Poor Man’s Pudding


Poor Man’s Pudding


  • 2 cups maple syrup
  • 2 cups heavy cream

Ingredients for the Batter:

  • ¾ cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • ¾ cup white sugar
  • ¼ tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs, at room temperature
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • ½ tsp. fine salt
  • 1¾ cups all-purpose flour


  1. Preheat oven to 425 F. Butter a deep baking dish and place it on a sheet pan.
  2. Bring maple syrup and heavy cream to a boil in a deep saucepan over medium-high heat. Turn off heat once mixture starts to bubble. Stir and set aside.
  3. Beat butter and sugar together in a bowl using a spatula or electric mixer until creamy and well combined. Whisk in vanilla extract and one egg until incorporated. Mix in the other egg.
  4. Sprinkle in baking powder, salt and flour. Mix with a spatula until the batter is just combined.
  5. Transfer batter to the prepared dish and pour the maple cream sauce on top, stopping between 1/2 to 1 inch from the top of the dish. Reserve any extra sauce.
  6. Bake in the center of preheated oven until pudding is golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out mostly clean, about 30 minutes.
  7. Let cool for 10 minutes; serve pudding with any extra maple cream sauce.
