  1. Prepare an 8×8 inch baking pan lightly coated in cooking spray. If you are using a pan of a different size you will have to adjust the number of eggs and the amount of cream and milk so that there is enough to coat the bread. Set aside. In a medium sized bowl combine softened cream cheese, sugar, vanilla, egg, and flour. Whisk until well blended. Set aside. Place slices of bread across the bottom of your prepared pan. Use half slices of bread and smaller pieces to fully cover the bottom of the pan. Spread the cream cheese mixture on top of this layer of bread. The cream cheese layer will be thick. Place remaining bread slices on top of the bread slices in the pan. Try to overlap the bread in a different pattern for the top layer. Set aside. In a large mixing bowl combine eggs, milk, cream, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg. Once mixed pour slowly over bread and cream cheese. Try to coat all of the bread pieces as much as possible. Adjust bread slightly to allow egg mixture to flow between bread slices. Cover pan with aluminium foil and refrigerate overnight. When you are ready to bake remove pan from the fridge and keep on the counter for 30 minutes before baking. Grab a medium sized bowl and combine brown sugar, butter, cinnamon, and flour. Mix with a fork or your fingers until crumbly and well combined. Once the butter is totally mixed in add the chopped pecans. Cover bread in your prepared pan with the streusel topping. Bake at 350 degrees for between 45-60 minutes, until golden brown. A toothpick should come out clean when inserted into the center of the pan. Cut into slices. Serve with a dusting of powdered sugar and fresh fruits, whipped cream, chocolate chips or maple syrup. Enjoy!
