What  sort of dish is charlotte, presented by Calpurnia to the ladies Chapter 24 of To Kill a Mockingbird?

Chapter 24 begins with Calpurnia bringing in a tray of charlotte to the ladies.  I have searched recipe sites and Google with no luck.  What is charlotte?  A mom made a wonderful Lane cake and brought it in, so I want to find a recipe.
