    Barefoot Beachcomber's Note:

    Adopted recipe! A traditional French-Canadian recipe that is very common in Quebec. A syrupy "pudding" with a cakey topping. Very sweet.

      This is the exact recipe my Mum made for dessert many times when we were all young!! Made it for my husband, who loves sweets and he loved it too!! In the fall, Mum used to put some apples in the bottom of the baking dish, also yummy!!!! Pleasant memories with this one.. Thanks.....

      Great recipe! I added apple to the bottom of the pan which was fabby. Next time I will reduce the amount of sauce, only a cup of water and a cup of sugar - there was soooo much sauce it was crazy. This recipe probably serves 4-6 adults as a big pudding with nothing else. With ice cream or lots of fruit, 8 easily. Thanks for posting, will make again!

      A very interesting recipe that I just had to try out. My two daughters loved this one, but I must say that it is too sweet for me. Thank you for posting. We will make this again.
