I have a family member who cannot eat chocolate. He has requested that I make a Carob pie for him for the holidays. Does anyone know how to substitute carob powder for cocoa in order to make a chocolate (carob) pie? I'd appreciate any recipe help that you can give me.

Here are a few recipes I found online: http://www.recipegoldmine.com/piecream/piecream14.html , http://www.ivu.org/recipes/holiday/carob-j.html , http://www.ivu.org/hlsc/recipes/carob-pudding.html. Actually, if you key in "carob pudding" you can find lots of recipes...most using dates and cashews in the recipe. The following site suggests that you substitute cocoa with one and a half to two parts carob: http://www.mothernature.com/Library/Ency/Index.cfm/Id/1689004 I hope these sites help. God bless you, Connie, what a wonderful gift you are to your family member. (11/28/2005)
