Lemon Cake Pie Recipe


1 10-inch pie crust, unbaked
1 cup white sugar
1 cup milk
¾ cup shredded coconut
¼ cup butter, melted
¼ cup lemon juice
2 large eggs, separated
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 lemon, zested
1 ½ cups whipped cream

 Step 1
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Press the pie crust into a pie plate.

 Step 2
Mix sugar, milk, coconut, butter, lemon juice, egg yolks, flour, and lemon zest together in a bowl. Beat egg whites in a separate bowl using an electric mixer until stiff peaks form. Lift your beater or whisk straight up: the egg whites will form sharp peaks. Fold lemon mixture into egg whites; pour into pie crust. Loosely cover the crust with aluminum foil to prevent browning.

 Step 3
Bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) and bake until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean, about 30 minutes more. Cool pie to room temperature, at least 30 minutes; top with whipped cream.
