Thank you for sharing this excellant recipe. We enjoyed this dish so much,the only changes I made was to substitute fresh raspberries for blueberries or peaches. I used orange/mango juice for the syrup instead of apple juice as that was all I had. Absolutely wonderful.
Not sure what I did, but my bread cubes came up through the top during baking and became dry and gross. Also, the cream cheese layer wasn't very good-if I was going to try again, I would mix in some fruit and sugar or something. As it was, it was like eating a fried egg with plain cream cheese on top. I didn't try the syrup listed here, I used regular store bought syrup. Next time, I'll just get up early and make regular French toast.
