Lazy pie 

I made dairy free custard for pud tonight and had a sudden craving for something to have with it. I also wanted to encourage my son to eat the custard for the calcium and he does like something sweet. I didn’t have a tremendous desire to bake and initially I was going to make Nia’s Earth bars without the toffee layer (kind of like free from milky ways) but I took a bit of a turn and decided it needed to be pie. Instant gratification pie. So I made a no bake base layered with Nia’s nougat then melted dairy free dark and white chocolate. It was wicked nice and everyone liked it. It wouldn’t hold up well as a slice but it was ideal in a bowl with custard! 

Lazy pie

Line a tin with baking paper and grease (I used a small square tin)

200g Gluten free plain flour (I used mostly rice with some sorghum & teff) 

35g soft brown sugar

Half teaspoon salt

5 tablespoons Trex melted

3 tablespoons golden syrup

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Double quantity of Nia’s nougat

75g dairy free dark chocolate

30g dairy free white chocolate 

Mix flour, sugar and salt in a large bowl

Melt Trex and mix with golden syrup and vanilla essence

Stir wet mix into dry mix until well combined then press into tin with the back of a spoon

Chill in the fridge while you tidy up and make the nougat layer

Pour nougat onto base and leave to set while you melt the chocolate (it sets really quick!)

Melt the dark chocolate in the microwave, stir well then pour over the nougat layer 

Melt white chocolate and dribble it over the top in an attractive fashion and allow to set in the fridge 

Serve with dairy free custard

One thought on “Lazy pie 

  1. loving the lazy pie 🙂 and the choc is dribbled very attractively over the top – though I reckon I would want to skip the custard and stick to the pie!
