|Vegan Chocolate Pudding Pie|
My original plan for Thanksgiving was to make a vegan pumpkin pie. But my boyfriend's mother informed me that she'd be bringing a pumpkin roll to dinner, and we just couldn't have two pumpkin desserts. So then I decided to make a vegan sour cream coffee cake that I've made multiple times and everyone loves and an experimental vegan pudding pie.
Have you ever made pudding from scratch? It's really, really hard to do. It took me two attempts to make the pudding for this pie. I burned the first batch (and nearly burned down my kitchen! looks like I'll be needing a new saucepan from Santa, too) and used a cooking technique that my boyfriend's home ec teaching mother would definitely frown upon. I needed to whisk my pudding mixture, and since my hand whisking didn't work the first time, I used my mixer in the pan on the stove. Dangerous, I know. But it seemed to work.
