The Ultimate Chocolate Fudge Pie

Someone suggested I should take the day off from blogging. But that’d be no fun. You know what would be fun? Sharing one of my absolute favorite recipes in the whole wide world! What if I told you… What if I told you that in less than ten minutes, you can make this: Chocolate Fudge Pie. What if I told you that this pie is… Dangerously rich and deliciousMuch healthier than it tastes (and lower in calories, too!) Warning: If you bring this chocolate pie to parties, people will devour every last chocolatey bite. You won’t want to share. The ultimate “does not taste healthy” dessert.

Even my health-food-hating friends like this pie. Well, maybe this pie and the Deep-Dish Cookie Pie. My friends say it’s a tie.

Prepared with silken tofu in place of the eggs and butter called for in traditional recipes, this chocolate cake is one of the healthiest around, and it is still so tasty! Frost with whatever dairy-free frosting suits the occassion. Although many recipes that call for silken tofu require that you drain the liquid from the box before using, for this recipe, just open the box and pour both the liquid and tofu into the blender as directed in step 3. Nothing says summer to me like a big jug of Pimm's mixed with lemonade, strawberries, cucumber and mint.

It is the perfect accompaniment to any BBQ or if I'm being honest, to any warm and sunny day. The dangerous thing is that Pimm's now comes premixed in a can. I'm thinking all picnics from now on!? So you get the idea that I love Pimm's, so it can only be a logical progression to try and freeze it and make it into lolly form. I did worry as alcohol doesn't freeze, but these came out so spectacularly well that even my non Pimm's loving boyfriend liked them. Makes 4 Lollies.

Dan Lepard: How to bake the alchemist's chocolate cake

This chocolate cake still has a rich, deep flavour, a delicate, moist texture, but very little fat or refined sugar, and it's quick to make. If you cut it into 10 slices, it works out about 220 calories a serving, with only half the fat and a quarter of the carbs of a typical un-iced cake. Up the calories a little by serving with a spoonful of low-fat crème fraîche and chocolate shavings. One 415g tin pear halves in juice 75g cocoa powder 125g caster sugar 3 tsp vanilla extract 50ml walnut oil 1 large egg 225g plain flour 2½ tsp baking powder Drain the pears, reserving the juice. Meanwhile line the bottom and sides of a 20cm round cake tin with non-stick baking paper and preheat the oven to 170C (150C fan-assisted)/ 325F/gas mark 3. Scrape the mixture into the cake tin and bake for 40 minutes, or until a skewer comes out clean.
