    24 Slices of bread, cubed
    (may use French bread, brioche, or any type white bread).
    1 lb. Cream cheese - cut into cubes
    2 C. Blueberries
    1/4 C. Orange zest
    24 Large eggs
    1 qt. Milk
    1 C. Maple syrup
    3 C. Sugar
    2/3 C. Cornstarch
    3 C. Water
    3 C. Blueberries
    1 T. Lemon juice
    3 T. Butter

    1. Place 1/2 the bread cubes on the bottom of a spray-coated 12x20x2" pan. Scatter cream cheese, 2 C. of blueberries, and orange zest over bread. Place remaining bread cubes over blueberries.
    2. Mix together eggs, milk, and maple syrup. Pour evenly over entire pan. Cover and refrigerate 4 hours or overnight.
    3. Preheat oven to 350°. Bake covered for 40 minutes. Uncover, bake an additional 30 - 40 minutes, or until puffed, browned, firm and thoroughly cooked. Cut into 24 squares and keep warm.
    4. For sauce: in a large pot, thoroughly blend sugar and cornstarch. Stir in water. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until mixture boils, thickens, and turns clear - about 7-8 minutes.
    5. Stir in blueberries and simmer until berries burst. Remove from heat and stir in butter and lemon juice. Keep warm.
    6. To serve: pour about 1/4 to 1/2 C. sauce over each portion. Serve hot.
