Recently my husband Dave had a luscious custardy-coconutty dessert at a restaurant that reminded me of a recipe I hadn’t made in a LONG time. So . . . I dug it out on Saturday, much to his delight! It’s super-easy and makes the house smell heavenly. As it bakes, the ingredients form three layers—a soft “crust,” a creamy filling, and a crunchy topping. When I first started making this I didn’t own a blender so I just used a regular mixer, which works just fine. But . . . the blender is even quicker! ♥ UPDATE: Click here for a gluten-free, lactose-free version of this recipe from Awesome Sauce & Asshattery!
1. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9-inch glass cake or pie pan.
2. Whirl the following in the blender:
- 2 cups milk
- 4 eggs
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 2 tablespoons butter (cut into small bits)
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
3. Pour the mixture into the pan. Sprinkle 2 cups of sweetened coconut flakes over the top.
4. Bake for 55 minutes or until set. Cool on a wire rack.
I love anything with coconut-have you ever tried putting chocolate chips in the mix?
No, I haven’t . . . but that sounds HEAVENLY! 🙂

Thank you! Even though I don’t cook as much any more, I love these cookbooks. Each one has a story behind it! 🙂
You’re welcome, Katherine! It’s worth keeping because of the story behind them. Be Blessed, Mtetar
You had me at ‘blender’…minimum effort!
I agree!!! 🙂
Yum! What deliciousness!
It IS . . . hope you get to try it sometime! 🙂
Looks amazing and so simple to make!
I also like that all the ingredients are ones I normally have in the kitchen, so I can whip it up anytime now that I’ve remembered it! 🙂
OMG it does sound simple and not too many ingredients which some recipes can just get crazy with! Not to mention, I love coconut, unfortunately hubby and daughter don’t. But – I would be great for a party or something. Will have to try this one out! Thanks for posting!
That’s a good idea . . . to make it for a party or potluck . . . then you can try a piece and share the rest! 🙂
There’s something about coconut that always reminds of me of summer. This looks delicious, simple to make, and yet seems so different than the usual desserts in my rotation. Thanks for sharing!
I agree about coconut and summer! I used to make macaroons, too . . . now where is THAT recipe??? 🙂

Oh, that makes me happy that you’re trying the recipes! I really don’t cook that much anymore since we’re empty nesters, but I still enjoy it when I do! 🙂
Love coconut and I have a blender! This will be made at my house, so simple. Thanks for sharing this. ~Vickie
Enjoy, Vickie! I’d forgotten how easy it is to whip things up in the blender! 🙂
Thank you! I had forgotten about this too!
Isn’t it funny how our recipes slide back into the past sometimes? But making them again is like a new discovery! 🙂
This sounds like my kind of dessert — yummy and easy. THANKS.
My two favorite cooking terms, too–yummy and easy! 🙂
my husband asked if i could please make this (coconut cream pie is his favorite)
I hope he loves it!!! (And it’s DEFINITELY easier than “real” coconut pie!) 🙂
Love me some coconut…and this sounds and looks like pure heaven!
Can’t wait to try it.
I hope you love it! I’ll definitely be keeping this recipe handy so I won’t forget about it again! 🙂

It really does take only a few minutes to put together, and then you get that wonderful aroma . . . and then it’s tasting time! 🙂
Ooh that looks lovely, I’ll have to try it.

I’ve found out that the world has lots of coconut-lovers! 🙂 You’re very welcome, Ingrid! 🙂

I love coconut anything, so I will be trying this recipe soon! I look forward to your blog & reading your storys & what’s going on in your life dear friend!! “Keep’em coming” 🙂
That makes my day, Kay! You’re the best!!! 🙂
Mmmm! I LOVE anything with coconut in it. This sounds heavenly! 🙂
It’s definitely a keeper, especially when your sweet tooth strikes and you want something easy to make! 🙂
yummmmmmy, only thing I was wondering is could I sub in non sweetened coconut or freshly shaved coconut?? we have them everywhere here……..do you think it would change how the recipe turned out taste wise???
I think it would taste divine! (Alas . . . no coconuts growing in Kansas USA!) 🙂
LOL, I think it would be illegal from me to send you some too LOL
I love the simplicity of this recipe and it looks divine!
I hope you’ll get a chance to try it, Victoria! 🙂
I will make a point of doing so! 🙂 It looks great and my husband is a coconut nut! Thanks for sharing the recipe.
I must have a go at that, sounds so easy to make and looks yummy. Problem is only I will eat it, I have fussy kids who won’t try anything that looks ‘different’. Linda x
Hmmm . . . eating it yourself might be a good thing!!! 🙂
Not good though if I’m trying to lose weight for my hols, without much success as I can’t get myself motivated. lol. Lx
I’m going to make this today~ I was just having a sweet craving moment and this will be perfect for tonight’s dessert! mmmmmm…
Yay! I hope you love it as much as we do! 🙂
This looks so easy and fast and delicious! I copied it and made another copy for my mother. Can’t wait to make this. 🙂
I hope you enjoy it as much as we do, Kim! (And your mom, too!) 🙂
And SO easy!!! 🙂
This looks great and safe for me to eat with my diet I shall have to try this x
Yay! I hope you love it! 🙂
Made this last night, really nice and if I can make something with out burning or throwing it out, it has to be a good recipe.
My philosophy exactly . . . especially since I’ve burned and/or thrown out more than one new recipe I’ve tried the past couple of weeks! 🙂 Glad you enjoyed the coconut pie! 🙂
