Originally intended as a simple breakfast to be enjoyed with morning coffee before a hard day’s work, shoo-fly pie is heavy, rich and thoroughly satisfying, best enjoyed in smallish portions. Because molasses remains the central flavor of this pie, it is important to use one that you like. To my taste, a half-and-half mix of Grandma’s Original molasses, which is mild to the point of tasting like a brown-sugar simple syrup, and Brer Rabbit, which is much more aggressively flavored and rich, works nicely. Read my feature on shoo-fly pie to learn more about this dessert. About the author: Amanda Clarke is a recovering restaurant pastry chef with a background in architecture.

A southern or Pennsylvaina Dutch dish that is too good to pass up. The story goes that when this pie was baked the aroma of the molasses as it cooled on the window sill would draw flies to the sweetness. Therefore the name of the pie....shoo fly

I grew up in Philadelphia. Every so often my Grandparents and my parents would take me for that Sunday ride. We would often go to Lancaster. One of my favorite things besides the smorgasbords was bringing home a slice of SHOOFLY PIE and having it when we returned home at night with a cold glass of milk before I went to bed and off to dreamland. This recipe I am sharing with you is a recipe that is the best of the best. I eventually grew up and moved there and my daughter was even born in Lancaster. So being in the Amish community so many recipes are given between the Amish and Mennonite communities amongst their own and you can have them shared with you. Then there are tons of cook books. Me loving shoofly pie I was on a journey. I thought I had the perfect recipe until I moved out of the area. I met a person whose grandma was from Lancaster he shared this recipe that is very unusual and the best of the lot from the best I thought I made and from the endless of others I ever tried and made. I hope you enjoy this. This is very un-traditional and a very wet bottom shoofly pie.

This is a variation on shoo fly pie. This is a very moist cake with a light crumb topping.

Slight variations on Shoo-fly pie abound. This wet-bottom technique recipe hails from Lancaster county where my college roommate's family settled generations ago. For more on the history of Shoo-fly pie, check out Amanda Clarke's history of the dish. Crumb addicts may want to increase the the crumb topping by half (thus reserving one-third of the crumb mix for the filling and two-thirds for the topping).
