I have made Funny Cakes for years! I’ve made the crusts and they always turned out beautiful, like funny cakes can. When we went gluten-free, I didn’t make them for awhile. How do you mess with such a good thing, right? After many tries with a gluten-free crust, I decided to go with a frozen pre-made crust. Wholly Wholesome makes a really good pie crust that I like to use for pies. I find them at Giant and Hennings. Get the frozen crust out of the freezer 10 minutes before you are ready to use. When it is thawed, you can pinch the edge gently to make a nice edge.
Funny Cake – Gluten Free
Syrup – mix together and set aside (whisk well)
1/2 c raw sugar
1/4 c organic baking cocoa
1/2 c hot water
1/2 t. vanilla
1 c raw sugar
1/4 c extra light olive oil
Cream together then add
1/2 c milk ( I use raw)
1/2 t vanilla
Sift together and add
1 c Pamela’s all purpose gluten-free flour blend
1/2 t salt
1 t. aluminum free baking powder
Whisk until combined, do not over mix, this will cause it to sink in the middle!
Pour creamed mixture into unbaked 9″ pie crust and pour syrup over top. Bake at 375 degrees for 50 minutes. Enjoy!
