Do you have a lot of cooked oatmeal left over after breakfast? Follow your favorite recipe for bread pudding, but use the oatmeal instead of bread. Serve it warm from the oven with sweet cream. —Neola Lee, Alexandria, Nebraska
THE BEST THINGS about this dessert are it's easy to make and uses ingredients I usually have.
Besides making it often for my husband and me, I have made it several times for unexpected company. It satisfies a sweet tooth without being too rich.

This recipe comes from my grandmother who raised me. Besides looking after my siblings and me, she worked the farm and ran another business on the side. How she did all that, I'll never know! She's a tremendous cook and the goodies from "Edith's Kitchen" are always welcomed and eagerly devoured - this bread pudding is one of the best!
Sweet raisins and a smooth hot lemon sauce make this bread pudding extra special. Even today, I get requests for the recipe from people who tasted this traditional dessert years ago. —Mildred Sherrer, Fort Worth, Texas
