    Pot Scrubber's Note:

    My mother has been making this recipe for over 20 years. The original recipe comes from the cookbook White Trash Cooking by Matthew Meckler. This has a dense texture and intense almost dark chocolate flavor instead of a creamy pudding type filling.

    My Private Note


    Serves: 8



    Units: US | Metric

    • 4 eggs (you just need the yolks)
    • 236.59 ml milk
    • 88.74 ml cocoa powder
    • 59.14 ml hot water (I microwave it for 30 seconds in my measuring cup)
    • 14.79 ml vanilla extract (yes... that is a TB not tsp)
    • 118.29 ml margarine (soften the margarine in the microwave for 20-30 seconds)
    • 354.88 ml white sugar
    • 44.37 ml flour
    • 1 unbaked pie shell (I like to use the Pillsbury unroll and bake pie crusts...)


    1. 1
      Beat egg yolks with half of the sugar and the melted margarine. (melt margarine in the micro for about 20 seconds -- you don't want it to be too hot or it will cook the egg yolks when you add it).
    2. 2
      Mix the other half of sugar with the cocoa and flour and add the 1/4 cup of scorching hot water. Mix with a whisk until smooth.
    3. 3
      Combine the two mixtures and mix thoroughly.
    4. 4
      Add vanilla and milk and mix thoroughly.
    5. 5
      Don't get upset if mixture seems thin. It will set after baking.
    6. 6
      Pour into an unbaked pie shell and cover the edges with foil or a pie ring to prevent the crust edges from browning excessively. Bake for 55-60 minutes at 325. It will still be a little "jiggly" bit it will set up nicely as it cools.
    7. 7
      Let cool at room temperature for a couple of hours and then put it in the fridge for a couple of hours to cool good and proper.
    8. 8
      Then -- serve well chilled with homemade whipped cream or just be white trash like me and use Cool Whip.
    9. 9
      Note: Most chocolate cakes and pies etc. have a small amount of salt because salt greatly enhances the flavor. Even candy bars have quite a bit of salt in them. This recipe calls for no salt because margarine has a lot of salt. If you substitute unsalted butter for the margarine add a 1/2 tsp to the recipe.

      Awesome! Served for Thanksgiving and will definitely make this again. The most perfect chocolate pie. Rich, delicious, and really beautiful. I'd like to say that I whipped cream myself and topped with chocolate shavings, but I used the pressurized stuff in the can and everyone was happy. Thanks so much for sharing the recipe!

      I don't think there's anything white trash about this pie. It's fantastic! I used Hershey's dark cocoa & 1/2 c milk & 1/2 cup half & half, because I didn't want my half & half to go to waste. I topped with cool whip, but the egg whites could be used for a meringue too. Scrumptious, decadent, fabulous!!!!
