Janet Groene's Shoo Fly Cake

You’ve heard of Shoo Fly Pie. This cake version is easier to make yet it retains all the old-time taste of this Amish favorite. Make it in a 9 X 9-inch square pan and cut into 9 portions.

2 cups flour
1 cup brown sugar
3/4 stick of butter
1 cup boiling water
½ cup molasses
1 ½ teaspoons baking soda.
    Cut butter into a mixture of the flour and brown sugar until mealy. Remove and save a heaping half cupful.   Bring water to a boil in a pan or micro-safe cup or bowl large enough to hold 3 cups.  (Mixture may froth up).  Stir molasses and baking soda into water until it stops foaming, then fold  liquid into the flour mixture until it’s evenly moistened. Put in a greased square pan and sprinkle with reserved crumb mixture. Bake 40 to 45 minutes, or until it’s springy to the touch, at 350 degrees.
