If you want to make this right away, you can let it sit and soak up the custard for as little as half an hour -- you don't have to leave it overnight. If you are using frozen fruit, do not allow it to sit overnight; also, it will take an extra 10-15 minutes to bake. Stale bread actually makes this better; if you have only fresh bread, let it dry or toast it first.
1 cup sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 cups half-and-half
1/4 cup butter
12 slices bread
2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon cinnamon
Beat together the eggs, sugar, vanilla and half-and-half. Butter the bread and place 1/3 in bottom of a 9-by-13-inch pan. Add 1/3 of the berries; sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Pour 1/3 of the egg mixture over. Repeat layers two more times. Cover and place in refrigerator overnight. Bake at 350 F for 45 minutes.
