Blueberries in season make this a very special breakfast, but I find that frozen berries can work just as well. My grandmother used to make this with strawberries and I always loved to eat it at her house.—Marsha Ketaner, Henderson, Nevada

"What a great recipe, not only easy, but tasty too. My family agreed that this is a keeper and we should make it again. I used Texas toast and a combination of raspberries and blueberries, as that was what I had on hand. When I make it again, I will trim the crusts off the bread, as it was a little chewy to cut and the crusts did not reheat well. We original thought this recipe would have been better as a bread pudding/fruit cobbler served warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, as it is plenty sweet with the cobbler like opping. But, it was actually better as submitted and best with blueberries only."

"What a delicious breakfast bake! I cut the recipe in half for the two of us and omitted the nuts (we're not fans!) It was easy to prepare, absolutely delicious, and something I will definitely make again!"

"Delicious, decadent brunch dish! I substituted milk for cream, and also used strawberries instead of blueberries because that is what I had. I will make it again with blueberries."

"I made this bake this afternoon and I totally agree with MarineMom_texas that this recipe is very much of a winner! The only thing I changed was to use 2 8-oz. French baguettes, cut in 1" slices since my supermarket did not have regular French bread. I had 2 helpings tonight for "brinner"! delowenstein, Volunteer Field Editor"

"We had this delicious breakfast bake this morning and it is a definite winner. It is not only easy to prepare but absolutely delicious. I did halve it for the two of us and used Splenda brown sugar. I do recommend softening the butter before cutting it into the topping. This would be delicious for company as well. I highly recommend this recipe.
