No 1 son has been away shearing and was due home tonight so I thought I’d make him a nice dessert for after our BBQ tea.

This is what I came up with. It was absolutely scrumptious.



Biscuit Base:

  • 200 grams sweet biscuits
  • 125 grams butter


  • 5 eggs
  • 4 cups milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1/2 cup cornflour
  • 1/3 cup castor sugar


  • mango
  • whipped cream


Base:  Crush the biscuits and add the melted butter.  Press into greased pie dish.

Custard:  Place eggs, milk, vanilla essence and cornflour into a saucepan, whisk until combined.  Bring to the boil whisking all the time and simmer for 2 mins.


Allow custard to cool and then pour into pie dish.  Place in fridge until set.


Place mango over the top of the custard and top whole pie with whipped cream.


PS:  I had enough custard for nearly 2 pies so you could cut the mixture in half.

PPS:  I used frozen mango and it was a bit watery and I should have drained it first.  Fresh mango wouldn’t be a problem.

    1. I overdid the butter in the base and it was hard to cut, but it was absolutely delicious. You could really put any fruit on top that you want. Hope it turns out well for you Kira. Thanks for your lovely comment. Blessings

    1. It tasted really nice Tracy. Castor sugar is really fine white sugar, maybe you call it powdered sugar? Castor sugar dissolves really quickly and I use it for pavlovas and sponges. Icing sugar is almost powdered and we use it mainly for icing on cakes etc. Hope this makes sense. Blessings

  1. This does look yummy! having said that, I should offer a warning for those who suffer from allergic reactions to poison oak (or ivy or sumac, I would guess also): mangoes are RELATED to all of the above! I found this out the hard way while visiting relatives in Hawaii. I believe it is mostly the skin or any part of the tree, so frozen peeled mangoes should be fine, but take care when using fresh! Just a heads up. Who would have thought?

    1. We don’t have those issues in Australia (I don’t think) but that is very interesting. You could make the pie with any fruit you like really. Thanks for stopping by Carol and for your comment. Blessings

  3. I would have never thought about mango! I’ll have to check our store the next time I get to the “big city.” Thanks for sharing on the (mis)Adventures Monday. I look forward to you sharing again!

  4. That mango just looks scrumptious on top! I’ll bet it was so yummy. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by and sharing this on Five Friday Finds! I’m looking forward to what you share this week. 🙂
