Old Fashioned Chocolate Pie

A few nights ago I made this for my Mom. 

It is similar to the recipe she’s made many times over the years for Thanksgiving.  It was delicious!  I kept out some of the custard filling, that’s why the pie is not as thick as it could be.  I was kinda proud of my meringue, tho! 


Old Fashioned Chocolate Pie

1 (9 inch) pie crust, pre-baked

1 cup white sugar

4 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder

4 tablespoons flour

1 pinch salt

3 eggs, separated

2 cups milk

4 tablespoons butter

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/4 cup white sugar


Preheat oven to 400º F (200º C).

To Make Chocolate Custard: In a large saucepan or double boiler combine 1 cup of sugar, cocoa powder, flour, and salt.  Mix well, then stir in egg yolks and milk.  Whisk until all ingredients are thoroughly combined. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture has the consistency of pudding.

Stir vanilla extract and butter or into custard.   Pour mixture into baked pie shell.

To Make Meringue: In a medium glass or metal bowl whip egg whites until foamy.  Gradually add 1/4 cup sugar, continuing to beat until whites form stiff peaks (I used the Kitchenaid for this).   Spread meringue over chocolate custard, covering completely.

.Bake in preheated oven for 5 to 6 minutes, until meringue is golden brown.   Cool before serving.

  1. I made this today and it was great! I substituted half of the milk with heavy cream!

    • Thank you so much! I wish my dear mom was around so I could tell her that someone enjoyed her pie recipe. 😊❤️ I’m glad you liked it. I can only imagine how cream would add to the richness! 🥰. Thanks for your feedback.
