French toast is a favorite breakfast recipe around my house and this baked blueberry version is an absolute treat! So simple to put together, it doesn’t take anytime to prep. I’ve included make-ahead instructions for this baked blueberry french toast as well since I love to prep it the night before and then just pop into the oven the next morning as we are all getting ready for work, school or church. I also love to serve it when Sam has friends over for the weekend. Teenage boys devour it!

To make it, I begin by cutting my bread into 1-inch cubes. I love to use sourdough in this recipe, but you can really use any bread that you have on hand – leftover biscuits, sandwich bread, challah bread, or whatever your family loves. Then, I arrange half of the bread in a 9×13 baking dish that has been sprayed with nonstick cooking spray or buttered well.

Next, I add in half of my blueberries on top of the bread cubes and then repeat the layering with the remainder of the bread cubes and blueberries.

Whisk together the milk, eggs, honey (or maple syrup), vanilla, cinnamon and salt and then pour over the bread and blueberries. Then, mix together the flour, brown sugar, cinnamon and butter until well combined and crumble over the top.

Pop into the oven and bake until set and golden brown, about 40 minutes. Remove from the oven and dust with confectioner’s sugar, if you are using, and serve with maple syrup.

Make Ahead!
Prep the baked blueberry french toast the night before without adding the streusel topping and baking. Then, the next morning, add the topping and bake as directed.
