Magic Custard Pie
I was immediately intrigued when I saw the title of this recipe.
It’s a custard pie that takes only minutes to assemble. You know how I love my easy recipes.
The magic comes when it’s baking. To make the recipe, you simply throw a bunch of ingredients into a blender. Then you put it in a pie pan and bake it. While it’s baking, the flour from the ingredients sinks to a bottom, separates from the custard and creates a pie crust. So when it’s done, the pie magically has a crust.
There’s actually quite a few versions of this recipe currently floating across the web. Some versions end up with a three layer cake, but it takes more steps to get the three layers.
I chose to do this 2 layer version because it was so darn easy. It came out just as promised.
It was a little difficult getting the crust layer off of the pan, so I definitely recommend making sure your pie pan is well greased. Next time I might add some coconut flakes, a dash of cinnamon and nutmeg, to spruce it up because it is a little plain. But the recipe is definitely a keeper for when you need to make a quickie dessert.
You can find the recipe here. My only change was that I didn’t have margarine, so I used butter in place of margarine.
