Step 1: Into cubes, slice the bread, and let them dry for about an hour.

Step 2: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 350 degrees.

Step 3: In a large bowl, beat the eggs until well blended. Then, add the milk along with sugar and vanilla. Mix well until combined.

Step 4: In a baking pan, place the bread cubes and pour in the mixture. Let the pieces of bread soak into the milk and egg mixture.

Step 5: In the brown sugar, dissolve the butter. Mix well. Add the pecans and stir. Then, pour this over the soaked bread. Gently fold.

For this recipe, I suggest using 1-day-old bread as it absorbs the milk and egg mixture better.
