12 eggs
2 cups milk
1/3 cup maple syrup or honey

Sauce:

1 cup sugar
2 Tbsp cornstarch

Cut bread into 1 inch cubes; place half in a greased 13 x 9 inch baking dish. Cut cream cheese into 1 inch cubes; place over bread. Top with blueberries and remaining bread. In a large bowl, beat eggs. Add milk and syrup; mix well. Pour over bread mixture. Cover and chill 8 hours or overnight. Remove from refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Cover and bake at 350 for 30 minutes. Uncover; bake 25-30 minutes more or until golden brown and the center is set. In a saucepan, combine sugar and cornstarch; add water. Bring to a boil over medium heat; boil for 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Stir in blueberries; reduce heat. Simmer for 8-10 minutes or until berries have burst. Stir in butter until melted.
