My 1946 hardback has "for a pudding".
My 1971(?) UK Puffin paperback, with coloured pencil cover drawing, has "for pudding".

I wonder if it's a change made by AR after publication, or that the "a" was dropped accidentally by the printers at some point?

Both variations are acceptable English. I think the original fits the voice of novice-cook-Dorothea better!
