Matzos Shalet

The shalet, or schaleth, is a traditional sweet pudding eaten by Ashkenazic Jews.
The word is actually a corruption of cholent, and refers to when the pudding was cooked like the kugel with the Sabbath stew.
When the famous 19th-century French chef Antonin Careme invented the charlotte pudding, confusion deepened. Some Jewish cookbooks call this dessert a charlotte, though it has little in common with that creation of haute cuisine.
