This recipe is probably one of my mother’s most requested recipe. It is a must for chocolate lovers. My nephew and I have been trying to duplicate the Fudge Pie we remember.  I thought his problem was that he needed to reduce the cooking time by a couple of minutes.  He told me that he needed to cook it longer to get the roght consistency.  It is still a great dessert if you cook it 30 minutes like the recipe calls for.  No one will ever replace my mom and I guess the missing ingredient is her love.  Try it. It is very easy to make.  Give me your thoughts.

Fudge Pie
1 square Unsweetened Baking Chocolate
½ cup Margarine (2 sticks)
1 cup Sugar
2 Eggs
½ cup Flour
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
Preheat oven to 325 degrees and grease a 9 inch pie pan. In a double boiler, melt chocolate. Cream margarine until soft. Gradually add sugar and continue until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating hard after each. Stir in the chocolate.  Mix in flour and vanilla extract.  Pour into pie pan and bake 30 minutes.  At dessert time, cut into wedges and serve with ice cream.


I lived in New Orleans, since birth, until Hurricane Katrina. I now live in Arkansas with my wife and our spoiled-rotten dog. I have been cooking since I was 8. My first cookbook, You can't keep New Orleans out of the cook, is now available at publishamerica.net and most online bookstores. It is also available on Kindle and Nook.
