  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, heavy cream, sugar and brown sugar until smooth. Add in the cinnamon, vanilla bean paste, nutmeg and cloves.
  • Place the chopped cinnamon rolls into a greased 9x13 glass pan. Pour the egg yolk mixture over all of the cinnamon rolls then press them down into the mixture to be sure that they are properly soaked. Pour the milk over the top of the cinnamon roll pieces. Sprinkle the chopped pecans over the surface.
  • Cover with tin foil or plastic wrap and place into the fridge to chill and soak for 1 hour.

  • Once baked, remove from the oven and place onto a cooling rack to cool for several minutes while you make the glaze.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar, sugar and cinnamon. Add in the milk and whisk together until smooth. Drizzle the glaze over the hot bread pudding. Slice and serve warm.
