Cottage Pudding with Custard Sauce

Doreen Fish


This is my mom's recipe and it was and still is one of my favorites.
I remember walking home from school for lunch in the Winter and smelling this pudding when I walked in the mom always served this warm out of the oven with the warm custard is a basic
recipe but oh so many memories.
Maybe that's why I like it so much!!

This is my pics as I just made it !!
