Chocolate Funny Cake-Pie

Here we are again at Cake Wednesday and I have a little something different for you today. In case you are joining me for the first time, I have been baking my way through a vintage cake book and I post a new cake recipe every wednesday. It has been a super fun project and I have tried things I never would have otherwise.

When I saw this recipe I thought to myself,”Chocolate? Cake? Pie? AND it’s funny? Bring it on.”

Plus for this week I just really needed an easy recipe. We picked over a hundred pounds of apples on sunday and monday I made it all into applesauce and canned it and was up till midnight doing it, so I was a little on the worn out side.

I had canned peaches last week and had made a tart and frozen the extra pie crust left from that so this was especially easy since I didn’t even have to make the crust!

This was a super fun, easy and delicious recipe that the kids and I completely loved – it was a little like a tender and moist chocolate chip cookie. I loved it. I have a feeling I will be eating more today since it is sitting on the counter and I have no ability to resist anything with a pie crust.

Recipe By:
Recipe type: Dessert, Cake/Pie
Serves: 8-10
  • 1 - 9" pastry shell (use your favorite recipe or mine: Grandma's Pie Crust
  • ½ cup water
  • 2oz chocolate (I used chocolate chips)
  • ⅔ cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup butter
  • 1½ teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup walnuts, chopped
  • 1¼ cup sifted cake flour
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • 1¼ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup milk
  • ¼ cup butter, soft
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
Preparation Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 350˚.
  2. Roll out the pie crust and place in a 9" pie plate, set aside.
  3. In a saucepan over medium heat, combine the water and chocolate, stirring until the chocolate is melted.
  4. Add the sugar and, stirring constantly, bring to a boil. Remove from and stir in the butter and vanilla, set aside.
  5. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt (if you do not have an electric mixer, no worries, just use a bowl and spoon).
  6. Add the milk, butter and vanilla and the egg and beat on medium speed for 2 minutes (if doing it by hand - 200 strokes).
  7. Add the walnuts and beat for 1 more minute or 100 more strokes.
  8. Pour the batter into the pie shell.
  9. Stir the chocolate sauce and then carefully drizzle it all over the batter. It will sort of sink into it and that's what you're going for.
  10. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 45 minutes.
  11. Serve warm and topped with whipped cream.
