"THIS IS my favorite part of my favorite meal! The 'pudding' really bakes up as a cake, but the delicious lemon sauce crowning each piece has a pudding-like consistency. This dessert is so good I can't resist making it several times during blueberry season...but my family has never complained about having it too often."
