Overnight French Toast

Overnight French Toast

12 slices bread -- crusts removed
16 ounces cream cheese (low-fat works well too)
1 cup berries
12 eggs
2 cups milk
1/3 cup maple syrup or honey
Fruit Topping:
1 cup sugar
2 tablespoons corn starch
1 cup water
1 cup berries
1 tablespoon butter

Cut bread into 1 inch cubes, place half in a 13x9x2 inch pan. Cut cheese into cubes, spread over bread. Top with fruit, and then remaining bread.
In a large bowl, beat eggs, milk, and syrup together. Pour over bread.
Cover and chill 8 hours, or overnight. Remove from fridge 30 minutes before baking.
Cover with foil and bake at 350 for 30 minutes. Uncover and bake 25-30 minutes more.

Meanwhile, combine sauce ingredients and bring to a gentle boil in a saucepan. Cook until nicely thickened. Serve over french toast.
