Fudge Pie - Breakfast of Champions



My mama made this pie. It's one of her signature recipes.

Ingredients:
3/4 cup butter or margarine

3/4 cup chopped pecans, toasted and divided
Toppings: vanilla ice cream and chocolate syrup

Directions:
Cook butter and chocolate in a small saucepan over low heat, stirring often until melted.

Beat eggs at medium speed with an electric mixer 5 minutes. Gradually add sugar, beating until blended. Gradually add chocolate mixture, flour, and vanilla, beating until blended. Stir in 1/2 cup pecans.

Pour mixture into a lightly greased 9-inch pieplate.

I was so glad to hear that you also loved Screen Doors and Sweet Tea too. It really is a fun book with lots of great stories and recipes.

Your mom's fudge pie looks like a great way to start the day.

I love pie for breakfast! My favorite is a slice of cold pumpkin pie with a cup of coffee on the day after Thanksgiving. Heavenly!

Jenn said...

I love this recipe, but I use a chocolate crumb crust! It really makes a difference

Jennifurla - yes ma'am. It was a sinful day all starting with that pie...

Thomas - so glad you remember this pie! She still makes it often.

Kim - I love that you find Screen Doors as enjoyable as I do. One of my pipe dreams is to take a road trip and go to Martha's cooking school for a day. Would be incredible!

Heidi - I'm with you. I actually believe pumpkin pie is a healthy way to start the day. It's got fiber, right?

Jenn - Same here. Which is why I now have to ban this pie from my house for a little while...

Diana - I wish I could send you some! I wonder how it would hold up in the mail...

Brownieville Girl - yes it is:)

Sarah - what a great idea! More chocolate!! Thanks for sharing;)
