Ingredients

  • 3 8 ounce French baguettes

  • 8 ounce mascarpone or cream cheese, room temperature

  • 2 teaspoon vanilla

  • 2 cup powdered sugar

  • 2 cup fresh blueberries

  • 6 eggs

  • 2 cup milk

  • ¾ cup granulated sugar

  • 1 ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

Directions

  1. Grease a 3-quart baking dish. Cut each baguette into 1-inch slices, cutting to but not through bottom of loaf. For filling: In a medium bowl beat mascarpone and 1 teaspoon vanilla until smooth. Beat in powdered sugar until combined. Fold in blueberries. Spoon filling between baguette slices; arrange baguettes side by side in prepared dish.

  2. In a large bowl whisk together eggs, milk, 1/2 cup granulated sugar, remaining vanilla, and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon. Pour over bread. Cover; chill overnight.

  3. Preheat oven to 350°F. Uncover dish. In a small bowl stir together remaining 1/4 cup granulated sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon. Sprinkle over bread. Bake, uncovered, 40 to 45 minutes or until egg mixture is set, covering with foil the last 15 minutes if necessary to prevent overbrowning. Remove; let cool slightly. Makes 12 servings.
