With just a few simple ingredients, this easy Egg Custard recipe is just like the one momma use to make. It's so rich, creamy, and smooth there's no way anyone can resist this Southern classic. Serve it with fresh fruit or chocolate drizzle - you can't go wrong!

What You'll Need

  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 (12-ounce) can evaporated milk
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9-inch pie plate with cooking spray, set aside.
  2. In a medium-sized bowl, combine sugar, flour, and eggs; mix well. Add remaining ingredients; mix well.
  3. Pour mixture into pie plate. Bake 35 to 40 minutes, or until center is firm.
  4. Remove from oven, let cool slightly and serve warm, or allow to cool then cover and chill until ready to serve. (see Note.)


  • The center will fall slightly after it cools, but no worries - it's still yummy!
  • If you want to make an egg custard pie, pour the custard filling into a thawed 9-inch frozen ready-to-bake deep-dish pie crust and proceed as directed above.

Can evaporated coconut milk be used instead of regular evaporated milk for those with sensitivites or cultural needs

Hi there! Yes evaporated coconut milk can replace regular evaporated milk. Hope this helps!

This was just boring and bland. Still searching for a pie closer to what my great grandmother made. She only used egg yolks, so it was richer. She also put nutmeg on top.

If something turned out awful or you thought it tasted bad, please explain what was wrong...why did it taste awful? Too much sugar....what? We need to know to decide if we want to try it or not or maybe change it somehow? Thank you.

I haven't tried it yet, but seems to me it needs a bit of cinnamon. I'll try it and get back to you!

I made this recipe for our Christmas dessert because my husband and I love egg custard pie and was so excited it didn't have a crust. The recipe was delicious and perfect.

I wish I had gone to the bottom of the page before trying this Perk

this is the worst custard i've ever tastted

Why give it 5 Stars if it "is the worst custard i've ever tastied"??!
