Hot Fudge Pie

Hot Fudge Pie

I saw this recipe and had to try it.  It’s somewhere  between a flourless chocolate cake and a warm brownie.  Easy to whip up, and rich enough that it will comfortably serve 8 adults.  It could be fancied up with either a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream or some fresh whipped cream.



4 ounces unsalted butter, with a bit extra for greasing pie plate
squares unsweetened baking chocolate (1.5 ounces)
1 cup sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
¼ cup AP flour
2 tablespoons milk


Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.  Butter an eight-inch diameter pie plate or cake pan – use a glass or ceramic, if possible – or use cooking spray.  Melt butter and chocolate (this is what a microwave is for).  Cool.  Mix sugar into beaten eggs, combine until sugar is fully incorporated.  Mix in cooled butter-chocolate mixture until completely blended.  Add vanilla and milk.  Stir well.  Fold in flour, mixing just until no white streaks remain – do not overbeat. Bake for 25 minutes.
