I’ve got blueberries on my mind lately. Beautiful little blue berries. They’re delicious in so many baked goodies like this Blueberry Buttermilk Breakfast Cake, Blueberry Pie, Blueberry Turnovers, Blueberry Pancakes or you can even make homemade jam with them. And recently I was thinking they needed to be in a french toast recipe. A Blueberry Baked French Toast. How amazing does that sound?
You might have caught a glimpse of this on Instagram this past weekend…I shared it on Saturday and it’s my most liked photo yet! Looks like we’re all on the same page with our love of blueberry french toast!
Anyway getting back to the recipe, this dish is a twist on my Overnight Apple Baked French Toast. I swapped out the apples a few other ingredient and added blueberries.
Let’s just say the results were definitely worth it.
This french toast is creamy and bursting with beautiful blueberry flavours. This recipe is a keeper!

Tips and recipe notes:
- I think the type of bread used in this recipe can make or break this french toast. I used homemade Challah bread because of it’s chewy texture and slight sweet flavour. It also soaks up the cream perfectly. But if you don’t have this type of bread, a french loaf would work great as well.

- If you are using frozen blueberries, toss them first in about 1 tsp of flour. This will help to make sure the blueberries don’t stain the bread and turn everything blue.

- For an special touch, right before serving sprinkle the french toast with some icing sugar and lemon zest.

- Serve with maple syrup, cream or whipping cream, and enjoy!
