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.

  1. Instead of nutmeg I added lemon flavoring, yellow food coloring, and blueberries.

  2. Seems like I may won’t found out for definite sure until tomorrow at work 🙁 However, I saw my co-worker posted my pie on his Instagram page and loved it–so all good!

    Also, I have horrible luck with blenders–I somehow break them–I mixed up my pie with a hand mixer.

  3. Well, I got the pie made. Although I had a couple of adventures along the way from realizing I thought I had a glass pie pan and I really didn’t, to almost using alot more butter than I should 🙂 I did add 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon to the filling. The co-worker liked the looks of it, as he took it home. I await his verdict.

  4. Butter–so glad I found this! I am making this for the first time tonight. A co-worker asked I made egg pie,after I told him I LOVE doing peach pie–he didn’t WANT that. So this is out of my wheelhouse–looks good and easy. I’ll be back to tell you how it goes… 🙂

  5. Hi Kirbie did you cool this at room temperature before you consumed it? Or did you cool it in the fridge?

  6. Butter instead of margarine is brilliant!

  7. Do u need to melt butter first ? can use straight from the fridge or at room temperature..Thanks in advance..I’m very keen on it!

  8. Huh, this sounds so interesting! I, too, would probably add a few additional spices to spruce it up, it does sound a bit plain. But I’m totally curious about the magic crust, I want to try it.

    • I really enjoyed it. It tasted like your basic custard pie. Except my pie crust stuck to the bottom. But I think that was mainly my own fault for not greasing it enough first.
