Directions

Blueberry Maple Syrup:

In a saucepan over medium heat, combine blueberries, maple syrup and orange peel. In a small cup dissolve cornstarch in 2 tablespoons water; add to blueberry mixture. Cook, stirring constantly, until mixture boils; reduce heat and simmer until mixture thickens, about 1 minute. Serve warm.

Bread Pudding:

Butter a 9 x 13-inch baking dish; set aside. Cut bread into 1-inch cubes; set aside in a large bowl. In a separate bowl whisk eggs, milk, syrup, cream, cinnamon and orange rind; pour over bread cubes. Turn into prepared dish. Cover with plastic wrap and chill one hour. Heat oven to 350⁰F. Stir blueberries into the bread mixture; dot top with small dollops of cheese. Bake until puffed and golden brown, 40-50 minutes. Serve warm with Blueberry Maple Syrup.
