Hi Peace Family! I found my Great grandmother’s recipe for Bread Pudding with Lemon Sauce on top (optional). It’s not only delicious but the recipe is over 70 years old. I always think the original recipes are the best…the treasures and jewels in every family. I thought I’d share one of my treasures with you! This photo has raisins added and you can add any fruit you like. Many people add apples.
