This Warm, Chocolaty Pie Only Requires 6 Ingredients!
Happy New Year! As many of you were probably up late last night, and may not be in the mood to bake, I wanted to share a warm, delicious recipe that will take little effort. This 6-ingredient dessert is both easy and quick, and best of all, you can eat it almost right out of the oven because it’s best served warm. It’s called Fudgy Chocolate Pie and it’s more cake-like than pie, but it is fudgy and chocolaty and has the heavenly flavour of vanilla. It’s the perfect comfort treat on a lazy day. If you’re a nut fan like I am, adding chopped walnuts and serving with vanilla ice cream will only make this dessert better. Enjoy and have a sweet and scrumptious 2010!
FUDGY CHOCOLATE PIE
1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup cocoa
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp vanilla
1/3 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9 inch pie plate and set aside.
In a large bowl, mix together the melted butter, sugar, cocoa and flour. Beat in the eggs and vanilla (stir in walnuts if you desire). Pour batter into pie plate and bake for 15-20 minutes or until the edges are firm to the touch but the middle is still soft.
Cool for 5 to 10 minutes or until the centre firms up, then serve warm.
You can have a moist, homemade chocolate cake in about 30 minutes!
I was having a last minute dinner party a couple weeks ago and wanted a quick dessert. I considered buying something, but I decided that baking a homemade cake would be faster than going out to the store. I’ve used this recipe on a few occasions so I knew it was a winner. It’s called One Bowl Chocolate Cake and I found it on Allrecipes.com. It only takes minutes to combine the batter and 30 minutes to bake, then voila, you’ve got a rich, moist, delicious, homemade chocolate cake that your guests will love! This dessert is easy, quick and impressive…my friend even asked if I used a cake mix. You can whip up a quick frosting or do as I did and use a prepared can. You’ll thank me for this one! Enjoy!

In a large bowl, stir together the sugar, flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add the eggs, milk, oil and vanilla, mix for 2 minutes on medium speed of mixer. Stir in the boiling water last. Batter will be thin. Pour evenly into the prepared pans.
Bake 30 to 35 minutes in the preheated oven, until the cake tests done with a toothpick. Cool in the pans for 10 minutes, then remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
