This homey, comforting dessert is a favorite of Loretta Dressel of Nathrop, Colorado. The texture is neither soggy nor dry, and the lemony sauce drizzled on top is delightful. —Loreta Dressel, Nathrop, Colorado

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 21, 2013

This was terrific. Made it for church social hour and rec'd very good reviews. I used leftover hot dog buns (yes, really) from a picnic the day before, but you could use almost any kind of white bread. The sauce is very lemony, so go easy on that when serving.
