Very nice taste, and it rose up and achieved a nice puffy result. However, the cream cheese did not add anything at all to it, so I would totally eliminate it next time. The cream cheese chunks did not melt, just remained exactly where you placed them before baking, browned on top, and actually did not have much taste. The end result looked like toasted marshmallows on top. For someone like me who does not make French Toast but likes it a lot, this was a good recipe and one I would make it again.

To turn this recipe from 4 stars to 5 stars I made a couple of changes: Mix the cream cheese with some sugar and cinnamon to taste and blend it by hand or with a mixer. Spread the mixture on the bread you're using (I used cinnamon-raisin bread) stack the "frosted" bread 3 high, then cube it. I also used real maple syrup. It is so much better this way as there is cream cheese in every bite and it is sweetened. 1/2 cup syrup just was not enough sweetness for this big batch, IMHO. I tried it the original way and I prefer it the sweeter way.

Fantastic and easy to make. I didn't have french bread at home, so I used regular white bread. Also, I softened the cream cheese and spread it on the bread and then cut it into pieces before placing it in the casserole dish. My kids love maple syrup, so I added 1 cup with 1 cup of milk with 6 eggs with 1 tbsp cinnamon in my 9 x 9 pan. Very moist and tasty!
