1 1/2 cups
unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 tablespoons
1 (12 fluid ounce) can
pastry for a 9 inch single crust pie
I used 2 Tablespoons cocoa instead of 2 teaspoons and the pie was great. I cooked it for 50 minutes and it was crispy and delicious. My other German Chocolate Pie recipe makes 2 pies and I only wanted 1, so this was perfect. Will make again.
I have to agree with previous reviewer, Zita on this one. Two teaspoons of cocoa in a German CHOCOLATE pie? Shouldn't there have been some chocolate chips or baker's chocolate somewhere in the recipe? And also, I baked it for the suggested 45 minutes and the top started to burn but the center was STILL liquidy. You were right Zita, a waste of ingredients. I'll only make this again if it's revamped with more chocolate added. Sorry :(
There was no chocolate flavor at all. The recipe called for 2 teaspoons of cocoa, maybe it was supposed to be more. I have had this pie before at a restaurant and this tasted nothing like it. What a disappointment and waste of ingredients!
This pie great tasting, and was easy to make and everyone liked it, even if they did not like coconut and nuts. I used walnuts, as that is what I had.
I ended up trying this pie because I had all the ingredients on hand. I read all the reviews before preparing and decided to tweek it a touch. Here is what I did: I added 2 Tablespoons of cocoa, used evaporated skim milk, added a cup of coconut and only had sliced almonds for the nuts. After it baked 45 minutes I checked it and it was real runny, that's when I realized that I had forgotten to add the cornstarch. So I baked it around 15 more minutes and let it rest for 30 minutes before slicing. It was perfect! - with a nice smooth creamy pudding-like texture. The nuts worked and the evaporated skim milk was fine. Hubby loved it with a glass of milk. So I recommend everyone to try this recipe.
I made this pie for my DH for his birthday. It was really fantastic and so easy. I did use 2 TBSP unsweetened cocoa as others suggested. It was very rich and chocolatey and he just loved it! Thank you for this recipe.
Great pie, easy to prepare and a hit with the family! I added 2 tablespoons cocoa powder on the second pie and came out with a richer chocolate flavor. Thanks for sharing!
