Fruit and Stale Bread Custard

If you have any stale bread, make a quick and easy dessert by buttering the bread and cutting into cubes. Layer them into a casserole dish with a handful of dried fruit (currants, white grapes or whatever you have to hand). Cover with 1 1/2 pints fresh custard, stir to mix and bake in moderate oven for around 30-40 minutes. Sounds gross but tastes great.

I would also love the recipe for the custard. I found some recipes online, but when you say 'fresh' custard, does that mean freshly mixed that hasn't been baked yet, or 'fresh' baked custard? Thanks for sharing.
