Funny Cake

"The funny thing is; the topping you mix and pour as the topping, actually ends up at the bottom of the pie as a crust. A recipe from my Nana. She stresses you have to use a "deep dish pie plate" as well as bake on the bottom rack of the stove."

  1. This is a nice cake, simple and very quick .. Made it exactly as stated, and had it with dinner .. Make sure the chocolate is completely melted, otherwise you will end up with some of it on top of the cake with the rest on the bottom! although it did look nice .. thank you


Welcome! I joined this website in 2001, as a new wife and Mom of a 1 y/o and I was 28 yrs old and did not know about cooking. I found this website cause I searched the web and wanted to find a good recipe for carrots! I found that recipe and so much more here over the years. I learned so much from this website and opened up my eyes to other recipes. I now am 46 y/o. I am now divorced and my then 1 y/o son is now a Marine. I have a wonderful man in my life that loves and appreciates my cooking and I thank this site for all of its help. I still come here for recipes. I hope you like my recipes and your family enjoys them also....there is many here and I love to pass them on.
