Very simple pie recipe that magically turns out to have three layers; a base, a custard type filling, and a coconut topping. Try it and see for yourself.
- 125 g butter, softened
- 1⁄2 cup plain flour
- 2 cups milk
- 1 cup caster sugar
- 2 teaspoons vanilla essence
- 1 cup desiccated coconut
- 4 eggs
- Place all the ingredients in a bowl.
- Beat until mixed well.
- Pour into a greased flan dish.
- Bake for about one hour at 175 degrees Celsius (325 degrees Fahrenheit).
- When baked it will surprisingly have a base, a custard centre, and a coconut topping.
I'm sitting here eating Magical Pie while I write this review. And I have to say I'm really really impressed with how it turned out! What a great recipe. Its not too sweet and I love how the top goes all crispy and golden. Thanks for the recipe Susie T!
This pie is great as is,but I couldnt stop myself from playing around with it.Try adding 1/4 cup cocoa and a 1/2 cup (or more) of chopped almonds and a dash of almond extract.Almost like a fudgy almond joy.The coconut could be eliminated all together,but then I would up the almonds.I also did cocoa with a cup of peanut butter and some chopped peanuts,which was good too.Planning to try using brown sugar and pecans or walnuts.....
This sounds really interesting, but is there anything anyone can think of that could be used instead of coconut?
