I bought a pie crust last week...this is not something I thought I would ever say! However, my lovely blogger friend Susie wrote a post a couple weeks ago about a delicious chocolate pie she recently made and her pictures were VERY convincing.
After reading through the recipe I thought I would give it ago seeing as I hadn't done much in the dessert line lately. I also thought I had a can of evaporated milk in the cupboard, alas, there were only two cans of condensed milk and after some through reading on both I decided NOT use one instead of the other....this small decision is why the pie crust went back in the freezer and it has taken me over a week and a half to finally buy the correct milk! Does anyone else out there feel like the days are just moving way to fast at the moment?
Anyhow, Susie you were right this is a very quick and easy dessert to whip up, however, I am thinking I got lost in translation and didn't quite manage to deliver a pie as magnificent as yours!
I had to convert ounces into grams and I could of got a little heavy when gigging the figures because when I look at Susie's pie here, as you can see hers is firm but silky where mine looks more silky centred than voluptuously firm and has a spongy skin (Help-is what I am saying Susie!!)
As you can see from Alex licking the bowl, the mixture is pretty darn tasty and I have to say when we sat down to a piece with a cup of tea yesterday I was impressed with the flavour. I have decided to remove a few grams from my original 150 something grams of evaporated milk down to 145grams and see how that works but first we need to polish off the rest of this pie and from the oohhh's and arrgh's coming from the boys that won't take long!
