Brown Sugar Bread Pudding With Crème Anglaise

We prefer fresh French bread from the bakery to achieve the crispiest top and softest center. Save the egg yolks from the separated eggs for the Crème Anglaise.

Yield: Makes 9 servings (serving size: 1 serving bread pudding and 2 tablespoons crème anglaise)
