Cut the bread up into little 1 inch squares – this is where I’d use 2 loaves of artisan french bread next time. The centre pieces in the bake weren’t as good as the ones with the crust. Next time, I’d just use the crust pieces. You try it out and decide what you like better!

Once the bread is all cut up, place in the well buttered baking dish and pour the egg and cream mixture over it. Mix around so it’s all covered. If you’re making it the day before, put it in the fridge covered with plastic wrap.

Time for the crumble. Mix all the crumble ingredients together, except for the pecans. Use a pastry cutter, or a fork, and ensure all is mixed well.

Bake Up

Once you’re ready to put it in the oven, top with the crumble and then the pecan pieces last. Bake at 375 degrees for 45-50 minutes. The top will get nice and crisp and the inside will be warm and tasty! Stick a toothpick in it to see if it’s done…did it come out clean? You’re good to go!

Be sure if it sat in the fridge over night, that you don’t put the glass dish right into the oven – it’ll crack. Let it sit at room temperature for about 20-30 minutes.
