tsp ground cinnamon, plus 1 Tbsp
tsp fine sea salt
slices challah bread (8 oz) day-old cut into 1-inch cubes

Place an oven rack in the middle of the oven. Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Butter a 9 by 13-inch baking dish. Set aside.
In a large bowl, beat the eggs until frothy. Add the milk, maple syrup, cinnamon, salt, and lemon zest. Add the bread cubes and mix until coated. Stir in the blueberries. Pour the mixture into the prepared baking dish.
