“A classic French-Canadian sweet. "Chômeur" means un-employed; therefore, the dish bears its name because it is inexpensive. Along with rice pudding and jello, this is one of most commonly offered desserts in diners. WARNING: May cause sugar overdose. Contrary to the usual recipe, this one uses milk for a more cake-like texture. The original recipe also doesn't call for an egg, but my mother always made it with the egg.”
