Blender Coconut Pie

Standard

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.

Mmmm . . . my favorite quick breakfast!  A few months ago I posted this Microwave Coffee Cup Scramble and 3,2,1 Cake in Not Just a Coffee Cup.  Later, I shared a few other mini-serving ideas in More Coffee Cup Recipes.  Here are some new ones I’ve been collecting from other bloggers. Someday I want to try them all!  But . . . (DESSERT ALERT! 🙂 ) . . . if your current “chic chick” resolution is losing a few pounds (mine is!) you might want to bookmark this post for later! ♥
