- 1 (16 oz) loaf of day-old French bread
- 2 and 1/2 cup milk
- 1 cup half & half (see notes) You can substitute whole milk or heavy cream
- 4 eggs, lightly beaten
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 Tablespoon vanilla
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 1 and 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 cup pecan, chopped
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cube bread then place in a large bowl.
In another bowl, beat eggs, milk, half & half, sugar, salt, and vanilla. Pour over the bread and allow to sit 5 to 10 minutes
In another small bowl, combine with a fork, softened butter, brown sugar, and pecans. This mixture will have the consistency of wet sand.
Pour half of the bread mixture into a greased 8×8 inch pan. (Yes, 8×8-inch pan.) Top with half of the pecan mixture.
Place pan on a cookie sheet with a 1-inch edge to catch any mixture that may boil over. Bake at 350 degrees F 45 to 55 minutes.
The center will be slightly jiggly but will set when cool. Allow to cool 20 to 30 minutes before serving so that the slices will hold together.
