Baked Blueberry Brunch
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.
Mix together eggs, milk, and maple syrup. Pour evenly over entire pan. Cover and refrigerate 4 hours or overnight.
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.
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.
Stir in blueberries and simmer until berries burst. Remove from heat and stir in butter and lemon juice. Keep warm.
To serve: pour about 1/4 to 1/2 C. sauce over each
portion. Serve hot.
