Vegan Chocolate Plum Pie. The simplest, ooziest, stickiest, sexiest and most delicious fruity pie you will make this Autumn. Topped with chocolate? Oh my!
Anyone for a slice of Chocolate Plum Pie? Or entire pie, perhaps? Yes?
Then this is the pie for you. This is the most delicious, stickiest, ooziest and fruity sweetest pie I have ever tasted. Topped with chocolate? Whoever thought of that should have a place in heaven! Luckily, we don’t have to go to heaven to have a piece of it on this beautiful, A
Because the Autumn is coming. Slowly but steadily it
For me, this is the most beautiful time of the year. Still kind of summery and barefoot, but with a nice sweater in the evening. And produce, oh my. The produce! I won’t make this a fruit and vegetable timetable lesson but oh my! Are you impatient to start baking with pumpkins as much as I am?
You may notice that the crust recipe is almost identical as one from Summer Fruit Crumble Bars. Well, if it works, why reinvent hot water, right? It’s crispy, flaky, easy to make and most of all, serves a great purpose both in thin or thicker versions, like in this pie crust.

Therefore, this Vegan Chocolate Plum Pie was a perfect choice. It belongs to my friend blogger Maja Babić from Provereni recepti blog. I veganized the crust, though, and made a filling a bit differently, but it’s still a legit Maja’s recipe!
Maja writes in Serbian, where she lives, and has a great collection of all the recipes you can imagine, all written in very precise, almost scientific way and explanations.
This Vegan Chocolate Plum Pie’s crust is firm just enough to hold its precious filling, not to sweet and crispy. Plum filling is oozingly and stretchy (those are not proper words but I don’t care, it’s my Cringlish day 😉 ), fruity sweet and zingy, like some new and crazy plum jam you never tasted before. And chocolate on top? What’s more to say about the chocolate on top rather than it’s the best topping on any cake?
And some fruit and nuts on top of it, of course.
Have I convinced you to try it? I think I did!
