In Reply to: CAKE IN A PUDDING? posted by Ed Kiser on January 27, 2018 at 06:56:36:

In this context I think Dorothea means that, for their "pudding course" (something sweet, eaten as the last course of a meal), they can eat the cake.

A more typical/traditional/old-fashioned "pudding course" would be something like "spotted dick", "treacle pudding", "rice pudding", "Christmas pudding" which are often steamed, but it could also be used to mean a trifle, ice cream etc.

The word "pudding" can also be used for savoury food, like "Yorkshire pudding" or "steak and kidney pudding", but in this context Dorothea means "pudding course".
