Step-by-step instruction without your screen going to sleep

  • 2 cups water, for steaming
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 5 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 1/2 cups whole milk
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup (plus more for serving, if desired)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 (1 pound) loaf brioche bread, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 cup frozen blueberries


  • Large Bowl
  • Measuring Cups
  • Whisk
  • Step 1

    Pour 2 cups water into the pot. Spray the Ninja Multi-Purpose Pan (or 8-inch round baking pan) with cooking spray. Push in the legs on the Crisper Tray, then place the tray in the bottom position in the pot.

  • Step 2

    In a large bowl, whisk eggs, cream, milk, maple syrup, cinnamon, salt, and vanilla until fully combined. Add the brioche pieces and toss until evenly coated. Let the bread sit for 5 to 10 minutes to absorb cream mixture. Then add the blueberries and toss to combine.

  • Step 3

    Transfer the brioche mixture to the prepared pan and press into an even layer. Place the pan on the tray.

  • Step 4

    Close the lid and flip the SmartSwitch™ to Rapid Cooker. Select STEAM & BAKE, set temperature to 315°F, and set time to 20 minutes. Press START/STOP to begin cooking (the unit will steam for approx. 15 minutes before baking).

  • Step 5

    When cooking is complete, carefully remove the pan and serve French toast casserole warm with additional maple syrup as desired.
