1/2 loaf brioche

Remove crust from the brioche loaf and cut the loaf into cubes. Toast cubes in the oven until golden brown. In a saucepan heat whipping cream double cream salt and vanilla bean until just boiling. Turn off heat and allow vanilla to infuse.

Meanwhile in a stainless steel bowl whisk together the eggs and sugar. Slowly add hot cream whisking constantly to make a custard. Strain the mixture through a fine sieve and set aside.

Toss the brioche cubes with custard and allow to soak.
