Ingredients

Top Part:

  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter (softened)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup milk

Lower Part:

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup baking cocoa
  • 1/3 cup hot water
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
  • Pie pastry for 1 crust*
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  • In a medium bowl, cream together the sugar, butter, egg and vanilla.
  • In a separate bowl, mix together the baking powder and flour.
  • Add the flour mixture to the sugar mixture alternately with milk.
  • Mix just until combined.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the sugar and cocoa. Add the hot water and vanilla and mx until combined completely.
  • Use a storebought single pie crust or your favorite pie crust recipe ( here's ours! ) and press it into a pie plate.
  • Pour the chocolate mixture into the pie crust, then spoon the cake batter over top the chocolate. Use the back of the spoon to gently spread the batter over top. Be careful doing this and don't worry if it doesn't cover the whole top. It will spread as it bakes. You want the fudgy chocolate to stay on the bottom of the pie and not get mixed in.
  • Sprinkle the mini chocolate chips over the pie.
  • Bake at 375 for 27-30 minutes until the cake is set.
