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.

We like it.... I'm a regular baker of pouding chomeur and this one gets the cake -- it seems the whipping cream in the sauce (instead of water) makes it less sweet and more rich, both good things!

This recipe is similar to one we have in our family that came down from my husband's grandmother. His grandfather was from Canada, so maybe she got it from her in-laws. The only difference was that they added a cup of raisins. We add dates, and fix it every holiday season

This was very good. My husband enjoyed it a lot. I liked it too- but I am not used to eating brown sugar deserts like this- even after living in Quebec for 5 years!My mother in law adds evaporated milk or cream to the brown sugar mix instead of water- and it is sooo creamy! This would also be good made with a fresh blueberry syrup which is used just as often as brown sugar here. In case anyone wonders: when you add the batter in by the spoon full in a uniform pattern all over the dish- it spreads and makes a cake on top. It looks nice served upside down!
