15 slices of cubes bread drizzled with, egg, cream cheese, milk and blueberries

Recipe given to Rock Village Bed and Breakfast from The Candlelight Bed and Breakfast in Sackets Harbor, New York.
Ingredients - Strata
15 slices of white bread, cubed (crust removed)
8 ounces cream cheese
1 cup fresh blueberries
8 eggs
2 cups milk (using 1 cup half & half and 1 cup milk makes it more like custard)
1/3 cup maple syrup
Cinnamon to taste
Ingredients - Sauce
1 cup sugar
2 Tablespoons cornstarch
1 cup water
1 cup blueberries
1 Tablespoon butter

Strata: Place 2/3 of bread cubes in a greased 13 x 9-inch baking dish. Cut cream cheese in small cubes and dot over bread. In a large bowl, beat remaining ingredients and pour over bread. Cover with foil and refrigerate overnight.
Remove dish from refrigerator at least 30 minutes before baking. Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Uncover and bake an additional 30 minutes or more until golden brown and center is set. (You may need to reduce the temperature about 25 degrees for the last 10 minutes or so to make center set. Otherwise, it tends to become very well done on the outside.) If the dish is very full, it will take longer to set up. It tends to puff while baking. Remove from oven and let it rest about 5 to 10 minutes before serving. You can cut off the very outside crust to make it more appealing to the eye.
Sauce: In a small saucepan, mix sugar and cornstarch. Add water and bring to a boil for 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Stir in blueberries and butter.
