Mix in the egg and sour cream.
Spread this mixture over the crumb cake base.
Sprinkle with pecans.
Bake for 35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
Make the lemon sauce:
While the cake is baking, make the lemon sauce.
Combine the sugar, cornstarch and salt in a saucepan. Mix well.
Stir in the water and lemon juice. Heat and stir over medium heat until the mixture thickens and comes to a boil. Boil for 1 minute, then remove from the heat.
Stir in the lemon zest, mace and butter. Stir until the butter is melted.
Serve the cake warm with lemon sauce over the top and a dollop of whipped cream.
