I used this recipe: http://theppk.com/recipes/dbrecipes/index.php?RecipeID=169
which seemed easy enough, but the instructions were sort of vague. what exactly is a large baking dish? when I looked up pictures of chômeur pouding I found this:
so I figured I'd need something with a high wall.
I followed the instructions, and the 'syrup' liquid covered the cake dough, but I figured it would work out.
this came out of the oven:
sank a little, but was definitely done, as a knife came out clean. I noticed that it was a bit heavy, but I was imagining that the 'syrup' had thickened significantly.
I let it cool for a little bit and then inverted it. (as the picture would have you believe!)
then boiling hot sugar-water poured all over everything. it was a flood.
I flipped it back.
it tasted good. kind of like a dense pancake with sauce, but obviously I did this wrong. I suspect I used the wrong kind of vessel to cook with.
leave me some advice while I mop the floor.
