Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325°F with rack in middle.
  2. Put bread in a 3-quart flameproof shallow baking dish (not glass).
  3. Whisk zest, lemon juice, and 4 cups cream (chill remaining cup cream) in a separate bowl, then pour over bread.
  4. Press down with a spatula to help bread soak up some of the custard.
  5. Whisk together whole eggs, yolks, and sugar in a large bowl until pale and thick, about 1 minute.
  6. Lightly sprinkle bread with sugar and bake in a water bath until custard is barely set and edges of bread are golden, 40 to 45 minutes.
  7. Turn on broiler and broil bread pudding 4 to 5 inches from heat until golden-brown in spots, 2 to 3 minutes.
  8. Cool to warm, about 30 minutes (pudding will continue to set).
  9. Just before serving, beat remaining cup cream with syrup using an electric mixer or a whisk until it just holds soft peaks.
  10. Serve pudding, warm or chilled, with cream.
