Funny Cake


Put a pie crust in 9 or 10 inch glass pie plate.  Get a white or yellow cake mix (Jiffy works well).   Mix up the cake mix.  Into the cake mix put in 3 tablespoons of crushed pecans.  After mixing up the cake mix with the pecans, pour it into the pie crust.

Next mix up the icing.  It consists of ¾ cup of water, 1 cup of sugar, ½ cup of cocoa and 1 stick of butter.   Heat until butter melts and then pour the sauce or icing over the cake mix before baking. 

Bake at 350 degrees until done about 35 minutes.

The icing will go to the bottom of the pie plate while cooking giving the cake a marble effect and will settle between the cake and the pie crust making a chocolate layer at the bottom.

It is as the name implies a funny cake.
