PUDDING au CHOMEUR
(Translated in English: Unemployment Pudding)
A traditional Quebec dessert
Source: Pauline Bolduc - Louise's Mom
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup hot water
1 to 2 Tbsp butter
Boil for 2 minutes on top of stove.
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup white sugar
1 cup flour
1 TBLSP baking powder
1 Tsp. vanilla.
Mix dough and put in the bottom of a glass bread dish or a very small square dish - 8" X 8" should work. Add sauce on the top. Cook in a 350 degree oven for 1/2 an hour or so. The "cake" part will float to the top and the sauce will gather at the bottom. Best eaten hot but not necessarily.
When we get a hankering for something "sweet", I make this cake. It's a small cake and once its gone, its gone!
VARIATIONS: Sauce: Replace water quantities with: 1/4 cup rum and 1/4 cup water.
Or, in your dough, add a tsp of Rum or Maple
