Last week my husband baked the tastiest easy chocolate pie for his grandma. Sweet, I know. He had less than an hour until she was due at our door so we scrambled for this tried and true 5-star pie recipe tucked safely into my recipe binder.
This easy chocolate pie recipe came to me from a “Luscious Literature” seminar I took in university, and couldn’t be simpler. I suppose that’s why the professors chose it, but I kept the recipe for the pie’s rich chocolate flavor and no-fuss ingredient list. If you’re in a hurry, be sure to use this handy pie-crust rolling tip. You won’t be disappointed!
*Note: This recipe makes 2 pies but can be halved exactly to bake one.
- 4 eggs, lightly beaten
- 2 c. sugar
- 1 c. flour
- 2 t. vanilla
- 1 c. butter
- 1 (12 oz.) package semisweet chocolate chips
- 2 unbaked 9" pie crusts
- Preheat oven to 350F.
- Over low heat, melt chocolate and butter in a small saucepan stirring frequently. Set aside to cool.
- Using an electric mixer, beat eggs and sugar until thick. Add flour and vanilla mixing until there are no clumps. Blend in chocolate mixture and pour filling into the pie shells.
- Bake 30-35 minutes or until center is just set. Allow to cool for at least 30 minutes before serving.
- Excellent served warm alongside vanilla ice cream or a tall glass of milk.
What is your favorite fast & easy pie recipe?
Oh this looks amazing! And it seems so simple! I am imagining myself eating this with a pile of vanilla bean ice cream on top! YUM!
Yes, it is fantastic with ice cream. To be honest, these photos don’t do the pie justice at all. I just snapped a quick couple before I served it to my granny-in-law. It’s always so awkward taking foodie shots right in front of guests, haha.
This looks amazing and not bad at all! I definitely will be putting this in my recipe book, too! Thanks!
Your recipe book will thank you 🙂 Chelsea, this really is the simplest baked pie in the universe and tastes divine. Topped with vanilla ice cream or even whipped cream and partnered with coffee it is indulgence at it’s finest. Thanks for stopping by tonight!
Oh man, that sounds even more delicious! Okay, this is definitely happening!
Awesome! Chelsea, do let me know what you think. It’s always great to get feedback on my recipes that’s not from my husband who will eat almost anything 😉
Chocolaty….deliciousness….oh my, my mouth is watering for it right now. University taught you well 🙂
Thanks, Claire. I may have learned a few things in uni after all 😉 In all seriousness, this pie is fab and if my husband can make it (who does indeed like to cook but doesn’t do it much) anyone can whip it up in no time. Happy to meet you today. See you around soon.

It was fabulous! My daughter Shaniah loved it so much she ate two slices. 🙂 It was yummy, thanks -Andrea@scrapality.com
Yay! I’m so glad your family liked the pie, Andrea!! It’s always great to hear non-biased feedback on my recipes. Of course, I know my husband will give me his straightforward opinion, but sometimes friends are a little too kind, if you know what I mean. So happy you tried it. Have a super weekend and holiday season. Hope to see you around again soon.
