WOW... this was wonderful! I served it over angel food cake with strawberries and blueberries. My husband also had some over vanilla ice cream and said it was great. I made it ahead of time and just reheated it... it was awesome!

Absolutely fabulous! This delicate Lemon Sauce was exactly what I was seeking to top my bread pudding. It was a lovely balance of sweetness and tartness. It makes about 2 cups though; so if you only need a small amount, I advise halving all the ingredients.
