My Chocolate Pie

*Filling*

5 Tablespoons of cocoa

1 cup sugar

5 Tablespoons flour

1 Tablespoon instant coffee

dash of salt

1 1/2 cups of milk

2 egg yolks slightly beaten

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

1 Tablespoon of butter

Combine all ingredients EXCEPT vanilla and butter in a medium saucepan with a whisk. Over medium heat cook until good and thick and make sure you keep whisking while it cooking. When it’s thickened take it off the burner and whisk in the butter and vanilla. Pour into a cooked pie crust.

The original recipe I found was:
