Meanwhile, combine the milk and margarine in a saucepan. Heat until

Add the lemon rind. Sprinkle the yeast into the milk mixture when
lukewarm. Let stand for 5 minutes to dissolve.

Add the sugar, nutmeg, 2 cups of the flour and the saffron mixture.
Beat until smooth. Stir in the currants (or dark raisins) and
another 1/2 cup of the flour. Cover with a damp towel and let rise in
a warm place until doubled in size. Then punch down and knead on a
lightly-floured board until smooth.
