  • 6 to 8 brioche or croissants, diced
  • 1 qt. milk
  • 8 oz. sugar
  • 7 eggs
  • 1 t. vanilla extract
  • Butter and sugar to grease the pan

2). You can add some chopped dried fruit to the diced dry bread, if you like. Place evenly in a greased pan.

3). Beat eggs with milk, sugar and extract and pour over the top of mixture.

4). Prepare Bain Marie method, where pan sits in a larger pan that has water in it. Cook in oven at 400 degrees F for 20 minutes. Cooking it in a Bain Marie allows for more even cooking.
