A classic French-Canadian sweet. "Chômeur" means un-employed; therefore, the dish bears its name because it is inexpensive. Along with rice pudding and jello, this is one of most commonly offered desserts in diners. WARNING: May cause sugar overdose. Contrary to the usual recipe, this one uses milk for a more cake-like texture. The original recipe also doesn't call for an egg, but my mother always made it with the egg.
- Preheat oven to 325F.
- Mix flour and baking powder, set aside.
- In a bowl, beat eggs, sugar, and margarine.
- Incorporate flour, alternating with milk.
- Without spreading it, pour preperation into a greased 13"x9" pan.
- Mix all the ingredients for the sauce in a saucepan.
- Boil for 2 minutes.
- Pour over top of the dough.
- Bake 45 minutes.
Really yummy! An easy sweet dessert the whole family enjoyed. Made a half-recipe using a 9-inch square baking dish. Omitted the egg just cause I didn't feel like halving an egg. Like a regular pudding cake except with much more sauce. Thanks for sharing the recipe! Made for PAC Spring 2009.
