French Toast Casserole

My sister asked me to make this for their baby blessing. It was the first time I have made it, and I still haven't tried it since it was eaten up so fast at the blessing that I didn't get a chance, but I've had a similar recipe (fancy french toast) that was delicious. It looks to be a new favorite, especially among the kids.
* from Keeping Up Cookbook

10 slices French bread, crusts removed (or white bread)
1 (8 oz.) package cream cheese, cut into small cubes (I use low fat)
12 eggs
2 c. milk
1/2 c. maple syrup
1 tsp. cinnamon, plus more to sprinkle over
1/2 t. salt

Cut bread into cubes or strips. Layer bread & cream cheese cubes in a greased 9"x13" pan. Whisk together eggs, milk, syrup, cinnamon, & salt. Slowly pour egg mixture over bread and sprinkle with additional cinnamon. Refrigerate overnight.

Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 45 minutes, or until casserole is puffed and center is set. Slice and serve with hot maple or buttermilk syrup.
