Chocolate & Coconut Custard Pie
Coconut Cream Pie
Actually, another good way to finish up my dry coconut I still had in stock. This time I looked for a recipe at MarthaStewart.com and came through a recipe called " Coconut Cream Pie "
The recipe is quite simple, because instead of making a normal cream custard using milk, you'll be using coconut milk. And I added some sliced bananas on top, simply to garnish the pie.
Anyway, here's the recipe:
1 large whole egg, lightly beaten, plus 4 large egg yolks
3 cups canned unsweetened coconut milk
2/3 cup granulated sugar
5 tablespoons cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 ounces semisweet chocolate
*1 cup heavy cream
*1/4 cup confectioners’ sugar
As for the crust, you can use any tart crust or pastry crust recipe at hand OR you can refer to this recipe which is the original crust used for this recipe:
How to make:
1. In a pan, mix coconut milk with sugar, salt and cornstarch. Bring to a simmer (but do not boil) for 3-4mins.
2. In a clean bowl, beat the egg and egg yolks. Add in the hot milk mixture. Strain into a a clean saucepan, and cook over medium-high heat until it starts to thicken. Continously whisk to avoid any lumps from forming. ( about 2-3 mins )
3. Place custard in a bowl with an ice bath and cover with cling film, make sure it touches the surface of the custard to avoid skin from forming.
4. Melt the semisweet chocolate, and smooth over the pie crust ( pre-baked pie crust ). Place the chilled custard filling onto the pie crust. Use an offset spatula or any spatula would do as well, and evenly cover up the whole crust.
5. In a mixer bowl, combine heavy cream and conf. sugar and beat until soft peaks form. Spread over custard, garnish with leftover coconut flakes. Chill for a few hours at least, before serving.
* The cocount originally called for coconut curls, in which I didn't have so I used coconut flakes instead. And I also put on some sliced bananas on top, just to garnish, thinking that coconut-banan-chocolate combination might just taste good, and IT DID!
This recipe is a great dessert, a good change from the normal custard pie. A must try
Next, I'm gonna try making another coconut pie, but with a taste of lemon in it!
