Custard Pie Explosion?

In the “Now I’ve seen it all” category, we just had a custard pie explode in the oven!  (Actually, it’s a buttermilk pie, but the distinction is subtle.)

The last time I checked it was nearly time to take it out, and it had puffed up much more than I remember ever seeing before in a pie.  Looked quite like a short souffle in a crust!  It still needed about 10 minutes in the oven.  Next check had a peculiar aroma coming from the kitchen.  There were now bits of puffed egg here and there inside the oven!  Most of it is still in the pie pan, and the part that was overflowing the crust was fairly easily manipulated back into the pan.  This is going to be an interesting pie to eat!

(Should maybe have put this in the joke section!  It’s not so funny today, but may be in a year or two.  What a MESS in the oven!)

OH Pete!!!  I’m sorry to hear what a mess it is, and I’m sorry that it’s going to be annoying to clean up, but I hope you can laugh at it tomorrow or the next day and don’t have to wait a whole year!! 

I’ve never heard of such a thing either!

Never had a pie explode, but once when I was putting a humongous chocolate chip cookie dough cheesecake in the oven I hit the edge of the oven, knocking loose the bottom of the springform pan and yes,  you guessed it. One mell of a hess. Cleaned up cheesecaske batter for months ! Needless to say, I am very careful of how I put something in the oven now. Hissy Fit

Oh, what a mess!!!  Vinegar and baking soda……..will help remove that smell, too!

It will eventually be funny and be able to put into one of those quite hilarious moments in the kitchen…..might not be until the cleaning of the oven has worn off, but….

Hopefully eating the pie will overcome the amount of work that went into it……………

To make matters worse, it is a birthday pie!  At least it was for home consumption, so won’t be a complete embarrassment in public!!  And the flavor is fine.  Evidently it was left in a bit too long.  Had I just not forgotten it for that extra few minutes.  Oh, well.

Oh well, I left a plastic bowl on a burner on the stove top and turned the oven on today. Big hole in the bowl,but not too much on the burner,think I can get the rest of the melt plastic scraped off the burner. :(

Life is too important to be taken too seriously.

But just think, it’s possible you’ve actually had an original, unique kitchen disaster!  And they scoffed, said it couldn’t be done, said NO ONE could expode a custard pie in oven. Pies don’t explode. “HA!” you’ll say.

 

And the next time you’re at a party where they decide to play that ice-breaker game where everyone is supposed to name one thing they’ve done that they think no one else in the room has, you’ll have a sure winner in your pocket.  You’ve exploded a pie!
