Lemon Pudding Cake

Recipe by Mirj2338

I first had this at my friend Elaine's house. It's become a big favorite with my family. It's got a great lemon taste.

Oh my, this was a great dessert! It was very easy to get together, and was done to perfection after 40 minutes in the oven. I used freshly-squeezed lemon juice and lowfat (1%) milk; it might have been richer with fullfat milk but I think using lowfat worked well. I skipped the final sprinkle of icing sugar and served squares of this, still warm, with whipped cream -- yum, yum, yum! Thanks for another permanent addition to my dessert file, Mirj!
