500g Strong Flour
30g Fresh Yeast
450g Semi Soft Butter
4 Bread Tins

For the Brioche, take the bread tins and brush with butter. In a large mixing bowl place all the dry ingredients and yeast and start to mix with dough hook. Once all ingredients are fully mixed add in the eggs. Once incorporated add the soft butter piece by piece. Once fully mixed you can either use brioche straight away, or preferably place in a clean container over night in a bowl and leave rest and prove. Then take the dough and divide between 4 buttered tins and leave prove until 3 times in size. Brush with egg yolk and then place into a pre heated oven at 174 degrees for 25mins.
Spilt the vanilla pod lengthwise and scrape the seeds form the pod and place the pod, seeds and cream into a pot and bring to a simmer, without boiling. In the meantime whisk the egg yolk and sugar together. Once the cream has come to the simmer, slowly pour half the mix into the egg mix while whisking. Then pour al this mix back into the pot and place back onto a medium hot stove. Cook this mix out while stirring until it coats the back of the spoon. Pass through a sieve and leave to cool.
To Form Bread and Butter Pudding:
Remove crust form brioche and slice into 1 cm slices. Butter a mould, and layer the mould with brioche slice overlapping each piece. Every time there is a layer, pour some angliase over to soak the bread, but not to leave it swimming in anglaise. Keep forming the layers until the baking mould is full. Ensure that all the brioche is soaked with angliase. Place into a pre heated oven at 85 degrees for approx 50 minutes until the bread and butter pudding is cooked.
Leave to cool slightly before serving.
