12 Months 12 Cakes: Coconut Pie

Our September choice was...............

this Old Fashioned Recipe for Coconut Cream Pie

I had never cooked a pudding from scratch. Although the recipe worked really well, I did not cook it on low heat. The mixture was heating so slowly that I would have been cooking it for hours. I set the oven at 3, then 4 and then 5. I did stir the pudding all the time so all was fine.


The pie was so wonderfully delicious! While making this wonderful pie, I followed the recipe step by step. I used a graham pie crust. However, I decided to cut down on calories and did not put a whipped cream topping layer on the pie. I sprayed it with some whipped cream instead.

The results - an exquisite dessert! Both of us like vanilla pudding based desserts and that recipe is a certainly a keeper.

Garlic and Butter Dinner Bread

Goes well with fried fish or pork chop dinner. Recipe here.

12 Months 12 Cakes: Blueberry Cake

The blueberry cake, which I made in August, was light and tasty. I used canned fruit instead of fresh ones, but the result was still great. Certainly, I will make it again, maybe with some other kind of fruit, though.

The original recipe comes from Alexandra's Kitchen. No, not mine, but Tobo liked it as well, so it will be made in our kitchen now and then.
