“Amish cooking is amazingly simple and incredibly delicious. This 'funny' pie flips its chocolate and cake layers during the baking process. The result will make you flip! Leftovers can be kept for up to one week in the refrigerator.” - by Gera Krahe McGuire
Original recipe yields 2 cakes
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
- Beat together 1 cup sugar, cocoa powder, hot water, and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract with an electric mixer on medium speed until the sugar dissolves, about 3 minutes. Pour this batter into the pie shells.
- Sift together the flour and baking powder; set aside. Cream together 1 cup sugar with the butter. Beat in the vanilla, then the eggs, one at a time. Slowly beat in half of the milk, then half of the flour until moistened. Mix in the remaining milk then flour. Carefully spoon this batter on top of the chocolate batter, making sure that the entire top of the cake is covered with no chocolate visible.
- Bake in preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cakes comes out clean, about 30 minutes. Remove from the oven, and allow to cool for at least 1 hour before serving.

"Tasty enough....of the two funny cake recipes on here...you're both doing it wrong. :D Take it from a funny cake expert. You put the batter in the pan FIRST, then you have to pour the chocolate ON T..." See moreOP of the cake part."
"We love this pie/cake! It's so easy my 11 year old makes it for us. You just have to be careful putting the chocolate layer on. That's the trick to getting it to set up right. But it is tasty, and we ..." See morelove that we usually have all the ingredients without having to go to the store. YUMMMMY"
"This was ok. I put the sauce on the top of the cake before baking and then it ended up at the bottom, on top of the crust but under the cooked cake. I'm thinking that is how it is supposed to be done ..." See moreas it does flip if you do it that way. Anyway, I didn't mind it but no one else in my family seemed to enjoy it."
