Ok, ok, I have to admit it... I've had my first Hummingbird failure!
After the success and yumminess of the Coconut cake that I made earlier this year (http://hummingbirdyear.blogspot.com/2011/05/week-of-cake-take-one.html), I had been looking forward to trying out the Coconut Pie for ages.
Unfortunately, this time the custard element caught me out.
All went well with the pastry. I think I've got quite a knack to making good pastry after my old nan taught me when I was a wee nipper, so that bit was a doddle.
I even had enough left over to make a separate heart-shaped casing. I was doing well... or so I thought...
I got to the coconut custard stage and was starting to juggle things a bit. I had to whisk until I got a custard-y consistency. And there's my failing... I guess I just like my custard less thick than the Hummingbird!
Oh well, I'll live and learn... the coconut custard did taste really good though!
