Coconut Custard Pie & A New Sponsor

Hello, hello, hello!! I have not blogged in forever! Sorry about that. We've been having good weather and I've been spending lots of time outside enjoying the heat. Sadly we don't get enough warm days here in Calgary. Guess that's the price you pay when you live in beautiful Canada.

Anyhoo, I'm back today to share a very tasty summertime pie - Coconut Custard Pie. It is delish! Not only is this pie delicious it's quick to throw together and the best part, wait for it.... it makes its own crust!! No crust making skills are required to bake this pie. It magically separates into three distinct layers while it's baking. Very cool!

Coconut Custard Pie
adapted from:


2 cups milk
1/3 cup melted butter
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup coconut
3 eggs
1/2 cup flour
2 teaspoons vanilla
dash of salt

  • Melt butter then add all ingredients into mixing bowl. 
  • Mix well. 
  • Pour into greased 9" pie plate. (The pie plate will be very full. I set mine on a baking sheet, just in case. I was happy I did, it oozed down the sides.) 
  • Bake 50 - 60 minutes @ 350F degrees. I baked mine for about an hour and 10 mins. I waited until the entire pie puffed and turned a golden brown. Make sure you keep checking it! 
  • Enjoy the pie warm or cold! It's quite tasty both ways. And a little dollop of fresh whipped cream wouldn't hurt.   
** As your pie cools it will deflate. Don't freak out, that is perfectly normal!

That is it! It couldn't be easier. This is the perfect pie to take to a BBQ. People will think you spent all day making it. It'll be our little secret that it only took you 5 minutes to throw together.  ; ) 

Now a little about my new sponsor - RestoreMyPix
I had mentioned awhile back that my hubby's position at work had been abolished and he was offered a severance package, which he took. Ever since he's been working on getting his own business started. Well after weeks and weeks of computer work his site is finally up and running. RestoreMyPix is your one stop shop for all you digital photo needs! Need those old family photos restored to better than original condition, or those old family slides scanned so they're in digital format? Thinking of having a birth announcement or family holiday card made? Why not have one custom created just for you! Stop by and check it out.  =)
