Quakertown Crumb cake pie is an old mennonite dish served for breakfast. It is similiar to shoo-fly but slightly gooier and slightly crumblier and it does have a slightly different taste.
So I had this pie out to take pictures of it in the morning sun and guess what my teenager grabbed it and ate like 1/2 the pie. So the other 1/2 never made it
till morning... Sorry this was as good as the pictures got! Musta been reeeeaaaaal good!!!
We have both our shoofly and funny cake recipe available online at our Maple Springs Country Farm Cookbook.. Shoo-fly is a little easier to make than funny cake. But, of course you have to practise the crust a few times to get it to taste like mom's. Most folks serve the funny cake for breakfast, but I could eat them any time of the day!
Boil "Part I" until it thickens. Set aside. Rub "Part II" together for crumbs.
Pour boiled mixture in unbaked pie crusts and spread crumbs on top.
Bake at 350 till done.
Makes 3 medium sized cakes.
