Lemon Bread Pudding With Lemon Sauce

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by Petdrwife

This bread pudding is from Taste of Home magazine and has become the recipe I use whenever making bread pudding. I have used all kinds of day old bread in it, even cinnamon bread...yummmmm. The lemon sauce is a great addition to the bread pudding but it is also quite good without.
