How to make it

  • Top part:
  • Cream together sugar and butter or shortening.
  • Combine the milk and egg alternately with the flour and baking powder. Mix well.
  • Add the vanilla and mix well again.
  • Set aside until lower part is mixed.
  • Lower part:
  • Mix together the cocoa, sugar, water and vanilla.
  • Pour into the unbaked pie shell.
  • Over this, pour the top part.
  • The chocolate will come up around the outside edge, but that gives it a nice crusty edge on the finished product!
  • Bake at 350° for 35 minutes or until firm. (Do the toothpick test)

    This is a different twist to the original recipe, but the same ingredients.

    It's called funny cake because the chocolate is added last, but ends up n the bottom n top of the crust.
