Okay, this is an unusual recipe. First of all, it's called pudding when, in fact, it's a cake; secondly, it is made with bread crumbs and, lastly, there are no eggs. It's a type of spice cake and the warm lemon sauce really kicks it up a notch. I hadn't made this in many, many years, so I baked it a few nights ago and it really is good.
