Blueberry Cream Cheese Bread Pudding


                        It's that time of the year when you are able to eat endless fruit desserts -
                     

Are you like me and crave fresh fruit desserts? When I go out to restaurants,
I rarely order chocolate desserts. I love cobblers, crisps, and pies.
You will love this easy dessert and it's great for when you have guests
coming over. Perfect to make ahead and just throw in the oven. 

Blueberry Cream Cheese Bread Pudding

1 ( 16 ounce ) loaf French Bread, cubed
1 ( 8 ounce ) package cream cheese
3 cups blueberries - divided
6 large eggs
4 cups milk
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup butter melted
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 jar blueberry preserves

1) Arrange half of bread cubes in a greased 9 by 13 pan. Sprinkle with
cream cheese and blueberries, top with remaining bread cubes.

2) Whisk eggs, milk, sugar, butter, syrup and cinnamon, pour over bread
mixture. Cover and chill 8 hours or over night.

3) Bake covered at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Uncover and bake for
30 to 40 minutes more or until set in the middle. Let sit for 5 minutes.

4) Stir together remaining blueberries and preserves in a small pot.
Heat until warm. Serve it over the bread pudding, as a sauce.

Note - I like to serve this with fresh whipped cream or
vanilla ice cream and a fresh sprig of mint.

  1. Yum! This looks so delish. We have a ton of blueberries from our backyard to use and I could easily adapt this using a gluten free french loaf. Thanks for sharing.
