This so-called “impossible” gluten free coconut pie is another of our favorite family recipes. It really is embarrassingly easy, and now that I make it gluten free and dairy free too, it seems so easy and delicious that it must be impossible … but I promise that it isn’t!
We typically serve this pie at Easter, which only reminds us of how much we love the recipe, thereby causing us to crave it every month thereafter, until we are ultimately distracted by some other series of desserts (often, not until Christmas cookies!), only to revisit the recipe a few short months later, and to be reminded of how much we love it … which makes us want to make it again … anyway, you get the picture.
It truly is one of my springtime favorites because it is so quick and easy – I mean, what could be easier than a crustless pie?
And don’t for a minute think that you can’t enjoy a custard pie because you avoid dairy; with this recipe, you have no such worries!
Wonderful hot out of the oven, cold, or even room temperature, I recommend doubling the recipe, because one pie is never enough! Maybe make one pie in a large dish and several smaller ramekins or mugs for portion control? Of course, you could use larger ramekins, depending on how much control you think you need!Print
Preheat oven to 350ºF.
Pour coconut into a small bowl. Add milk to soak, and set aside for at least 10 minutes.
Beat eggs and sugar then add all the other ingredients slowly.
Add the soaked coconut and pour into an oiled pie plate or 4–6 ramekins or coffee cups.
This pie rises when cooking, then shrinks as it cools; therefore, use caution not to overfill the pans. I recommend leaving at least an inch clearance to allow for the pie to rise. Consequently, you may find that you have extra pie batter and need to use an additional baking pan.
Bake for 50–60 minutes (approximately 30–40 minutes for ramekins), or until the edges are lightly browned and the middle is no longer jiggly. Turn off oven and open oven door, allowing pie to cool slowly to prevent cracking.
(See how easy that was?!)
