I found this recipe, however, for Shoofly Cake that is scrumptious! I'm embarrassed to say how long it lasted...or not!
Give it a try...I don't think you'll be disappointed!
*this is especially good when enjoyed warm, right out of the oven...
4 cups flour
2 cups brown sugar
1 cup butter or margarine
1 cup molasses (regular baking molasses...not Black Strap!)
2 tsp baking soda
1. Combine flour, brown sugar and butter until crumbly. Reserve 1 ½ cups crumbs for topping.
2. Combine boiling water, molasses and baking soda. Stir into remaining crumbs and mix well. Pour into floured baking pan. Sprinkle with 1 ½ cups reserved crumbs.
3. Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
