Bread Pudding with Mom's Lemon Sauce

Of all the comfort foods, as a dessert, Bread Pudding is one of our family favorites.  I had so many butter rolls left over from Christmas that it seemed, just the right way to use them up.  Nothing is finer than a square of warm Bread Pudding with Mom's Lemon Sauce.
 This is one of the many recipes for bread pudding that I have used, however, I usually just 'wing it' and don't use a recipe at all.
I'll throw this one down for you, should you want to use it.  It came out of my 'Grandma's Great Desserts' recipe book, and it's a good one, sure to please.  It will send drifts of cinnamon and raisins baking all throughout your home, better than any scented candle.
The only thing I changed about this recipe was the sauce and the type of bread used.   
Mom's Lemon Sauce

1 2/3 cups water
3-4 Tblsp. Lemon Juice, preferably fresh or
2 tsp. (lemon extract) I used both)
2 Tblsp. cornstarch 
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 tsp. salt

For sauce, combine sugar, cornstarch and salt in a saucepan.  Stir in the water, cook over medium heat for about 3 minutes once it begins to bubble.  Remove from the heat.  Add the butter and lemon juice or extract.
Best served warm over warm bread pudding.

Mom liked her lemon sauce to have that golden glow so she also whisked in 1 egg yolk at the end, first tempering it with a couple Tblsp. of the hot liquid so as Not to scramble the egg.
It was always beautiful and so delicious.

Find one of your Comfort Food Recipes and go for it.
It will make your day.
