Very nice texture and great flavor and I only used 3/4 cup sugar. It was like key lime and coconut pie mixed together.
To save calories I baked as a custard and it was great. I also used lite evaporated milk for coconut milk.
My family loves this recipe! Besides that it is so easy to make-all you do is put it in the oven. With most coconut pies you have to stand guard over the pudding mixture stirring constantly. I bake mine for 50 minutes and then I start checking on it. I buy coconut milk that says "All Natural" and when you look at the ingredient list there is no mention of sugar.
I made this pie yesterday and I have to say that other than it being a tad bit too sweet, it was really good!. I loved the taste of the buttermilk in the pie and the texture was wonderful.....custardy but firm. Next time I make it I will lessen the amout of sugar to 1 1/4 cups but otherwise everything will stay the same. Thanks!
Partially my own fault. Where do you egt unsweetened coconut flakes & milk? I should have known to cut back on the sugar. It was way too sweet. But the potential is there & will be super yummy next time, I'm sure!
I am giving this pie a 5 for taste.... it was really good. I used key limes and the combination was wonderful. I had trouble getting a clean slice and I am not sure if that is typical of buttermilk pies as this is the first one I have ever made. I cooked it for 55 minutes and let it cool for two hours and then put it in the fridge for three hours. It was a really good tasting pie....just not a very pretty one once it was cut.
