One of the most popular desserts at the Loveless Cafe in Nashville, Tennessee, is this exceptionally creamy and sweet “fudge pie.” My daughter had a slice when she was traveling through the South on business, and had to call me log distance just to tell me how good it was. The pie gets its richness from using melted chocolate rather than cocoa powder. The result is an incredibly muddy fudgy pie, which you can top with whipped cream and drizzle with chocolate sauce. The muddy description in its title is perhaps used to describe the pie's dark, rich color, much like the dark mud from the Mississippi River, as it is thought that this type of pie recipe, or Mississippi Mud Pie, was named after the authentic Mississippi Mud Cake or Pie. This recipe is adapted from "Desserts From the Famous Loveless Cafe" by Alisa Huntsman (Artisan Books), 2011.
