Bake 50-55 minutes until loaf is golden brown. Cool. Cut into 12 slices; cut slices into 1-inch cubes. Arrange ½ of the bread cubes in a greased 9 x 13 baking pan. Spread cream cheese cubes and blackberries over the bread cubes. Top with remaining bread cubes. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, half & half and 2 Tbsp. Vanilla Bean Chai Drink Mix; pour over bread cubes. Cover with foil; refrigerate overnight. Preheat oven to 350°.

Substitute blueberries for the blackberries. Use 2 cups of milk and omit the half & half.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good with a tweak When we made this, we found that it was a little too bready the way it is written. We made it a second time in an 8x8, cut the bread quantity in half and left everything else the same. Perfect!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous French Toast! We had this for dinner tonight and LOVED it! The Bountiful Beer Bread is wonderful this way, and the new Blackberry Syrup is absolutely delicious! Even my picky eaters liked it. The 9x13 recipe made enough to have leftovers tomorrow morning.
