2.  Tear the bread into chunks and place them in the prepared pan.

3.  Mix together the eggs, milk, cream, sugar, and vanilla.  Pour mixture evenly over the bread and refrigerate overnight.

4.  In another bowl, mix together the flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt together.  Add the butter and mix until batter comes together like little pebbles.  Store in a plastic bag in the fridge.
