Ingredients

  • 3 large croissants or plain bread
  • 1 cup blueberries fresh or frozen
  • 8 oz cream cheese softened
  • 2/3 cup sugar see note
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla or almond extract
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tbsp powdered sugar optional for serving

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F / 175°C. Grease a 9-inch / 22 cm square baking pan and set aside.
  • On a cutting board, cut bread roughly into 1-inch pieces. 
  • Place bread into prepared pan and sprinkle blueberries evenly across the top.
  • In a medium bowl, beat the cream cheese, sugar, eggs and vanilla together until smooth.
  • While blending, gradually add the milk to make a batter of pourable consistency.
  • Pour batter evenly on top of bread pieces and blueberries.
  • Bake for 30-40 min until puffy and golden. Check halfway through and cover lightly with foil if the bread is browning too much.
  • Remove from the oven set aside to cool for 5 minutes.
  • Dust with optional powdered sugar. Serve & enjoy!

Notes

  • While any baking pan will work, I prefer using a heavy enameled pan for even heat distribution.
  • You can use less sugar such as 1/2 cup if you prefer.
