When we had our Bed and Breakfast on the go, I would make a dessert as well. I did this for about the first 5 years in our 12 year stint. Then, for whatever reason, couldn’t locate the recipe. Of all pies, this is MY favourite, second would be pecan pie. Oh yeah….I found it!
- 2 cups milk
- 1 cup flaked coconut
- 4 eggs
- 1 tsp.pure vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup flour
- 6 tbsp. butter-melted
- 3/4 cup sugar
- zest from two limes
Butter and flour 10 inch pie plate. Place all the ingredients, except the lime zest, in a bowl and beat until all is mixed well and the colour is a pale yellow.
pour into the pie plate and sprinkle the lime zest over the top.
Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 45-60 minutes. This pie makes its own crust and when served barely warm is magnificent. Yummmmmm.
