Description

A delicious dessert, perfect for the cool spring evening but with the brightness of lemon and blueberries to remind you that summer is on its way.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound Artisan Bread
  • 4 whole Eggs
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 1 cup Ricotta Cheese
  • 1 whole Lemon, Zested Plus 1 Teaspoon Juice
  • 3 cups Whole Milk
  • 2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
  • ½ teaspoons Cardamom
  • 3 Tablespoons Butter, Melted
  • 1-½ cup Blueberries, Fresh Or Frozen

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350° F. Grease a 2-1/2 quart casserole. In a large bowl, beat the eggs. Mix in sugar and ricotta cheese. Add the lemon zest and juice, milk, vanilla, cardamom and beat until evenly combined. Stir in the melted butter.

Cut the bread into 1-1/2 inch cubes. Add the bread cubes to the milk and egg mixture and stir until all pieces of bread are completely covered. Let sit for 20 minutes. Stir in the blueberries and pour into the casserole pan.

Bake at 350° F for 40-45 minutes until the top is evenly browned. Remove from the oven and let rest for 15-20 minutes before serving. Top with cream to serve if desired.

I stopped eating sweet cereals years ago and I am so glad that I came across this recipe. It tastes exactly like Fruity Pebbles or Trix or Fruit Loops!! Took me back to the good old days! Thanks for sharing!

I actually had all the ingredients to make this recipe, which was a miracle in itself!! I used raspberries instead of blueberries. The end result was delicious!! Thank you for a wonderful recipe.

Delicious! Followed the recipe exactly. Baked in a 9×9 pan. Will definitely make again.

Delicious! Tasted so creamy and had nice flavors, the amount of lemon was just right. Prepared it for dessert for a family gathering, everyone loved it! My sister-in-law, who is British, loved topping it with cream (as did the rest of us, following her example!). I didn’t have cardamom so just added a small pinch of cinnamon, but other than that, followed the recipe exactly. Winner!
