Blueberry French Toast Cobbler

blueberry_french_toastI first made this for my daughter’s Girl Scout troop when they were Brownies and they have loved it ever since. It’s always on our breakfast short list when we’re planning a camping menu. We love it for its sweet blueberry compote on the bottom and crusty French bread toasty top. The girls, who are now in high school, made this last spring at Camp Lyle McLeod during our annual encampment. It was a huge hit. A while back, my sister, Kathy, asked me for this recipe so here it is, Kat!


12-inch Dutch oven

2 Large mixing bowls


Bread knife

Cutting board

Rubber spatula

Large serving spoon

Topping Ingredients

1 baguette of French bread, sliced ¾-inch thick

5 eggs

¼ cup sugar

¼ teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon vanilla

¾ cup milk

Filling Ingredients

4½ cups blueberries

½ cup sugar

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1 teaspoon cornstarch

3 tablespoons butter

Powdered sugar

Prep Work

Start 33+ coals in a chimney.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the eggs, ¼ cup sugar, milk, baking powder, and vanilla. Whisk thoroughly. Add the bread slices, turning once to coat evenly. Cover and allow to set until all the egg mixture has been soaked up by the bread. In the time it takes you to get everything else prepped, this should be ready.

Heat the bottom of your Dutch oven and melt the butter. In another large mixing bowl, combine blueberries, ½ cup sugar, cinnamon, and cornstarch. Pour blueberry mixture into Dutch oven. Place soaked bread on top of blueberries. Bake in a 450°F oven, using 22 coals on the top and 11 coals underneath, for 25 minutes or until blueberries are bubbling and bread is golden brown. Remove from heat and sprinkle with the powdered sugar. You don’t need any syrup with this, but you still could, if you wanted to. Serves 6-8.
