Dessert & Baked Goods » Pouding Chomeur
The name of this dish literally means "pudding of the unemployed" or "poor man's pudding." It's a dessert of Quebec origin that was created by female factory workers in 1929 during the Depression. It was made with flour, water, brown sugar and other inexpensive ingredients common during the era. In this version, a creamy maple syrup sauce brings it deliciously into the 21st century.

I have been looking for a great "caramel pudding cake" recipe (as I called it as a child, growing up in N.S.) for quite a while now. It's hard to believe that such simple ingredients can result in such a wonderful dish. I can't wait to try your recipe. By the way - you're a great teacher. Janice M (Ohio, USA)
