I made this for a fancy Mother's Day brunch. Everyone loved it! I halved the recipe, but I almost wish I hadn't. I also made it in a 9x9 instead of a 13x9. Just a few other things I did differently; for the milk I substituted half the amount with half-and-half, and used the rest 2% milk. I didn't have thick bread either, so I used thicker-than-average bread, soaked it in the milk mixture overnight as the recipe stated, and then I made 2 layers of bread when I assembled it in the morning. The blueberries and sugar mixture cook nicely and make a sweet syrup that soaks into the bottoms of the bread. No syrup needed! I warmed syrup in the microwave but forgot to take it out to serve; and nobody even noticed because it was so good on its own. My only complaint is that the tops of the bread, although browned nicely, just didnt have a pretty look to it in my opinion. Next time I may sprinkle a little extra cinnamon to give it some visual texture. I will definitely make this again!
