    Arrange bottom halves of croissants in two rows, alternately overlapping them slightly, in a 9x13-in baking dish. Scatter half of brown sugar mixture overtop. Ladle half of custard mixture over croissants. Lay remaining croissants, top side up, in two rows, alternately overlapping them slightly. Pan will be extremely full. Scatter remaining brown sugar mixture overtop. Pour in remaining custard mixture. Press on tops to make sure croissants are covered in custard. Let stand 5 minutes.

    Place dish in a larger baking pan in centre of oven. Pour hot tap water into larger pan, halfway up the sides of baking dish. Cover with foil and bake for 25 minutes.

Dust with icing sugar before serving.
