Milk Street Recipe

Puddings Chômeur

1 hour 15 minutes active

This gooey Québecois dessert is said to have been created during the Great Depression, when many people were au chômage, or unemployed. The individual “puddings” have the texture of a cake-like biscuit, with crusty edges moistened by maple and cream. The vanilla ice cream may seem unnecessary, but its cold creaminess is the perfect foil for the rich, warm puddings. You'll need four 6-ounce ramekins for this recipe. If you like, it can be doubled to serve eight.
