Cottage Pudding with Brandy Caramel Sauce

[Photograph: Alexandra Penfold]

Cottage pudding is neither a cottage nor a pudding. It is however, a simple cake topped with sauce. Lovely boozy sauce.

The cottage pudding and brandied caramel sauce are adapted from recipes that appeared in the 1918 edition of the Boston Cooking School Cookbook. This caramel sauce is light and foamy rather than thick and sticky. If brandy sauce isn't your bag, feel free to top this cake with your favorite frosting or chocolate sauce.
