The Ingredients: A Symphony of Flavours

  • 1 ready-made pie crust

  • 1 egg, beaten (for brushing)

  • Optional: vanilla sugar or coarse sugar (for sprinkling)

  • 4 large eggs

  • 300 grams granulated sugar

  • 60 grams of unsweetened cocoa powder

  • 2 teaspoons instant coffee granules

  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

  • 115 grams of Stork butter, melted

  • 1 tablespoon liquor (optional)

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

  • 90 grams NOVI chocolate, broken into chunks

The Method: Crafting Your Pie

Step 1: Preparing the Oven and Pie Crust

Preheat your oven to 190°C. Fit the pie crust into a 9-inch pie plate, brush the edge with beaten egg, and sprinkle with vanilla sugar. Prick the bottom lightly with a fork, line it with parchment, and fill with weights. Freeze for 10-15 minutes.

Step 2: Baking the Crust

Bake the crust until set, about 20 minutes. Remove the weights and bake until golden, another 5 minutes. Then, reduce the oven temperature to 175°C.

Step 3: Mixing the Filling

Whisk eggs and sugar, and add cocoa powder, coffee, and salt. Blend in melted butter, liquor, and vanilla. Fold in chocolate chunks.

Step 4: Assembling and Baking

Pour the filling into the crust and bake for 45-55 minutes. The pie should be puffed but wiggly in the centre. Let it cool slightly before serving.
