Coconut Pie..the easy way.


This is one easy coconut pie to make! I will take coconut pie most any way I get it. The filling is custard like with toasty coconut..what can I say but it's delicious!

  • 4 eggs
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 2 cups milk..I used skim and it turned out fine
  • 1 1/2 cups coconut..flaked is my favorite but shredded is fine.
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  1. Combine the ingredients in order given, whisking to combine thoroughly.
  2. Pour into a greased 10" pie pan, I used my glass pie pan.
  3. Bake at 350ยบ for 45 to 50 minutes or until golden brown. The center will still be a bit jiggly.
  4. Cool completely on a cooling rack. I couldn't wait and tasted it while still warm..so good.
  5. I served the pie with whipped cream and a sprinkling of toasted coconut.

  1. Oh, my kind of pie. I like to make custard pies without the crust and I am especially fond of coconut. It looks so delicious!

  2. This used to be my grandfather's favorite pie. I don't think I have had one since he died 22 years ago. I may have to make one in hos memory!

  3. So, if I look at the recipe correctly there is no pie crust? You can tell I am not an avid baker!

    Thanks

    1. A bit of crust forms in the bottom as it bakes, it is as simple as that!

  4. Any suggestions on the kind of flour I could use to make this gluten free for my daughter?

    1. For thickening gravies, sauces or baked puddings I have found that the following mix works really well... one part sweet rice flour to 3 parts cornstarch.

    2. Could you use coconut flour in place of regular flour?

    3. I guess the only way to know is to try it.

  6. Just for a twist, why don't you use coconut oil and coconut milk instead of the butter and milk. Would likely be very very tastey.

  7. This sounds just like a pie my Mother used to make - it was called impossible pie.

  8. I make this pie gluten free by using Pamela's all purpose mix in place of the flour. Any gluten free flour blend should work.

  9. Should I use unsweetened or sweetened coconut?
    Thanks.

    1. But if you use sweetened coconut you can reduce the amount of sugar by half (I usually reduce it even more).

  11. I've made this pie several times and really enjoy it! It does the trick when I'm really craving a coconut cream pie but it's too humid to make. :)

  12. Oh yum - that takes me back to something similar that my Mom used to make. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

  13. I made it yesterday! My husband said it his perfect dessert. I added mini chocolate chips to the mix before baking and served the pie with fresh raspberries and whipping cream on top. Five star!!!

  16. It's in the oven right now :)
    This was one of the very rare times when I already had on hand everything a recipe calls for...even my Grammy's 10" glass pie dish! Usually I use the smaller ones, so it's nice that the big one is getting a turn. And the filling went right up to the top! Can't wait to see the results. See? Who am I kidding? I can't wait to taste the results! ;)

  17. This tasted more like a clafouti. Actually, reminded me of a coconut omelet. Did not enjoy it at all.
