|Shoo Fly Cake|
I found this recipe so many years ago, and had featured it here when I first began blogging. This is one of those simple desserts that can be eaten several times a year, just like gingerbread, and you won't grow tired of it. With the end of March being so busy at work (I clocked 112 hours at payroll close) I decided to go back and remake some of the earlier offerings and take pictures this time around.
Shoo Fly Cake
adapted from a recipe found in a magazine many years ago, author unknown, but thanked many times.
350 degree oven
21/2 c flour
3/4 c sugar
1 t soda
Whisk together in a large bowl.
Cut in butter until mixture looks like cornmeal. Reserve 1/3 c of this mixture and set aside.
1/2 c molasses
Stir together and add to the crumb mixture in the large bowl, stirring just to blend. Pour into a prepared 9 inch round baking pan.
Add 2 T brown sugar to the reserved crumb mixture, mix well. Sprinkle evenly over the top of the cake batter.
Serves 6-8 with whipped cream and fruit or just a small scoop of vanilla ice cream.
