Luby's Bread Pudding With Lemon Sauce

“This came from Luby's 50th Anniversary cookbook. This is their note on the recipe: Bread pudding originally was created as a “waste not, want not” use for dry leftover brad. Serve this homey, family-pleasing pudding warm, at room temperature, or cold, as you prefer. However you serve it, it’s “comfort food” at its very best.”
