Cottage Pudding and Caramel Sauce

Cottage pudding dates at least to the 19th century. This link has a recipe with its origins in a cookbook from 1894.

Adding raisins wouldn’t hurt, and there’s a recipe for a butterscotch sauce in this box that suggests serving over cottage pudding.

From the box of L.S. of Joplin, Missouri.

    I just discovered your site. It’s fabulous and fun, a real trip down memory lane. I’ve got the cottage pudding in the oven right now and can’t wait to try it. My grandma used to make it and I suddenly wanted it. Sadly, I don’t have her recipes, but a google search lead me here. Thank you for posting it!
