Weekend Cooking: Coconut Custard Pie

Or should I say Weekend Baking? This weekend we won't be baking, but last weekend Nick and I decided that after the hectic holidays, we want to pick up our fairly newly found habit of baking something in the weekend. We won't do this every weekend because we don't want it to become an obligation. But we will do so on a regular base.

I picked out 5 recipes from my Pinterest board and Nick made the final choice for this coconut custard pie.


It was funny too. I never made a recipe before where you had to beat egg whites because I was quite scared that it would fail, but in this case the egg whites were only used to prevent the bottom from going soggy, so I thought I gave it a go. It worked out perfectly and Nick was all amazed by the changing progress of the egg whites. It was really adorable, and one of my best memories of us together in the kitchen.


The pie could have used some sort of topping, but because we baked on a Sunday, I couldn't go to the store and buy it. But the end result tasted great and the recipe is easy! Go and check it out: Lizzie's Coconut Custard Pie.

  1. Nice! What sort of topping would you have used? I can't think of anything. Thanks for the recipe, I may use it for my book group next week - they think I'm quite the baker! Little do they know I get my recipes tried and tested from the internet. Well, I guess they do know. :-)

  10. i haven't had coconut custard pie in ages. i do like the idea of baking together, though it would be most fun with my daughter. She is keen right now to learn more about cooking before she heads to university in a year and a half.

  12. This. Looks. Amazing. I've only beat egg whites for souffles before, but this looks simpler.
