The first time I made this I tried it when it was still warm & thought it was just eh. But the next day it was sooooo good. I was craving it today so I whipped up a half batch. I used 1 egg and added a ripe banana to the mix. It was very good too. I haven't tried it with the coconut yet.
I made this for my picky father. He ate so much of it and he's not a big on sweets eater. Him and my mom practically fought over the last piece.
My mother has made this custard pie for years. It is soooooo good :D Best warm, but I gladly eat if cold as well LOL
This was very good. I left out the coconut. It needed an hour in the oven before it was completely set, and the crust that formed around the sides was very nice. I also baked this in a square pyrex dish. My husband couldn't get enough!! Thanks!
We really enjoyed this. I can't get vanilla where I live, so I had to make it without. I though it might be too bland, but although it was very mild, it was delicious. This will definitely be a regular around here...
I love this dessert, and so do my friends and family! People always ask for the recipe; although the recipe I use is a slight variation of the one on this site. I use 4 eggs instead of 3, and I sprinkle brown sugar on the top instead of coconut (since my family doesn't like coconut). It gives kind of a creme brulee effect. Additionally, I serve it warm. It is a yummy comfort food and sooo simple!
I'm not big on coconut but my DH loves it. I made this one evening, went to bed and there was nothing left but crumbs in the morning. I even caught the cat licking off DH's pie plate. I think that says it all! :)
