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!
