I have been promising you that I would introduce you to my Cast Iron Skillet Pie recipe. My mom and grandmother have made this recipe for as long as I can remember. My mom would make the pie filling and serve over warm homemade biscuits and call it “Chocolate Gravy.” It was a special treat for us and we would beg for it daily.
The one thing that makes this pie delicious is cooking it in a cast iron skillet. Maybe it’s all in my head or maybe it’s just the thought of it being made the same way generation after generation that makes it so good. I stick with the iron skillet. Why ruin a good thing?
Cast Iron Skillet Chocolate Pie
1 cup sugar
1 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
2 rounded Tbsp. cocoa
1 rounded Tbsp. butter (real butter ladies…no need for anything else)
2 rounded Tbsp. flour
In a bowl, combine sugar, flour and cocoa. In a cast iron skillet, melt butter. Add sugar mixture to melted butter. In another bowl, beat eggs and milk together. Add this mixture, a little at a time, to sugar mixture in skillet stirring constantly. Cook slowly. When thick enough, add vanilla and place in a baked pie shell. Top with meringue (which I hate ever since my brother told me it was calf slobbers) and bake at 325 degrees until meringue browned.
