Ingredients
  
  • 1 loaf challah bread

  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract

Filling

  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 4 oz ricotta cheese

  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk eggs, milk, vanilla and sugar. Mix everything until it is thoroughly combined.
  • Separately, combine mascarpone, ricotta cheese and powdered sugar using a whisk.
  • Gently fold the blueberries into the mascarpone mixture.

  • Spread any leftover mascarpone within the gaps.
  • Pour the egg wash evenly over the slices of challah bread.
  • Refrigerate the assembled french toast bake to soak in the egg wash overnight. If you are in a time crunch, refrigerate and soak for at least 30 minutes.

  • Bake the french toast casserole for 40-45 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and sprinkle with powdered sugar before serving!
