I love fruit ending in “erries”; blueberries, strawberries, raspberries and blackberries.
What better way to celebrate blueberry picking season than with the other super food—chocolate.
Here’s a recipe for a decadently delicious, brownie-like-chocolate-pie, with a few different suggestions on serving it (my favorite way to eat it, is topped with any berry in season).
This recipe is quick and easy, and you probably have all the ingredients in your home to make it right now.
1 stick unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup flour
3 TBSP. cocoa powder (use a good quality one, it really does make a difference)
1 tsp. salt
Pre-heat oven to 350 F
In a bowl, add butter and mix until smooth, then add sugar and mix together until creamy.
Add eggs and vanilla, and mix well.
In a separate bowl, add: flour, cocoa powder, and salt, and mix well.
Add dry ingredients to butter mixture and mix well.
Line a pie plate with parchment paper (or you can also grease it and add a bit of flour so it doesn’t stick.
Bake for 30 minutes (or until center is done).
Top it off with a dollop of whipped cream, and favorite berries, and you have a dessert filled with super-antioxidants.
Sprinkle icing (confectioners) sugar on top.
Enjoy with a scoop of ice-cream.
