1 loaf challah or brioche bread, sliced

4 eggs

¾ cup milk

2 teaspoons vanilla extract, divided

¼ teaspoon salt

½ cup butter

¾ cup packed dark brown sugar

2 tablespoons light corn syrup

1 teaspoon flaky sea salt

¾ cup pecans, chopped


1. Preheat oven to 350ºF.

2. Grease a 9x13” baking dish. Layer the bread slices in the dish.

3. Whisk together eggs, milk, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, and salt to make the custard. Evenly pour custard over bread. Set aside while you make sticky bun topping.

4. Melt butter in a saucepan over low heat. Add in dark brown sugar and light corn syrup. Whisk, then let mixture cook until bubbling. Turn off the heat and whisk in 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, flaky sea salt, and chopped pecans.

5. Pour sticky bun topping over the bread and use a spatula to evenly spread it out, so all the bread is covered.

6. Place in oven and bake for 35-40 minutes, until cooked and golden brown. Remove from oven and let rest for 10 minutes before serving.
