I was craving shoofly pie but didn't want to make a regular pie, as E doesn't like them so I would have to eat the whole pie! (That would be a real hardship, now wouldn't it?) Anyway, I suddenly remembered that I had seen a recipe for a Crustless Shoofly Pie. I looked for the particular cookbook that had it in it and decided to make it right then and there!  So here it is. It was a little bit gooey on the bottom, just enough, and somewhat cakey on the top part. Perfect!  I will give Jeanne Jones her due, as this came from her cookbook, Cooking From the Cupboard. It was very tasty and hit the 'spot'!
Must use a deep enough pie plate as  it rises up quite a bit.
Still too hot to eat, should have waited for it to cool but just couldn't do that.
Oops! Had two pieces! Oh, so good!
This is the molasses that I used. It is a sorghum and molasses combination.
 But next time I will use just straight molasses and it would have even more flavor.
Here are the ingredient in the syrup that I used. Using sorghum gave it a whole different taste, I'm sure. And you can be sure that I will make it again!
If you so choose, you can click a photo to make it larger and to make your mouth water! He He!!!!
