    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
    2. 2
      Cut the crusts off the bread and cut into 1 inch cubes. You should have about 3 1/2 cups of cubes.
    3. 3
      Arrange bread cubes on a baking sheet and toast in the oven till light golden brown, about 10 minutes.
    4. 4
      Let bread cubes cool but leave oven on.
    5. 5
      Over medium heat in a saucepan heat the half and half, cream, salt and vanilla bean, stirring occasionally.
    6. 6
      When it reaches a fast simmer(don't let it boil), turn off the heat.
    7. 7
      Set the mixture aside for 10-15 minutes for the vanilla to infuse.
    8. 8
      In a large mixing bowl, whisk the eggs and sugar together.
    9. 9
      Whisking constantly, gradually add the hot cream mixture.
    10. 10
      Strain this into another large bowl, to smooth the mixture and to get rid of the vanilla bean.
    11. 11
      Add the bread cubes, toss well, and let soak until absorbed. Fold the mixture occasionally to ensure even soaking.
    12. 12
      In a small saucepan, bring the orange juice to a simmer. Add the cranberries and simmer until plumped and softened, about 5 minutes.
    13. 13
      Drain cranberries and set aside.
    14. 14
      Divide the cranberries into 6 ramekins, custard cups or dessert cups, or just on the bottom of a deep baking dish, reserving enough cranberries to sprinkle on top of pudding.
    15. 15
      Next add the soaked bread and then any remaining custard in the bowl over the bread.
    16. 16
      Sprinkle with remaining cranberries.
    17. 17
      Arrange the 6 little puddings or the one large one in a hot water bath.
    18. 18
      Bake until just set and golden brown on top, about 30 minutes for the little puddings, and 40-45 for the large one.
    19. 19
      Serve warm or chilled, dusted with powdered sugar!

      I'm with you in my love of both these berries & this kind of pudding, & though I did change a couple of things, your great recipe is definitely a keeper! I used a nutty, whole grain bread & then left off the dusting of powdered sugar! Will be making this one again, for sure! Thanks for sharing it!
