Ingredients for the syrup

  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon salted butter
  • 2/3 cup Sortilège Original liquor

Ingredients for the dough

  • 1 1/3 cup all purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3 teaspoons Magic Baking Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 1 egg, slightly whisked
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 splash Sortilège Original liquor


  • Preheat the oven at 350°F.
  • In a glass bowl, heat the syrup ingredients in the microwave 4 minutes at max temperature. Stir well and drop the syrup in a square Pyrex about 9×9 in size.
  • In a bowl, mix the flour, sugar, salt and baking powder together. Add the butter and break it apart into small peas using a knife or your fingers.
  • Create a small hole in the middle of the ingredients and add the milk, the egg and the splash of Sortilège liquor.
  • Mix together just enough to wet the dry ingredients. Drop the dough on top of the syrup, spoon by spoon, until all the syrup is covered.
  • Put in the middle of the oven and bake for about 45 to 50 minutes or until you poke it with a tooth pick and it comes out dry. Let cool down for about 5 minutes and eat like there is no tomorrow!

Our wine stewards suggest

+- 15$ Sortilège

Hard to be wrong here, and in addition, you already have it at home. It can also be legendary in coffee!

+- 30$ Sortilège Prestige

Have you tried it's big brother? It would be sacred to use it in the recipe... But for the pairing it's perfect. Using a 7 years old canadian whisky brings a woody but nuanced character.

Équinoxe de printemps, Dieu du Ciel

With rich notes of caramel, maple and malt, this scotch ale will be harmonized with the aromas of Sortilège and caramel of the pudding. This warm beer will be perfect for a cold night next to a warm fire… or listening to folk music!
