I wish I had a good story to go with this bread pudding. I dont. I knew I had tasted only a few Bread Puddings which I dearly loved. I set out to find the yummy one with Cinnamon, raisins and Lemon Sauce... Wah-lah!!

What can I say? I have a sweet tooth and know a good dessert when I taste it. I have had this recipe since '84 and every so often, family requests it when they come for visits. They have that same sweet tooth too, I guess!

This is a great lunch time dessert.
