Uses: Le Creuset 2-Quart Enameled Cast-Iron Heart Oven
1 (16-oz) loaf cinnamon swirl bread
1-3/4 cups whole milk
1 cup heavy cream
4 large eggs
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/8 tsp cardamom
Sweetened whipped cream, for serving
Cut the cinnamon swirl bread into 1" cubes and spread on a baking sheet. Let sit at room temperature overnight to dry. Alternately, bake the bread cubes in a 325°F oven for about 15 minutes or until dry. Allow to cool.
Preheat the oven to 350°F.
In a large bowl, whisk together the milk, heavy cream, eggs, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cardamom. Gently fold the bread cubes into the milk mixture. Refrigerate for 30 to 45 minutes.
Remove the bread mixture from the refrigerator and stir gently. Transfer the mixture to the heart oven. Bake for 55 to 65 minutes, or until the bread is puffed and golden. Serve warm with a sprinkle of confectioners' sugar and a dollop of sweetened whipped cream.
