Beat cream cheese, sugar, margarine, vanilla and cinnamon in large mixing bowl at medium speed with electric mixer until well blended. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Stir in milk. Pour cream cheese mixture over bread and cranberries in large bowl; toss lightly. Let stand 15 minutes, rearranging bread in bowl occasionally to moisten evenly. Arrange bread and cranberries in rows in greased 13- by 9-inch baking pan. Pour remaining cream cheese mixture over bread. Bake 40-45 minutes or until golden brown.
Serve with Cranberry Maple Sauce: Bring syrup to a boil in medium saucepan. Add cranberries and sugar. Cook over low heat 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Cool slightly. Serves 10-12
