  • Summary

    Cottage Pudding is not pudding at all, but a simple yellow cake, baked in a square pan, and served with sauce, be it vanilla, chocolate, butterscotch, lemon, nutmeg, or even rhubarb. I consider it the perfect snack cake. I started with the recipe from Davis Cook Book: The Pure Food Kind, (no date) and I added an egg yolk and a tad more butter and sugar, and I substituted buttermilk for the milk to make it more moist, flavorful, and tender. For the sauce, I used heavy cream instead of water for richness and cornstarch instead of flour for efficiency (it thickens more quickly than flour).

    Ingredients

    • 2 1/4 cups cake flour (sifted)
    • 1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
    • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1 teaspoon table salt
    • 1 cup unsalted butter (room temperature)
    • 1 3/4 cups granulated sugar
    • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
    • 2 eggs
    • 1 egg yolk
    • 1 cup buttermilk
    • 1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar (sifted)
    • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
    • 1 cup heavy cream
    • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
    • 1/8 teaspoon table salt
    • whipped cream (optional, to taste)
