The shoo-fly pie is part of our German and Pennsylvania Dutch background.
The shoo-fly pie is a wet-bottom molasses pie that used to sit on the window sills and attract flies, hence the shoo-fly name. It has a gooey bottom, cake-like middle, and crumb topping. Mmmmm good!
We've decided to share our shoo-fly pie recipe as part of an introduction to our on-line Maple Springs Country Farm Cookbook. Click on the link below for the recipe. Shoo-fly pie 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 shoo-fly for breakfast, but I could eat them any time of the day!
