To begin, gather the following ingredients:

- ½ pound (225g) butter
- ½ pound (225g) white sugar
- 5 eggs
- ½ pound (225g) flour
- ¼ pound (113g) currants
- 2 ounces (56g) candied orange and lemon peel, thinly sliced
- A few drops of lemon essence

Now, let's get started with the recipe:

1. Preheat your oven to a moderately quick temperature.

2. In a large bowl, beat the butter and sugar together until the mixture is smooth and creamy. This may take a few minutes of vigorous beating.

3. In a separate bowl, lightly beat the eggs and then add them to the butter and sugar mixture. Mix well until fully incorporated.

4. Gradually add the flour to the mixture, stirring gently until all the flour is combined. Taking care not to overmix.

5. Add the currants, candied orange and lemon peel, and a few drops of lemon essence to the mixture. Fold them in gently, ensuring they are evenly distributed.

6. Grease a pudding tin with butter to prevent sticking, then pour the mixture into the tin.

7. Place the tin in the preheated oven and bake for approximately 1 hour or until a skewer inserted into the center comes out clean.

8. Once the pudding is baked, remove it from the oven and allow it to cool slightly before serving.
