    Meanwhile, in 2-quart saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add brown sugar and chopped pecans; cook 2 to 3 minutes, stirring frequently, until brown sugar melts and pecans smell toasted. Reduce heat to low; slowly and carefully stir in whipping cream and vanilla. Return heat to medium; heat to simmering. Cook 2 to 3 minutes, stirring constantly, until thickened. Let stand 10 minutes. Serve sauce over warm bread pudding with sweetened whipped cream.

Expert Tips

  • To make 1 1/2 cups whipped cream, place medium deep bowl and beaters in freezer or refrigerator to chill. Place 3/4 cup heavy whipping cream and 1 tablespoon powdered sugar in chilled bowl. Beat on low speed until mixture begins to thicken. Add 1/2 teaspoon vanilla; beat on high speed until whipped cream forms soft peaks.
  • Stale bread became bread pudding, dating all the way back to the 1800s. This updated variation is made with quick-to-fix biscuits.
