Berry French Toast Bake


  • 1/2 loaf Italian bread cubed
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup flavored creamer (I used Irish Cream)
  • 3/4 cup  milk
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp ginger
  • 8 oz package cream cheese softened
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 cup rinsed blueberries
  • 1 cup hulled and quatered strawberries

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Beat 3 eggs into cream and milk.  Mix in cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger. 
  • Pour egg mixture over bread and set aside.

  • Mix sugar into cream cheese until smooth.
  • Spray 8x8 pan with nonstick spray.
  • Fill bottom of pan with 2/3rds of bread mixture.
  • Top with 1/2 the berries.

  • Dollop cream cheese over berries.

  • Top with remining bread and finish off with remaining berries.

  • Bake for an hour to an hour and 15 minutes checking for doneness.

***Changes I would make next time would be to use the whole loaf of bread so I have more bread mixture to cover the top.  I will probably up the eggs to 4 and the milk combo to 1 1/2 cups when I add more bread.  I would also double the cream cheese mixture.  No complaints about the original finished product though.  The kids inhaled it!
