My grandmother made a cottage pudding with peaches in the bottom of the cake served with vanilla sauce. Except for the peaches, this sounds like her recipe…she made it only two or three times a year so we always looked forward to the amazing aroma of it baking and the delicious favors. Thank you for sharing.

Cottage Pudding is in the Betty Crocker recipe book from the 40’s. Here are the
1 3/4 c. sifted flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 t. salt

Cream together:
1/4 cup soft butter
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg
3/4 cup milk
1 t. vanilla

Bake in greased 9 x 9 pan at 350 degrees
for 20 min.
Can be frosted or with strawberries and whipped cream.
I poach fresh sliced pears in melted butter and brown sugar. While still warm, place on top of pieces of cottage pudding (with fresh grind of nutmeg) and
serve with unsweetened whipped cream.

I was very excited to come across this recipe. My husband and his brother’s Mom used to make this for them. I believe it came after World War2. It was a real job to stop them from eating the whole cake and sauce. I guess I’ll have to see if I can make it like Mom
Thank you,
