Yes babe, I think more milk or some lemon juice would do the trick. Is it cooked pudding or instant?

Try adding a little lemon rind to perk it up.

In addition to the extra milk, and lemon zest, I would add some fresh lemon juice also. If memory serves me, the pudding mix doesn't have the "pucker" I'd like for a sauce. Let us know how it turns out Babe!

the sauce was just great, lots of "this is so good" made instant pudding and let it set. then slowly added small amounts of milk til thin as liked. then added juice of half a lemon. i forgot the zest but will certainly do it next time. had nice tang and complimented the pound cake.
