This bread pudding is a little lighter than most and is enhanced by a lovely lemon sauce. I've also served the sauce over slices of angel food cake.

"Needed a quick winter dessert to take to a Sunday dinner. This recipe came out well but the tasted was way too "eggy" and the fresh bread did not provide depth. If you like a very smooth texture and are okay with your dessert tasting more like a brunch food, then this will work. The lemon sauce was lovely and quick. It can go on pound cakes and such as well... I make alter this by using a tougher bread or old bread ends and one less egg."
