Author of the Southern Bits & Bites Series, Suzanne Johnson, joined us in the 13WMAZ studio to make a very berry treat that anyone can enjoy.

Ingredients

1 French loaf

2 cups fresh blueberries

8 eggs

3 cups milk

1 cups heavy cream

2 cups sugar

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 tsp Cinnamon

1 tsp nutmeg

1 Tbsp butter

Instructions

  1. Cut the French loaf into ½ inch cubes.
  2. Coat the bottom and sides of a 9x13 baking dish with butter.
  3. Place the cubes of bread and blackberries in the dish, distributing evenly.
  4. In a large bowl, whisk together the remaining ingredients and pour over bread and blackberries.
  5. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour to overnight.
  6. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  7. Bake for 30 minutes covered with foil and 30 minutes uncovered. The center should still be a little “jiggly” in the middle.
  8. Allow to cool for 15 minutes before serving.
