Preheat the oven 350℉. Butter a square baking dish (about 8 by 8 inches).
In a large bowl, whisk together 3 cups buttermilk, ¾ cup sugar, 5 eggs and 3 egg yolks. Stir in 2 teaspoons vanilla, if you have any on hand. Stir in 2 cups coarsely crumbled cornbread and ½ cup currants. Pour the mixture into the prepared baking dish and cover with foil.
Set the baking dish in a roasting pan or other larger oven-safe pan, and fill with hot water halfway up the sides of the baking dish. Bake for 1 hour, then remove the foil and bake for an additional 10 minutes, or until the pudding is just set. Transfer the pudding to a wire rack and let cool slightly, at least 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, hull and slice the strawberries.
Scoop the warm pudding into bowls, spoon the berries over the top, and serve.
