Gooey Brownie Pie

Gooey Brownie Pie – a gooey chocolate brownie with a crackly top baked into a pie and topped with hot fudge. A delicious and easy dessert for any chocolate lover.

Brownies are pretty much my favorite dessert. And I like over the top like these, Peanut Butter Stuffed Brownies. Or just regular Homemade Brownies. I am equal opportunity when it comes to brownies!

There are over 30 brownie recipes here on the blog, so there is no shortage of options.

I can’t remember where I saw this recipe first, but as soon as I saw the picture, I knew I had to make it. Maybe it was shared on Facebook, I don’t remember. But one thing I know, is Ina Garten knows how to bake. Her Outrageous Brownies are amazing, so I knew this gooey brownie pie would be too.

What’s In Brownie Pie

  • Butter
  • Chocolate Chips
  • Eggs
  • Sugar
  • Vanilla
  • All-Purpose Flour
  • Baking Powder
  • Salt

Brownie Toppings

I love Chocolate Frosting on traditional brownies, it is how I grew up eating them and it makes them extra delicious.

But this brownie pie is so rich that just a drizzle of Hot Fudge Sauce is all you need! You can use your favorite store bought kind if you want, or my recipe comes together in just minutes and is so rich and good.

How to Make Brownie Pie

This has most of the same ingredients traditional brownies do, but the ratios are a little different, so it is extra fudgy and that crackly top is perfect!

  1. Start by melting the butter and chocolate together until it is nice and smooth.  Cool this slightly so it doesn’t scramble the eggs when you mix it all together. 
  2. Separately beat the eggs, sugar and vanilla for about 3 minutes until it is super light and fluffy.  
  3. Pour the cooled chocolate in and mix until it is combined. 
  4. Fold in the flour, baking powder and salt until it is just combined.  Then add in the rest of the chocolate.
  5. Pour into a prepared spring form pan to bake.  You can use a pie plate or cake pan if you don’t have one, but you will only use about 3/4 of the batter.  This does rise in the oven, and the sides of a spring form pan keep it in place. 
  6. Once it has puffed up and a tester comes out clean it is done.  Let it cool before slicing.  
  7. To serve top with chocolate sauce.

The brownie pie puffs up as it bakes, and the tops gets crackly and delicious. But the inside stays gooey, rich, and super chocolatey. I wanted mine to stay all chocolate, but you could mix in walnuts if that is more your thing. I am not a fan of nuts in desserts, so I skipped that part.

Baking Pan

The recipe calls for a 9-inch spring form pan. This is what gets the tall sides. There is too much batter to just use a regular pie plate. If that is all you have, just use 3/4 of the batter so it doesn’t over flow and make a mess in your oven.

If you have a chocolate lover in your life, this is the dessert to make for them.  It is really easy to make, with just a few minutes of work and ingredients you probably have in your kitchen already, you can have this in the oven. 

Perfect when for birthdays, special desserts at home, or just because those chocolate cravings strike!

If using a pie plate, I would use about 3/4 of the batter, otherwise it will be too full.
