Butter the dish.
Fill with bread cubes. We use frozen bread which holds its shape better but day old bread would be an alternative. We prefer seed bread such as Dave’s Killer Bread “Good Seed” or older croissants are great choices!
Blend eggs, brown sugar & vanilla in blender.
Slowly pour the milk onto the egg mixture in the blender with the blender still running.
Pour the egg mixture over the bread & then top with seasonal berries.
In small sauce pan combine topping ingredients and bring to a simmer for a minute, thickening the mixture.
Pour over the surface of the bread cubes and bake at 350 for about 30-35 minutes, until the bread on top is golden brown and a knife comes out clean.
You can also marinate the bread and mixture overnight without the fruit and then add the fruit and topping just prior to baking.
A special finishing touch… Add a scoop of “Tillamook Old-Fashioned Vanilla Ice Cream”.
