Ingredients

  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 cup brown sugar, firmly packed and divided
  • 1 1/2 cups pureed sweet potato
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 6 egg yolks
  • 2 (1 lb, 4 oz) loaves white bread, crusts removed
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 stick cold unsalted butter, diced (plus more for pan)
  • 1/2 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 1/2 cup toasted and chopped pecans

Preparation

Preheat the oven to 350°. Generously butter a 13 by 9-inch baking dish.

 

In a medium saucepan, combine the milk, sugar and 1/2 cup brown sugar divided, sweet potato puree, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg. Cook over medium-high heat, just until the mixture begins to boil. Remove from the heat and set aside.

 

In a medium bowl, whisk the egg yolks until smooth and combined. Using a ladle, pour 1/2 cup of the hot milk mixture in a slow, steady stream into the yolks, whisking constantly. Add another 1/2 cup of the hot milk mixture and whisk to combine. Pour the egg mixture into the milk mixture. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring constantly, until it's thick enough to coat the back of a wooden spoon, about 3 to 5 minutes. Strain the custard and reserve.

 

Cover the bottom of the baking dish with 1 layer of bread slices. Pour about 1/4 of the custard mixture over the bread. Repeat with remaining bread and custard, ending with custard. Cover and refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight.

 

Sprinkle the bread pudding with the pecan crumble. Bake until the crumble mixture is golden and the custard is bubbly, about 45 minutes. Serve warm.

 

Pecan Crumble:

 

In a medium bowl, combine flour, 1 cup brown sugar, butter, oats and pecans and mix with a hand mixer on low speed, until well combined.
