Fudge Pie

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!! I’m working on my dishes to take to my mom’s today. I’m taking Pecan Pie Bars & another dessert I’ll be sharing with you soon if it turns out.  Have you gotten everything ready for your thansksgiving dinner yet? This fudge pie would be a great addition to your holiday meal as a chocolate option.  This is yet another recipe that my mom has been making since my childhood.  It is fudgy, chocolatey, and super easy to throw together for a last minute dessert. This is best served warm with ice cream over top.  Sorry there’s no ice cream in the pictures, I took the pictures a few days after and had no ice cream left over.  This basically tastes like a brownie but in pie form!

1 stick plus 2 tbsp. butter, melted
5 tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup all purpose flour
pinch salt
2 eggs
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.  Grease a 9 inch pie pan, set aside.

Melt butter either in the microwave in 30 second intervals or on the stove over low heat.

In the bowl of a stand mixer, add melted butter. Add in the cocoa powder & sugar.  Mix well then add in flour & salt and mix until combined.  Add in eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.  Add in vanilla and mix until combined. Pour batter into prepared pan, distributing evenly.

Bake for approximately 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.  Let cool 1-2 minutes then serve warm topped with ice cream.

    I happened upon your blog in looking for a recipe for the sour cream rolls. I’d made them many times, but not recently and wanted to make sure I had the ingredients right. So I found that, then read about the Pecan Bars and made them today too. I wanted to forward your site to a friend, and in looking the address up, I just saw the Fudge Pie recipe! I’ll be up all night! I’m going to make that before I go to bed. Needless to say, I love reading this and am very glad I stumbled upon it! If there’s a subscription, sign me up!
    Happy Thanksgiving and thanks for sharing!

    Mmmm! Made it yesterday but I cut it into squares. It was very simple to make. It it did taste brownie-like! It was very fudgy, had a nice crinkly top, was a gorgeous colour, was beautifully chocolatey, was dense, but not too dense, and not too dark or too sugary. Thanks for the recipe!

  10. I was very happy with the results. fudgy and fantastic. I loved how it was more chocolately than sweet. richer than the sugar packed stuff. I just wish the brownies would be thicker, any idea how to make them like that? thank you so much for the great recipe!!!
