Recipe Details

4 ounces (about 1 cup) cream cheese, cut in to small cubes

2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries

8 eggs beaten

1 ½ cups milk

¼ cup Melted Butter

¼ cup maple syrup, plus more for serving

1 King’s Hawaiian Original Hawaiian Sweet Round Bread loaf, cut in to 1-inch cubes.

Step 1
Heat oven to 350F.
Step 2
Grease a 9inch square baking pan. Place half of the bread cubes in the dish. Distribute cream cheese and half of the blueberries over the bread. Top with remaining bread cubes and blueberries.
Step 3
In a bowl, combine eggs, milk, maple syrup and butter. Pour over bread mixture.
Step 4
Cover with aluminum foil to prevent the edges from browning too much during baking. Bake for about 1 hour or when a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
Step 5
Let stand for 10 minutes before serving. Cut into squares and serve with maple syrup.

Chef Nina Park-Shin Han says:

Cook’s Note: Use other berries, like strawberries, if they are more available. Serve with a side of sausage to balance out the sweetness!
