      Ohboy, oh boy, is this ever goooood! To chop my dates, I mixed them with the sugar and chopped them in my food processor. Oh, and I baked it in a loaf pan, as I wanted better portion control. This is a bread pudding that I will have often. And the lemon sauce is divine, if a little sweet! Thnx for sharing your recipe, pinky. This was made as my final recipe adoptions from you. Made for PAC Spring 2010. You've been adopted!
