Cottage Pudding Recipe Card Front
Front of the recipe card for Cottage Pudding.
Cottage Pudding is a traditional American dessert consisting of a plain, dense cake served with a sweet glaze or custard. The glaze is generally cornstarch based and flavored with sugar, vanilla, chocolate, butterscotch, or one of a variety of fruit flavors such as lemon or strawberry.
One typical recipe is from Recipes Tried and True, a collection of recipes compiled in 1894 by the Ladies’ Aid Society of the First Presbyterian Church in Marion, Ohio.
Cottage Pudding can be baked over a fruit base, with a resulting dessert similar to a fruit cobbler, as in the recipe for Apple Pan Dowdy in The Fannie Farmer Cookbook.
