Shoofly Coffee Cake

"From a 1950s cookbook whose cover is long-lost, Shoofly Pie in cake form. One of my husband's favorites, it's not around long enough for me to have to shoo flies away!"

  1. Lovely molasses flavor. I took a chance and baked it in a black silicone bundt cake pan. It came out a bit crumbly, but a day of sitting in the refrigerator helped that. Next time I will bake it at 325º and start checking it after 50 minutes. Great with a cup of coffee for breakfast. Thanks!
     
  2. This cake was lovely! The molasses and the cinnamom give it a lovely flavour. Thanks for posting the recipe!
