Baked Blueberry French Toast Recipe

Ingredients

For this baked French toast recipe, you’ll need the following ingredients.

  • bread cut into 1-inch cubes – I prefer to use sourdough, but you can use your favorite bread.
  • blueberries – you can use fresh or frozen blueberries that have been thawed.
  • milk – I prefer to use whole milk for its rich and creaminess it gives, but you can use your favorite milk.
  • eggs – I use large eggs that are at room temperature for easier mixing.
  • maple syrup or honey – adds a bit of sweetness to the French toast.
  • vanilla extract – adds flavor to the recipe
  • ground cinnamon – adds flavor to the recipe. You can omit if preferred.
  • salt – enhances the flavors in the recipe.

For the STREUSEL TOPPING:

  • flour – I use and recommend all-purpose flour here
  • brown sugar – you can use light or dark brown sugar based on your preference
  • ground cinnamon – enhances the flavor in the streusel. You can omit, if preferred.
  • butter – dice your butter so that it combines more easily.
  • confectioner’s sugar – this is an optional ingredient that I use to dust the top of the final dish for serving.

Step-by-Step Instructions

Arrange cubed bread. I begin by cutting my bread into 1-inch cubes. I love to use sourdough in this recipe, but you can 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 sprayed with nonstick cooking spray or buttered well.

Add blueberries. Add half of the blueberries to the bread cubes and then repeat the layering with the remainder of the bread cubes and blueberries.

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

Bake and serve. 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 it, and serve with maple syrup.

Make Ahead and Freezing Instructions

To store. Allow to cool and cover with plastic wrap or store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

To make ahead. Assemble the recipe without baking. Cover the baking dish with plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator overnight. Remove from the refrigerator as the oven preheats, and then bake according to the directions. The baked French toast may require a few more minutes of baking time.

To freeze. Assemble the french toast casserole without baking. Cover the dish with plastic wrap and then a layer of foil. Freeze for up to 3 months. Allow to thaw in the refrigerator overnight and then back as directed.

    1. Hi Sue –
      I think it’s better with fresh blueberries, but you could possibly use frozen if no ice crystals get into the mixture. I hope you enjoy this! Thanks! xo

  1. wow—my french toast is usually one or two ways–I’ve never baked it and I’ve never used blueberries. Will have to give it a try!

    1. I think you’ll really love it, Megan! It is a heavenly breakfast or brunch! Thanks so much! xo

  2. Well gee whiz, this looks just about perfect. I love the idea of baked french toast – perfect for making sure the results are consistent!

  3. 5 stars
    Can you make this recipe a few hours ahead of time and let it soak together before baking?? I would love to have this for dinner

    1. Hi Angela,
      You certainly can! I give all the details about doing that in the blog post I’ve written before the recipe. I hope you enjoy it! Take care and feel better soon! Thanks!

    1. No, James, you wouldn’t melt the butter. You would just cut the butter up into small pieces and mix with the flour, brown sugar, and cinnamon and crumble it on top. Hope you love it!

  4. I made Baked Blueberry French toast casserole today, I used Challah Bread and Honey, boy was it delish! I will definitely make again. Thanks

  5. Love this!!! I made it recently and am passing it on to my friends and family.
    Next time I might add chopped pecans to topping, but loved it without!!
    Thanks for sharing.
