GF Hot Fudge Pie with Homemade Coconut Whipped Cream and Strawberry Coulis
This pie recipe is one of our family favorites. If you have my first cookbook, Nearly Normal Cooking for Gluten-Free Eating, you have probably seen this recipe and maybe even tried it for yourself. If not, you simply MUST!
This pie is better than any brownie you could imagine and it puts death-by-chocolate cakes to shame because you can enjoy even a hefty piece and not feel like you’ve just OD’d on sickeningly sweet chocolate! I add homemade coconut whipped cream to the pie if I craving something particularly decadent!
I have even made this pie deliciously lower glycemic, by using unrefined coconut palm sugar and no one would ever know! If you are searching for a low glycemic solution to your dietary cravings (like chocolate pie!), coconut palm sugar** may just be your solution to convert many recipes.
Whether you make this recipe dairy-free or refined sugar-free or not, I love that you have choices! Modify this recipe to suit your tastes and dietary restrictions, but serve it with confidence knowing that NO ONE will miss a thing with this amazingly delicious recipe — from my family to yours — enjoy!
Hot Fudge Pie
Preheat oven to 325° F.
Dissolve ½ cup cocoa in ¾ cup boiling water and set aside to cool.
Folding beaten egg whites into the batter.
Separate eggs, whipping the whites until stiff in a metal bowl with a whisk attachment on an electric mixer or a whisk and really strong arms!
In a separate bowl, cream the butter with sugar, flour, 2 separated egg yolks, and vanilla extract.
Add the cooled chocolate mixture, then fold in two stiffly beaten egg whites. Pour into an oiled and floured (with corn starch or Jules Gluten Free™ All Purpose Flour) 9 inch pie pan.
Bake for 1 hour and serve hot with vanilla ice cream, homemade coconut whipped cream, berry coulis or deliciously unadulterated.
**Organic, unrefined Coconut palm sugar retains much of its natural nutritional content after minimal processing, remaining high in Potassium, Magnesium, Zinc and Iron and also offering vitamin B1, B2, B3, B6 and C. I have successfully used it in many recipes myself, but if you are looking for loads more of these low glycemic gluten-free recipes, be sure to check out my friend Amy’s recipes at Simply Sugar & Gluten-Free.
