  • 1 Loaf Cinnamon Swirl Bread
  • 2 Cups Fresh Blackberries
  • 16 Ounces Cream Cheese
  • 1 2/3 Cups Whole Milk
  • 10 Eggs
  • 1 Tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1/3 Cup Maple Syrup

Optional Toppings

  • Blackberry (or Maple) Syrup
  • Whipped Cream
  • Additional Blackberries


  • Slice or tear bread into 1 inch chunks. Add half to a prepared baking dish. Next, cube the cream cheese and toss half over top of the bread along with half of the blackberries. Repeat this one more time with the remaining bread, cream cheese and blackberries.
  • Combine milk, eggs, vanilla extract and maple syrup into a large bowl and whisk to combine. Pour over the top of the bread, cream cheese and blackberries evenly so the bread is well coated.
  • Cover and refrigerate 1 hour or overnight. When ready to bake preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Bake covered with foil for 30 minutes, then remove foil and bake an additional 20 minutes until top is golden and slightly crisp. Serve warm with optional toppings. Enjoy!
