I love overnight french toast. This one is a lot prettier than that old one, lol. Berries always help with that. Also, this one looks a lot better just because you cube the bread. I really like this recipe. Many years ago, I tried a similar recipe with cream cheese and blueberries, but it called for way too many eggs, and that totally ruined it. So I haven't tried a blueberry recipe for many years, until I saw this recipe on Cooking Classy. I'm glad I tried it- it was so good!
When I made this, I just made a half-recipe, since I knew most of my kids wouldn't eat it. The leftovers heat up really well. I used frozen berries- blueberries for the recipe, and raspberries for garnish.
