4 cups day-old bread, cubed
2 1/2 cups milk
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 tsp almond extract
1 pint Michigan blueberries
Whisk eggs in a large bowl. Stir in milk, sugar and extract. Add bread crumbs and toss to absorb mixture. Set aside for 15 minutes.
Re-toss mixture and gently stir in berries. Spoon into a lightly greased 8x8 glass baking dish and bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. Spoon into ramikins or serving bowls and top with a dopple of whipped cream just before serving.
I've also used raspberries, blackberries or a combination of any of the three types of berries. May be made the night before, refrigerated and baked the next morning.
Serves approximately 8-10.
