A recipe for today

| | Comments (3)

Cruising through the newspaper's food section this morning, I came across this recipe. It comes originally from Linda Ellerbee's new book, Take Big Bites. The newspaper article said that it's the kind of recipe that everyone needs: an easy dessert that will knock the socks off of your guests. Make the "pie" and serve it with berries and ice cream on top:

Mama's Rescued Fudge Pie
Serves 8

2 oz unsweetened chocolate
1 stick (1/2 cup) butter
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup flour (yep, you read that right)
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Place chocolate and butter in a 4 cup Pyrex measure or a microwave-safe bowl. Heat on high heat for 1 minute, stir, and heat for 30 seconds more. Let sit for a minute or so and stir until chocolate dissolves completely. Ad sugar, flour eggs, vanilla and salt. Stir until well-combined. Pour into lightly oiled 9-inch pie pan.

Bake for 25 minutes. Let cool for as long as you can wait. If you can't wait, vanilla ice cream helps cool a slice of pie on your plate!

This sounds great, because it sounds easy. And I generally have all the necessary ingredients in my pantry/refrigerator.

Maybe I'll try it this weekend.


All right, here in the midwest, sticks of butter are 1/2 cup...so which is it? A stick? Or 1/4 cup??

Please answer quickly, I want to make this as soooon as possible. ;)


SORRY!!!!! It was a typo! It is one stick of butter or 1/2 cup!

I've corrected the post.
