It may not be pretty...

But it sure was good!

Way back when, I had this great Pillsbury cookbook that had this amazing recipe for Lemon Pudding cake.. then I rented from this horrible family who, in between picking up my things when moving here, threw that cookbook amongst many if my other things, away. I didn't think much about that book until the Meyer lemons came around and had me craving for that lemony cakey-pudding-y goodness.

Of course, Zaar came to the rescue (as always)
