Ingredients

  • 1 baguette (21 inches/53 cm)
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar

Method

Diagonally cut baguette into 1/2-inch (1 cm) thick slices.

Cinnamon Butter:
In bowl, mix butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, cinnamon, cardamom and salt.

Spread on both sides of baguette slices. In layers, overlap in greased 13- x 9-inch (3 L) glass baking dish.

In large bowl, whisk eggs with egg yolks. Whisk in milk, cream, maple syrup, sugar and vanilla; pour over bread. Top with waxed paper and 2 small plates; weigh down with heavy cans, pressing to absorb liquid. Refrigerate for 3 hours or for up to 12 hours.

Remove cans, plates and paper. Sprinkle with blueberries. Bake in 350°F (180°C) oven until puffed and blueberries pop, 55 to 60 minutes.
