Is anyone still looking for an easy Easter dessert?

Then I have one for you!! :)

My life has gotten just crazy busy and I've decided to do this very simple yet fabulous dessert for Sunday. I've made it many times and it's a winner. It does cheat by using premade pound cake, but that's fabulous when time is of the essence. I have no recollection where I got it from but here goes:

Lemon Pound Cake Bread Pudding

2 butter pound cakes (thawed, if using frozen ones)
8 lemons
6 eggs
1C sugar
3C milk

Butter a 13x9 pan. Cut pound cake into cubes (not bite size...large pieces like you'd do for bread pudding) and place in buttered pan. Squeeze juice from lemons over cake. Whisk eggs and sugar in bowl until combined. Whisk in milk. (I'll sometimes add some lemon zest to this, too.) Pour over pound cake; let soak for an hour.

Heat oven to 350. Cover pan with foil and bake 45-60 minutes. Sometimes I'll uncover the pan for the last 10 minutes or so to crisp up the top.

This is great with a raspberry or strawberry coulis and fresh berries.
