Recipe For Chocolate Cream Pie

My husband says his mother made the most wonderful chocolate cream pie from scratch. All he remembers is that she used to shave the chocolate into a cooking pan. But he says that the chocolate pudding part was so thick, that a fork would stand up in it.


Does anyone have a recipe like this? I would really appreciate any help. Thank you.

Recipe For Chocolate Cream Pie

Here is my recipe for old fashioned Chocolate Cream Pie. I got it from a friend's great grandmother. It's my favorite to make reminds me of the diner days. Homemade pudding you cook on the stove, there's no better way.

Homemade Chocolate Pie (Tina's)

  • 1 pie crust
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 heaping Tbsp. of unsweetened baking cocoa
  • 2 cups milk
  • 3 eggs, separated
  • 1 Tbsp. vanilla
  • 2 Tbsp. butter
Preheat Oven to 350 degrees F. Bake pie crust till golden brown. Prick the bottom and sides. Mix the sugar, cornstarch and cocoa together in a medium size pot. Add the 2 Cups Milk and blend together. Stir constantly with a wire whisk over medium high heat. Add the 3 egg yolks add a little of the chocolate mixture to the egg yolk and blend before adding to the pudding mix. Stir constantly until thickened and bubbly.

Remove from heat and add the vanilla and the butter. Remove from burner and let cool while you prepare the meringue.

Mix the 3 egg whites with a dash of cream of tarter along with 2 Tablespoons sugar. Whip the egg whites till stiff and soft peaks form. Add pudding to cooled pie shell and top with meringue making sure the meringue touches the sides of the pie crust to prevent shrinking. Broil till lightly golden brown.
