The night before: Grease a 9x13 baking dish. Break up half the bread by tearing or cutting into 1 inch or so cubes. Scatter cubed cream cheese over the top. Top with the remaining bread, also broken or cut into cubes.Sprinkle with the cinnamon and the sugar. Pour maple syrup over the top (the real stuff always tastes better!).   Pour the beaten eggs over the top next. Cover with foil and place in the fridge overnight. The next day: Preheat oven to 350°F.  Bake uncovered 45-60 minutes, depending on your oven and how mushy you like your french toast.Sprinkle with powdered sugar before serving

Add baked apples to the mix for a truly heavenly experience. Or, if you're a blueberry kinda person, frozen or fresh will certainly make life sweet!
