~One Of The Unusual Zucchini Recipies I Use...But Good!~

~Zucchini Custard Pie~
This is a creamy dreamy pie with a delightful holiday like aroma that is very simple to make.


1 3/4 -2 cups zucchini, peeled, seeded and sliced very thin
10 oz evaporated milk
2/3 cup white sugar
1 large egg
3 tbls flour
3 tbls butter or margarine, softened
1 1/4 tsp vanilla extract ( use the real stuff not the imitation)
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
dash of salt
1 unbaked pie crust from the freezer or your own recipe


1. Boil zucchini slices until tender, drain, cool, and squeeze out excess moisture.
2. Place all ingerdients except the cinnamon, nutmeg and pie crust into blender and blend until smooth and creamy.
3. Pour into pie crust and sprinkle with nutmeg and cinnamon.
4. Place pie into pre-heated 425F degree oven and bake for 5-7 minutes. Reduce heat to 350F degrees and bake until set, approximately 35-40 minutes. Set is when only the very center is loose if the pan is giggled.
5. Allow to cool and finish firming up then refrigerate.
6. Enjoy!


  1. This sounds super yummy. I love zucchini bread so this sounds like a good recipe to try!

  2. I might just have to try this one! Hubby's fav pie?? Custard!

  3. It really is good. I was surprised the first time I made one! It doesn't taste like zucchini...just a good creamy custardy pie!

  4. Im not sure how I feel about that! lol- I am your newest follower! Stop by to join mine!

  5. I know the thought of it is sort of weird to say the least!LOL!...but it is soo good!

  6. I am very intrigued by this recipe. I'd love to try it, but not sure I would know how to "seed" a zucchini. Any suggestions for a novice?

  7. Hi Kim! Just cut the zucchini in half the long way and use a teaspoon to scoop out the seeded part...that's it! :)
