“If you crossed sticky toffee pudding with pancakes and maple syrup, you would get Chomeur, a buttery biscuit submerged in a bath of maple syrup and cream.”, a comment from Food 52 Editors. Pudding Chomeur takes no time to prepare: you mix the dough in 10 minutes and refrigerate it, and then the next day, you drop it into ramekins, pour over the syrup and cream and pop it into a very hot–450degrees–oven. As the syrup mixture boils it poaches and glazes the biscuit. This makes it both a great no-stress dinner party dessert and fun baking project to do with your kids. The recipe calls for 6ramekins. The pudding is so rich you might want to make it in 10 to 12 small ramekins, baked for slightly less time, about 20 minutes. The batter should half fill the ramekins, and the syrup should come no closer than 1/4-inch from the rim, or it will boil over.
Pudding Chômeur is a traditional dessert from Québec. It is rich and decadent and a perfect winter treat. With heavy cream on top of it it’s even better!
