Almost Billy Miner Pie Recipe

Almost Billy Miner Pie isn't the authentic dish served up by the Keg restaurant chain, but its a good facsimile. It's so delicious you won't care that its not the real thing.

Trivia:Billy Miner was a Canadian train robber.

Tip: For best results, always use good quality chocolate. It can be purchased online if none is available locally.

Almost Billy Miner Pie Recipe

Cake Ingredients

1 chocolate graham wafer pie crust, purchased or made at home
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup sugar
1 square of unsweetened chocolate
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 tablespoons instant coffee (the powder before mixing with water)
2 eggs
1/2 cup whipping cream
caramel sauce


Almost Billy Miner Pie is chilled in the refrigerated, not cooked.

Cream the butter and sugar together, mixing very well. If you need a mixer, this Factory-Reconditioned KitchenAid RRK150CV Artisan Series 5-Quart Mixer is an exceptionally good deal.

Melt the chocolate and then add it to the creamed butter/sugar. Mix, then add the vanilla and the coffee grains. Add the eggs, one at a time. Beat very well, and continue beating for about five minutes. Mixture should be very light.

Refrigerate until set. This could require an overnight chilling.

When you are ready to serve your dessert, garnish with whipped cream, caramel sauce and nuts.

Almost Billy Miner Pie is so good you may cut back on your visits to the Keg!
