"A classic French-Canadian sweet. Along with rice pudding and gelatin, this is one of the most commonly offered desserts in diners. Contrary to the usual recipe, this one uses milk for a more cake-like texture." — Burgz

great version of the original, I've also made it substituting a part of the sugar sauce with maple syrup for a real sprecial treat!
I really enjoyed this recipe. As a Quebecer I must say it was authentic. Simple, tasty, quick and it reminds me of home
AWESOME recipe!! Only downfall is that it doesnt taste nearly as yummy the next day. I changed mine a little. Like any cake recipe, I creamed the butter and sugar first and then added the egg. I then added 2 tsp vanilla extract. I also added 3 tsp ground cinnamon to the flour mixture which gave it great flavor. I decreased the brown sugar to 1 3/4 and still found the sauce a bit sweet. I added extra vanilla to the brown sugar sauce too. I might try adding apples next time. Over all, great recipe but must finish entire thing :)
I am so impressed with how great this dish came out considering the few simple ingredients. I did add an equal amount of maple extract since I read that the traditional version of the recipe actually uses maple syrup! Two thumbs up, this is definitely going in my recipe book!
This recipe was my very first time making a French-Canadian dessert. Very nice, simple dessert. Took the advice of another and added some cinnamon and add'l vanilla to the cake batter and decreased the amount of brown sugar in the syrup to 1 3/4 cups and it was just right. Best served warm with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream. Thanks for this recipe.
Really easy and fast recipe. I used unsalted butter instead of margarine as it is healthier. Comes out really rich, but according to my brother who is the one who was really craving pudding chomeur, it is less rich than the one made with maple syrup he had at a restaurant. The cake part was not quite as good and gewy as the one he had at the restaurant, but still very moist and syrupy on the bottom. His sweet tooth was nicely satisfied so was the sweet tooth of everyone else at the gathering! Great quick recipe, thanks!
Good recipe. I liked the batter, but the sauce was too sugary for me. Although, if I was to make it again I think I would add some cinnamon to the batter.
Délicieux !!!! Serve with vanilla ice cream.
