I couldn't get my camera in quick enough to get a picture, but the following was gobbled last night:

Fudge Pie (made from Paula Dean's Old Fashioned Fudge Pie recipe) - 2 oz semi sweet chocolate melted down with a stick of butter.  Add a cup of sugar, two eggs.  Beat well, pour into pie crust (I used frozen, because I was also making up ice cream - see below) and bake at 375 for about 30 minutes (Paula's recipe calls for 25, but it was a gooey mess after 25, less gooey but still awesome at 30.)

Topped with Banana Bread Ice Cream:  In a blender, puree four ripe bananas with a sploosh of lemon juice.  Add simple syrup (3/4 cup brown sugar with 3/4 cup water, melt sugar).  Add teaspoon cinnamon, nutmeg, pinch salt (I always use freshly grated nutmeg - the flavor seems better), 1/4 tsp vanilla, 1 cup whipping cream.  Blend it all up again.  Pour into ice cream maker (watch it - this gets thick in a hurry, and after 45 minutes it stopped churning).  While it's churning, mix up 1 cup brown sugar, another tablespoon of cinnamon, nutmeg, 1 teaspoon of ginger, crushed walnuts, and a teaspoon of molasses.  Fold into finished ice cream (for a totally rocking swirl).

Serve ice cream over the fudge cake for extra awesomeness.

Words cannot express how good the ice cream sounds! If only I can do it without an ice cream maker :(

You totally can, just with more work. When it gets to the point of "put it in the ice cream maker", instead put it into a coffee can (with a lid) that is smaller (like the Cafe Du Monde cans you can get at some grocery stores here in Texas). Fill a larger coffee (also with a lid) can with rock salt and crushed ice, put the smaller can inside. Roll it around for 45 minutes (you can do this between your legs while watching TV, or have kids chase it around).

I saw that pie recipe and thought "Ah! At last, something to use up the last two ounces of Scharffen Berger!". Delectable, although next time I'll make it in a smaller diameter pie tin, as it was a little thinner than I anticipated. Thanks!
