packed brown sugar
I live in Montréal and married a French Canadian so I can vouch for the fact that this is not a recipe for pouding (not a typo) chomeur. The word "dumpling" gives it away because pouding chomeur is a cake. My mother-in-law immediately identified this recipe as "Grandpère dans le sirop".
Not good. Maybe because of the butter added to the syrup. Will not make again
Great recipe. I wanted to make something other than a usual dessert and this was perfect. Incredibly easy to make and great tasting. Next time, I will cut the baking powder in half though. I could taste the baking powder too much. Other than that, my husband and I loved this dessert.
Tonight I reheated the leftovers in the microwave for 1 1/2 minutes and had it for dessert with vanilla ice cream on the side. I also sprinkled a little sugar over the Pudding Chomeur. My husband and I thought it was delicous. It's been about three days since I initially made this recipe and the leftover Pudding Chomeur was still great reheated! I will definetly make this again.
My grandmother use to make this when I was a kid. This recipe brough back those childhood memories. You can also serve this with some vanilla ice cream on top.
We have updated the title of this recipe to reflect the true recipe. We apologize to the Canadians who were expecting cake.
Lovely. I cut the sugar with a little dark rum. I know that rum takes away from the cultural purity of the whole thing, but it was really good. Especially with a little milk poured over in the end.
Very easy, very rich, and I halved the recipe and still came out with more than enough for 4 people. This is kind of like a dumpling version of creme brule.
delicious. never heard of it before, but wanted something quick to fulfill my sweet tooth. caramel goodness.
