35. mississippi mud pie

I've made this pie crust quite a number of times but this time, my digital scales battery dying messed it all up. Baking is a very exact science and i know this now for a fact. After dusting up my old scale and measuring everything out, the dough was a bit too oily so i added some more flour. It seemed to be okay till i rolled it out and was unable to lift it without it breaking up. After about three or four tries i gave up and had to redo the whole thing. I wasn't going to take any chances, i was pretty sure it would not come out right.

Second time around, it came out right so i moved on to making the filling. Dark chocolate, butter and golden syrup melted over boiling water and then poured into an egg and brown sugar mixture.

This rich chocolate filling was poured into the pie crust and baked till it had a crusty top and a wobbly centre. I then put it in the fridge overnight to set.

Topped with whipped cream and dark chocolate shavings. A chocolate lovers dream.
