Brown Sugar Bread Pudding with Crème Anglaise

1 cup dried mixed fruit, chopped
1 cup pineapple juice
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
4 large egg whites
1 large egg
1 1/4 cups milk
3/4 cup evaporated milk
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
12 (1-ounce) slices diagonally cut French bread (about 1 inch thick)
Cooking spray
4 teaspoons brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons butter, cut into small pieces
1 3/4 cups Crème Anglaise, chilled

Preheat oven to 350°. Combine the first 3 ingredients in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, and cook until reduced to 1 cup (about 8 minutes). Remove from heat. Combine egg whites and egg in a medium bowl, beating with a whisk until blended. Stir in milks, 1/3 cup brown sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Arrange half of bread slices, slightly overlapping, in the bottom of an 8-inch baking pan coated with cooking spray.

Spoon fruit mixture evenly over bread. Arrange remaining bread over the fruit mixture. Pour egg mixture over bread. Sprinkle top with 4 teaspoons brown sugar and butter. Place pan in a 13 x 9-inch baking pan; add hot water to larger pan to a depth of 1 inch. Bake at 350° for 45 minutes or until a knife inserted in center comes out clean. Remove 8-inch pan from water. Serve warm with Crème Anglaise. Makes 10 servings

Crème Anglaise
1 3/4 cups milk
1 (3-inch) piece vanilla bean, split lengthwise
1/3 cup sugar
4 large egg yolks

Pour milk into a medium saucepan. Scrape seeds from vanilla bean; add seeds and bean to milk. Cook over medium heat 6 minutes (do not boil); discard bean. Remove from heat.

Combine sugar and yolks in a bowl, stirring with a whisk until blended. Gradually add milk mixture to bowl, stirring constantly with a whisk. Return mixture to pan. Cook over medium heat 6 minutes or until mixture thinly coats the back of a spoon, stirring constantly with a whisk. Immediately pour mixture into a bowl. Cover and chill (mixture will thicken as it cools).
