No Lemon Sauce on the Bread Pudding, Please!

For years I thought that delicious bread pudding had to have lemon sauce. But I know now that caramel sauce or Nutella chocolate sauce tastes even better to me. Leave the lemon to lemon icebox pie! My hub will be happy to read that, since he likes bread pudding, too.

Bread Pudding (Memaw's)

6 slices white or brown bread
2 eggs, well beaten
2/3 cup sugar
2 cups milk
1/2 cup raisins
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/3 cup butter

Break bread into pieces in a large bowl.
Pour milk over bread to soften.
Add eggs, sugar, raisins, and vanilla and blend well.
Melt the butter in a two quart baking dish.
Pour half of melted butter into pudding mix. Mix well.
Pour pudding mix into baking pan.
Bake at 350 degrees F for about 1 hour or until pudding has risen and is golden brown all over.
Serve warm with lemon sauce!!!!

Lemon Sauce (Memaw's)
(This is a delicious sauce, by the way. I just prefer something else on my bread pudding.)

Juice of one lemon
Grated rind of one lemon
2/3 cup sugar
2/3 cup water
1 egg yolk, beaten
1 tablespoon butter
Dash of salt
3 tablespoons flour

In a saucepan, combine sugar, flour, salt, and water. Bring to boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Cook until it begins to thicken.
Gradually stir in beaten egg yolk.
Add butter. Continue stirring.
Remove from heat.
Add lemon juice and rind.
Serve over pudding.
