Cottage Pudding with Vanilla Sauce

If you a regular reader of my blog, you might have noticed that am posting some delicious American desserts as i picked 'Do either US states sweets or Indian states sweets' as theme for this week's blogging marathon. After some dangerously addictive Carnival funnel cake, am posting an another lipsmacking traditional American dessert. If you are looking for a different pudding, then you have to give a try to this fantastic American pudding. This pudding calls for a plain, dense cake served with a sauce or a sweet glaze.  Usually the glaze is prepared with cornstarch and flavored with sugar, vanilla,chocolate or else with a variety of fruit flavors like strawberry, lemon etc.

Cottage pudding with Vanilla sauce

When i picked Cottage pudding from Wikipedia page under American desserts, i went on googling for the recipe which pulled me to give a try to this fantastic dessert. Actually for me pudding goes for rich, dairy baseed desserts but this cottage pudding is completely different. A cake batter is prepared with easy ingredients, once baked in a square pan, they are sliced a small squares. Then this piece of pudding is topped with vanilla sauce to serve as a dessert. Quite a different one rite. Cottage pudding have its origin in North America as well. And this recipe is published during 1863 or 1864 in Godey's lady's book, a popular 19th century women's magazine. Later many versions of this pudding do exists, however i went with a simple vanilla sauce to serve along with this cottage pudding.
