German Chocolate Pie

I love chocolate in almost any way shape or form and German Chocolate Cake is one of my favorites. A few years ago a friend of mine passed along a recipe for German Chocolate Pie and I was in love. I tweaked the original recipe a little and this is what I came up with.

German Chocolate Pie


  • 2 T. cocoa
  • 1 c. sugar
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 c. pecans, chopped
  • 1/2 c. coconut, flaked
  • 2/3 c. evaporated milk
  • 1 t. vanilla
  • 3 T. butter or margarine, melted
  • 1 pie shell, unbaked


Preheat oven to 325.

Line a pie plate with the pie shell. Set to the side.

Mix remaining ingredients together.

Pour into the pie shell.

Bake for 45 – 50 minutes.



Pumpkin Honey Pancakes

This is a brand spanking new recipe in our house! It came about after I made some Pumpkin Muffins for our Pantry Challenge week. I was trying to use up some of the frozen pumpkins I had in the freezer. My 3-year-old fell in love with them and he insisted that on Thursday, Pancake day, we needed Pumpkin Pancakes.

He was up bright and early Thursday morning to help Momma. We made our basic Pancake recipe and then added the pumpkin. Added a little spice and it needed to be sweetened so he suggested some honey. (Yesterday was Winnie the Pooh day and we know what he loves to eat.) Below is the recipe that we came up and they were delicious! Continue reading “Pumpkin Honey Pancakes”
