I have some friends who don't eat pork and they happened to mention one day that the one thing they really miss, since they gave it up, is a pork pie.
This seemed to me more of a challenge than an obstacle, so I set about trying to recreate something equivalent to the Pork Pie Experience, but without any pork or pig products - indeed without any products of mammalian origin at all.
This is a baked custard pie with a difference - because it essentially makes itself. All you do is mix all the ingredients and bake - and when it comes out, it has a soft pastry crust on the bottom, and a moist wobbly custard filling on top.
Here's a recipe for a dessert with a flavour and appearance designed to surprise. It's a variation on the popular classic Lemon Meringue Pie, but this one is flavoured with raspberries and orange instead.
