I recently bought the Hershey’s Kitchen Baking Magazine at my local supermarket, and while browsing through it I stumbled upon the “Innkeeper Pie”. The title of this pie does not give you much insight as to what it actually is, so considering that I made a few modifications to the recipe along the way, I renamed to “a Chocolate Walnut Pie”.
I’ve never been to a Bed and Breakfast, but I’ve heard that the Innkeeper’s food is supposed to be unreal. The recipe seemed easy enough, and I was in the mood to try something new, so I went with it.
This pie is like nothing I have ever baked before and I am glad to report that I am VERY happy with the way it turned out! I was a little skeptic as to how the chcolate layer would sink to the bottom, and how the cake layer would form in the middle, but somehow it all worked out just fine.
I would highly suggest this recipe if you want to wow your guests with a 3 layer dessert that looks complicated, but is actually quite simple. I am giving you a forewarning though-this is NOT a light dessert. It is rich and decadent, and definitely the kind of dessert that is fit for a holiday or special occasion. Enjoy!
