Chocolate Velvet Pie

Sometimes the old school recipes can't be beaten. I don't know where this one came from, except I saw it on Simple Savings. It is decadent and reminiscent of all those good things like chocolate self-saucing pudding.
I hope you like it.
Chocolate Velvet Pie
1/2 Cup plain flour
3 Tbs Cocoa
1 Cup shredded coconut
1 Cup Sugar
1 Cup Cream (I didn't say it was healthy!)
1 Cup Milk
4 eggs, lightly beaten
100g butter, melted
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.
Mix all the ingredients thoroughly and pour into a greased 25 cm pie dish. Bake for 1 hour, and let stand for at least 10 minutes before eating. Serve with cream or icecream.

Kaz, do you think that you could make this in advance and eat it cold? Or is it one of those things you really have to serve straight away... I was thinking I could maybe take it to a picnic we are going to on Saturday

Hi Liz,

You can definitely eat it cold! It did sink a little after it cooled - but I think that's because I took it out of the oven a little early.
It's not a slice though - you'd need plates for it.

Yum! This looks divinely delicious.I suppose it's not really getting tooooo hot to have the oven on up here :)

WE had this yesterday and it was great. I didn't havea cup of cream (more like 1/3 cup) so I just made sure the milk and cream combined made 2 cups, and I thought we'd run out of butter so put vegetable oil in instead and it was still great!
