Lemon Pudding Cake

My mom never made this cake, but many grandmothers and mothers before her did.  I was intrigued by this cake because, well, I had all of the ingredients in my kitchen.  🙂  This was much easier to put together than I imagined and has a lovely flavor and scent of lemon.  There are many recipes out there, but here is the way I put mine together.
