Shoo Fly Cake (Bear’s new Favorite Cake)
You Guys are gonna love this one, because I sure do!!
Mrs Bear found it on the Internet, & we decided to give it a try.
It ends up tasting just like Shoo Fly Pie, without the Crust & the Wet Bottom.
So if you never had Shoo Fly Pie, this would be a good way to find out what it tastes like.
This is one of the Great Things about Being Pennsylvania Dutch!
4 Cups of Flour
2 Cups of Brown Sugar
2/3 Cup of Shortening (I had 3 Cups, but that was my mistake in translation)
Mix this into Crumbs & save 1 Cup.
1 Cup of Molasses
1 TBS of Baking Soda
2 Cups of Boiling Water
Mix this first, and then mix it with Mix #1 (Above)
Pour Mix into 9” X 11” Greased & Floured Pan.
Put the 1 cup of leftover crumbs that were save from Mix #1 on top of the whole thing.
Bake @ 350° for 45 Min. To 1 Hour (Toothpick test).
Everybody please note my change from 3 cups of Shortening to 2/3 Cup.
Mix #1---Flour, Brown Sugar & Shortening:
Mix #2---Molasses, Baking Soda & Boiling Water----Mix Well:
Then Mix #1 & Mix #2 (minus the one cup saved) together:
Mix #1 and Mix #2 mixed together:
Poured into 9" X 11" Greased & Floured Pan:
Put the 1 cup of leftover crumbs that were save from Mix #1 on top of the whole thing. Ready for Oven:
Bake @ 350° for 45 Min. To 1 Hour (Toothpick test):
