Shoo Fly Cake9 Reviews
“A variation on the old Pennsylvania Dutch favorite, Shoo Fly Pie. Not as sweet or gooey as Shoo Fly Pie, this cake is much better the day after you bake it. Works really well as cupcakes. I made mini cupcakes for Christmas, always a hit.” - by Amy Moore
Original recipe yields 9 x 13 inch sheet cake
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease one 9 x 13 inch pan.
- Dissolve soda in boiling water. Set aside.
- Mix together flour, brown sugar, salt, and vegetable oil to form a crumb-like mixture. Reserve 1 cup of the crumbs. Mix the remaining crumbs with the water and soda mixture. Pour batter into the prepared pan. Sprinkle the reserved crumbs on top.

"When the correct ingredients are used this recipe is 5 stars and very easy. This is very similar to my family recipe, except (as others have noticed) it's missing the most important ingredient MOLASS..." See moreES. Split the water into two containers, disolve the baking soda in 1/4 cup and disolve 1cup molasses in the other. Mix as per recipe discription. Batter is very liquidy, but cake is not."
"I make this cake from my mother-in-laws recipe. She is PA Dutch. You really need molasses - use instead of oil. Will taste more like shoo-fly pie. I rated this recipe using molasses not oil...." See more"
