Maple Syrup Pudding

Maple Syrup Pudding


"This is a Quebec recipe. Very simple and easy. You can add nuts if you like. The maple syrup pudding is an 'upgraded' version of poor man's pudding, which uses brown sugar syrup. The maple syrup will sink to the bottom."

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease an 8x8 inch baking pan.
  2. In a medium bowl, beat together sugar, butter, egg, and vanilla extract using an electric mixer until soft and creamy, at least 10 minutes.
  3. Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt; stir into the butter mixture a little at a time, alternating with the maple syrup and milk. Just mix enough to moisten. Pour into the prepared pan.
  4. Bake in a preheated oven for 45 minutes. The maple syrup will sink to the bottom, and the top should be lightly browned. Serve warm.

This may be helpful...Some people seem to not be familiar with a traditional English (I think the Canadians may be using this also) pudding which is more like a gooey bread ie: figgy pudding, plum pudding, black pudding etc. The creamy stuff we call pudding in the U.S. would be referred to as a custard in most places.

First off let me say this is a decent recipe. For a non-steamed pudding it was nice. Simple, relatively quick, easy and inexpensive to make. The 10 minute beating of the initial wet ingredients is, in my opinion, not necessary. 3-5 minutes fo this small amount is acceptable, as long as you have a good smooth blend. Also, if you do not have (real) maple syrup, the average maple flavoured table syrup that the vast majority of us have in the cupboard is fine, and can often be flavoured more strongly than real syrup. As to the complaints I read... I do not feel this is a good forum for complaints. If you had issues making the recipe, tips or tweaks to make it better then by all means, but the out and out complaints and bashing are in poor taste. Especially when wrong. Being an American living in Canada, I have a broader view than some. Try and remember, the net is not confined to the US. Therefore anything you see online has a very good likelihood of being from elsewhere. Pudding is the British verb used to generically describe dessert ("If you don't eat your meat, you can't have any pudding, hoe can you have any pudding if you don't eat your meat?!"). American style pudding did not become common until around the 1930's. "Traditional Pudding" would be a bread or cake like dish, more often than not sweet these days. So, if you are going to complain, please make sure you know what you are speaking of. Thanks for the recipe by the way!

A traditional pudding has a spongy, cake like texture; it is not the pie filling most consider pudding. Other examples are a steamed pudding or a plum pudding or even spoon bread. There is no need to disparage this recipe as two different types of "puddings" are being confused by the cooks. Give it a try on its own merit and broaden your culinary knowledge. Then try a traditional steamed pudding for your holiday meal; brought to the table alight - it's stunning.
