Chocolate Pie Extraordinaire!

Do not dismiss this simple pale looking pie!!
This is my first time to participate in Foodie Friday hosted by Miss Gollum. I've been lurking around and printing recipes for the last few weeks.

Just had to share this one with you!

This Chocolate Fudge Pie came from Susie Clark, Milam TX...I found this recipe in my copy of The Second Typically Texas Cookbook. I don't know Susie Clark but I'm telling you that she understands the need for good chocolate!! I'm sure she's famous among friends.

Here's the wonderful recipe:

Chocolate Fudge Pie
4 eggs, well beaten
2 cups sugar
1 t. vanilla
2 sticks margarine, melted
1/2 cup cocoa
1/2 cup flour
Pinch of salt
1 9 inch pie shell, unbaked

Mix all ingedients together well. Pour into pie shell. Bake at 350 degrees F. about 50 minutes or until set.

Note: This delicious pie comes out crusty on the top and ooey gooey inside!! You will be amazed at how wonderfully it all comes together. Another thing, it's simple to make.

Thanks for coming by and let me know if you try this pie. :)

Kitchen Trainwreck Story:

Well, I guess we are supposed to share a kitchen trainwreck we've experienced...One time years ago when I was hosting Bunco...I was running around in that mania that hits just before company comes. I had a cake in the oven. Suddenly, smoke was billowing in my kitchen. When I ran to the oven to see what was wrong I discovered a cup towel in the oven on fire! The ashes were blowing all around in the oven. Yikes! I hate to openly admit this but I think we ate the cake anyway. Some other time I will share some of the mishaps that my other Bunco friends have experienced...it will keep you in stitches.

Bet that pie is tasty! Funny Bunco story..I've had my share. I once locked myself out of the house..right after I put a cake in the oven. My husband had just left to go out of town. It took me 2 hours to get someone to help me into the house. Surprisingly the cake was only brown not black as I expected.

Kristi said...

This pie looks delicious! J would love this!

imjacobsmom said...

This pie sounds really good. I like how it develops a crusty surface. I'm the person that likes the "skin" on pudding and the crackly shells on chocolate candy. Mmmm! I bet your cake still tasted great anyway! ~ Robyn

Barbara said...

Hey Stacey, Awesome sounding pie...I love chocolate, so will give it a try.

So far, for Bunko or Bridge, I haven't had a major disaster, but I am sure one is in the makiing. Glad you didn't have a fire. Sorry but had to grin thinking of ashes floating around.

Thanks for caring words at the loss of Roy's mother.

Just a little something from Judy said...

A Chocolate Pie...the weekend...guests from out- of- state...perfect timing. Thank you Stacey. Thanks also for sharing the story of the shipwreck, because we have all been there and can relate.

Happy @ Home said...

That pie looks perfectly delicious. I'll be copying that recipe for sure.

I am really curious about the cup towel and am glad to see there is at least one other person who has never heard that term before.

Susan (Between Naps on the Porch) said...

LOL Stacey, you are sooo funny! I'd would eaten the cake, too...can't let a cake go to waste! Oh...and I think that's perfectly fine for to spray the linen water on your sheets. I've actually bought some before that suggested that! :-) Now I'm craving chocolate pie!

Donna@designson47thstreet said...

Goodness gracious! That pie sounds so good. I wish you would make me one..purdy please?? I need to save this recipe and maybe even try it at Easter.

I laughed about your burning towel and then serving the cake. I would have done the same thing.

Looks and sounds delicious! The planter chair you asked about is by my backdoor, which is where we come and go.

Bo said...

Hi Stacey...I have been having an intense craving for chocolate the last few days & I believe this pie would cure it...thanks!
Burnt cup towel smelling cake doesn't sound so bad when I think of the cake I served with shards of broken glass in it...(I was 12)
;-) Bo

Ms. Tee said...

Yummm - and I'm craving chocolate. :)

Nola @ the Alamo said...

Too bad blogs aren't scented; I'd settle on just a whiff of that pie. It sounds delish! I love the fire story; I'd have still eaten the cake, too!

You never know what you may find when you "google" your name! I am Susie Clark from Milam, Texas. The pie receipe is my husband's grandmother's. She was from Henderson Tx. His mother Billie Clark passed it on to me as it was one of her "baby's" favorites. Jimmy and I have been married 32 years for prespective...long enough to scorch a towel or two in the oven! Thanks for making me smile today!:) Susie
