  • 3 eggs
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 2 Tb butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup granulated white sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 tsp or zest of one lemon
  • pinch of salt
  • 1-1/2 cups blueberries, fresh or frozen

For Glaze:

  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • juice from one lemon
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 2-3 tsp milk


  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease 9X9 in. pan.

  3. In a medium bowl, mix together eggs, whole milk, melted butter, sugar, zest of one lemon, vanilla, and a pinch of salt. 

  4. Pour mixture evenly over pan of bread cubes. Sprinkle blueberries evenly over the top. Make sure the mixture soaks the bread, sometimes pressing down with a flat spatula helps. Let rest for five minutes to soak into the bread. 

  5. Bake uncovered at 350 F for 45-50 minutes, or until top is set.
