3 tbspn caster sugar
16fl oz/480ml milk
16fl oz/480ml double cream
half tsp vanilla extract
6 large croissants
2/3 jar Mrs Darlington's Legendary Lemon Curd
Demerara sugar to sprinkle on the top
Whisk the eggs, caster sugar, milk, cream and vanilla extract in a large bowl. Slice the croissants in half, butter and then smother with Mrs Darlington's Lemcon Curd. Arrange the croissants in an oven proof dish ensuring the top of the croissants are facing up. Pour over the egg mixture and then sprinke over some demerara sugar. Leave to stand for approximately 20 minutes to allow the egg mixture to soak into the croissants.
Bake for approximately 30 minutes at 175 degrees or until the egg mixture is set.
Serve with cream or warm, fresh custard.
