  • Soak the raisins in the orange juice, zest and boiling water for ½ hour and strain.
  • Butter a baking dish and cut the buttered bread slices into triangles and lay them on the bottom of the dish.
  • Sprinkle on half the raisins and follow with the rest of the bread. Finish with a sprinkle of the remaining raisins.
  • In a bowl, mix the milk, cream and sugar together. Add in the lightly beaten eggs and mix again.
  • Gently pour the mixture over bread and raisins and sprinkle the nutmeg over the top.
  • Bake in an oven at 180°C for 30-40 minutes until golden brown.
