Nana’s Funny Cake is the perfect dessert for a family gathering or weekend party. The pie crust adds a unique twist to a traditional cake recipe. This cake has a delicious chocolatey layer on the bottom and a crunchy chocolate layer on top. This recipe comes courtesy of Mary Lou Knauss of Duncannon, Pennsylvania.

“My mother-in-law made this Pennsylvania Dutch recipe for years. She brought it to the family cabin whenever we spent weekends together, and it has always been a family favorite! She shared the recipe with me when I got married, along with some of her other wonderful recipes. It continues to be a requested dessert.”

Nana"s funny cake

I do not see where they put a chocolate layer on the bottom of the cake. They added the cake batter but only the chocolate mix on top........
