The first few years operating a B & B, I always added a little dessert (thought we needed the 5th course), and this was by far the most favoured.
- 4 eggs
- 2 cups milk
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1/4 cup melted butter
- 1 cup flaked coconut
- 1 tsp. pure vanilla
- 1/2 tsp. baking powder
- pinch of salt
- zest from one orange
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine all the ingredients and beat until well mixed. Pour into a buttered pie plate (10″) and bake for 60 minutes.
When serving, drizzle with warm maple syrup.
The center will still be soft and when cooled the “crust” will be set and the custard filling is bloomin’ awsome.
I love this pie and found it almost addictive. So did everyone else. This was one pie that was never thrown out.
