Amish Shoo Fly Cupcakes

Kathie Carr


I got this recipe from an Amish lady who brought baked goods to the local Farmer's Market. The old fashioned molasses flavor with the crumb topping makes these cupcakes very good. They are not as rich as ShooFly Pie, which I find almost too much. These are just right, in my opinion.

How to Make Amish Shoo Fly Cupcakes


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare muffin tins with paper liners.

    Sift flour and sugar together. Cut cold butter into mixture with a fork until mixture is fine and crumbly. Reserved 1 cup of crumb mixture for topping.

    Dissolve cream of tartar and baking soda in cold water. Mix water and molasses into flour crumb mixture. Stir until blended. Fill each muffin cup about 2/3 full and sprinkle with reserved topping.
  2. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes, or until just done. Don’t over bake, or cupcakes will be dry and not so good. Makes 24 cupcakes.
