Overnight Blueberry French Toast Bake makes the perfect easy and delicious make ahead breakfast or brunch. Best of all, this recipe is super easy to assemble the night before and easy to customize. Bursting with sweet blueberries, fresh lemon and a crunchy cinnamon streusel topping.
In a medium bowl, combine the flour, 1/3 cup brown sugar, and cinnamon together. Cut in the cubed butter with a pastry blender or two forks. Set aside in the fridge.
Lightly grease a 9x13-inch baking dish or 2.5-quart casserole dish.
Arrange half of the bread cubes in the bottom of the pan.
