Some of my follower friends know that I live in NJ, right on the other side of the water from NYC. It has been extremely cold the pasts few weeks and I really can’t take this weather much longer……..it is way too extreme for me…..I think I have had it with the snow and extreme temperatures.
Is spring near?……
Anyhow, I have been craving some sort of warm chocolate dessert lately so I figured I could make brownies. I came up with brownie pie…..yum….yum….
I must say that I really love this brownie pie. Not only because it is super simple to put together, like many other desserts that I have made, but because it is really tasty and moist. I skipped the nuts this time around but next attempt will include the nuts, perhaps some walnuts.
It is good by itself or with some ice cream and chocolate sauce, as in the picture. I am sure it would also be just as good with caramel sauce. Either way, you can’t go wrong with this one. You may choose another type of baking pan if you prefer. It is a pie so I figured a 9 inch cake pan would do.
Let me know if you try it.
It is just like brownies. Moist, chocolaty and divine to say the least :-)
Yield: 8 servings
Total Time: 35 minutes
1/2 cup unrefined sugar
3 tablespoons olive oil, canola oil will also work
4 tablespoons water
2 organic eggs
1 1/3 cup dark chocolate chips
2/3 cups whole wheat pastry flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon chocolate extract, vanilla extract will also work
3/4 cup walnuts, optional
Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease and flour a 9 inch pie baking plate.
In a sauce pan, at low heat, mix water, oil and chocolate chips stirring occasionally. Remove from heat right before all the chocolate as melted and continue to stir until all the chocolate melts.
Add eggs and sugar and beat until combined. Add flour, baking soda and extract and nuts if desired.
Bake for 25-30 minutes or until almost set.
Miryam, I love this dessert! i want to make it this weekend. Thanks for posting that!
acabo de conocer tu blog, y me quedo por aqui un rato. Saludos.
These are yummy! It doesn’t say in the recipe when to put in the sugar, so I just added it with the other stuff in the first step. I baked mine at 325 for 18 minutes, and the sides are super dry and crumbly while the inside is still undone. Next time I’ll use a cake pan like you used in the pictures and not a pie pan and I’m sure dryness won’t be a problem. :)
I am glad you liked it although I wish the result could have been better for you. I didn’t have any problems with the cake using the 9 inch cake pan, sorry!
Thanks for mentioning the sugar thing :-)
I made this again but in a normal cake pan and not a pie pan and it was much more moist. I also replaced a lot of the sugar with honey and couldn’t tell any difference! It’s my mother-in-law’s new favorite thing and my husband absolutely loves them too, which means a lot. Thanks so much!
