"This is a cake/pie combination. The chocolate layer will sink to the bottom, giving it a gooey layer. A Mennonite favorite!"

This cake is such a surprise! It is so easy to make and I normally have everything I need to make it, except the pie crust. And I do normally have ingredients to make that. Delicious and a cake you keep going back for just another "bite". Be careful or you may eat it all yourself!

We enjoyed this pie/cake which was also very easy to make. We used a pillsbury pie crust inserted into a pie dish. Thanks for sharing!
