You will also need a 2 pint (1.2 litre) enamel baking dish (one of the oblong kind), well buttered.
This recipe is taken from Delia Smith’s Complete Cookery Course and Delia Smith’s Complete Illustrated Cookery Course.
Butter the bread and cut each slice of buttered bread in half – leaving the crusts on.
Now arrange one layer of buttered bread over the base of the baking dish, sprinkle the candied peel and half the currants over, then cover with another layer of the bread slices and the remainder of the currants.
Next, in a glass measuring jug, measure out the milk and add the double cream.
Stir in the caster sugar and lemon zest, then whisk the eggs, first on their own in a small basin and then into the milk mixture.
Pour the whole lot over the bread, sprinkle over some freshly grated nutmeg, and bake in the oven for 30-40 minutes.

For any special occasion, give this traditional classic pud a luxurious twist with the addition of whisky-soaked raisins.
In a way I'm very glad that the delectable Italian raisin and fruit bread, called Panettone, only comes in to the house at Christmas. I absolutely love it and keep taking sneaky slices.
Chocolate lovers will be thrilled at this twist on an English favourite...it's even better if you keep it for a day or so before eating, served with chilled cream.
