozen blueberries
  • 2 Tbs. butter
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar

Spray a 9×13 pan with cooking spray and place the cubed bread in it.  In a bowl, combine the egg whites, eggs, milk, sugar, cinnamon, vanilla and salt.  Pour over the bread.  Cover and refrigerate for 6 hours or overnight.

30 minutes before baking, take the berries out of the freezer and set them aside.  Take the baking dish from the fridge and turn the oven to 350 degrees.  Bake the dish for 30 minutes.  Meanwhile, cut the butter and brown sugar together to make a crumb topping.  Remove the baking dish from the oven and sprinkle the berries and crumb topping over it.  Bake, uncovered, for 15-20 minutes.

I served this with blueberry syrup.  Yum!

  5. This looks delicious. My family loves anything with blueberries — smoothies, muffins, quick breads, etc. I love your blog and your concept. Feel free to visit my blog and website any time — I hope you’ll try some of my family-friendly recipes!!

  6. I dont know what it means to “cut” the butter and brown sugar…

    • Cheryl, cutting the butter and brown sugar together, just means to kind of crumble them together using a fork or a pastry blender. Hope that helps.

  7. Yummy! I would try this with strawberries too!

  8. making this for Easter breakfast! Thanks for another great recipe!

  9. forgot to add that I am also making a Tres Leches cake so I’ll have a lot of soaking going on overnight!

    I followed this one exactly, well, no I did use a Wegmans whole wheat baguette and I liked it (especially the top where the brown sugar was!!) but my kids didn’t love it. This is was odd as they love french toast. Even with maple syrup it wasn’t a hit. I had to give it to my mom as I knew I’d eat the whole thing if I kept it!

  11. I am in HEAVEN! Another fabulous blueberry recipe from you! Super yum! :-)

  12. Can you make this with a loaf of regular store bought bread? It sounds delicious!

    • Cheryl, I think you could, but you wouldn’t want to let it soak in the egg mixture for long. The store bought bread won’t hold up as well as the french loaf.
