Posted in the Howards Grove Forum

This is an unusual request for Topix, but years ago we had dinner at what was then Hoffman's At Riverdale - a restaurant on the south side of the city.
I ate the best piece of chocolate chiffon pie I have ever tasted and have been looking for the recipe for years.
If anyone has the recipe, or knows where I can find it I would certainly appreciate it.

Most of the folks who worked there and might have the recipe are gone (died). I don't think any of the Hoffman's Riverdale recipes were ever published. Their coleslaw was awesome, too.

I grew up in Sheboygan. I have a recipe for Riverdale Chocolate pie that is 50 years old and not very 'complete'- as were most of my Mom's recipes. Here is what is on my recipe card: 1 egg, vanilla, 2/3 C sugar, 2/3 C milk, 1 pkg Knox gelatin in 1/4 C water, 3 squares Baker's Chocolate, salt. Cream together. Cook in double boiler until thickens. Take 2/3 C evaporated milk and chill in freezing compartment. Beat stiff. Fold in choc. mixture. Beat egg white and fold in. Put in chocolate cookie crust and chill. Serve with whipped cream.
When I made this recently, I used unsweetened baking chocolate because that is the only kind I can remember my Mom had in the cupboard. I used 1 tsp vanilla and added it AFTER I took it off of the stove. I used 1/4 t salt. Not sure what "cream together" means before putting it in double boiler, so I chopped up the chocolate and put everything in double boiler. Obviously I cooled the chocolate mixture before adding the whipped evaporated milk and whipped egg white. Good luck and have fun.
