Old Fashioned ShooFly Cake

Old Fashioned ShooFly Cake created by luvmybge

This cake smells sooo good. The ginger and spices really give it a nice kick. I'm not a fan of ShooFly pie.. but this cake is a keeper.

ingredients

directions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Grease and flour a 9-by-13-inch baking pan.
  • Mix the flour, spices, salt and sugars, then cut in the shortening and butter with a pastry blender or similar tool until the mixture is the consistency of fine crumbs.
  • Set aside 1 cup of the mixture.
  • In another bowl, pour the boiling water over the molasses and stir until dissolved.
  • Stir in the baking soda.
  • When the bubbling subsides, add to the dry ingredients and stir until smoothly blended.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared pan.
  • Give the pan a good thunk to settle contents, and drag a knife a few times through the center of the batter from the outside to the middle to help the cake rise evenly.
  • Sprinkle with reserved cup of crumbs.
  • Bake for about 50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean.
