To begin with, preheat the oven to 350°F. Toast the brioche on a large rimmed baking sheet for about 15 minutes until it becomes slightly brown and dry, stir only once or twice.

While the brioche gets ready, melt the butter and reserve 3 tablespoons of it into a small bowl and put away. Add the apples and 1/4 cup of the sugar to the butter and cook over medium heat, stir from time to time for 15 minutes. The apples should get soft and golden. Add cinnamon and stir again. Remove it from the heat and add the Calvados. Put the pan again over heat and cook until it turns into syrup, for about a minute.

Beat eggs, milk and the remaining 3/4 cup of sugar in a large bowl. Add the vanilla seeds (the bean will be for another use), brioche and apples and toss until completely coated. Leave for 5 minutes for brioche to absorb the custard.

Grease the 8-by-11-inch baking dish with one tablespoon of melted butter, we left reserved before. Pour the bread pudding and sprinkle it with the 2 tablespoons of melted butter. Bake it about 50 minutes until the top gets golden. Cool the pudding and serve with whipped cream.
