From "The Fallen Idol" by Green. On the nursery table he found his supper laid out:a glass of milk and a piece of bread and butter, a sweet biscuit, and a little cold Queen's pudding without the meringue. My question is what "a little " means here. 1) a little pudding 2) "a little cold"pudding 3) both 1) and 2) Well, I hear that "pudding" is countable in British English whereas uncountable in American English. Is it true? Anyway could you give me a tip? Thank you.
