Greek Milk Pie -Galatopita

I had a good Greek friend at University and she introduced me to milk pie as she called it. I remember having my food service placement in a school kitchen and proudly sharing the recipe with the kitchen supervisor. Thats what good recipes are all about sharing, thats why food blogs are so well read and loved. I couldn't find the original recipe, I have been out of university 10 years wow time flies so I based it on this blog, I used polenta as I didn't have semolina and used all spice in place of cinnamon. I was also happy as hubby loved this recipe. The name is funny but honestly you won't regret giving it a try, it makes a wonderful flan, custard like dessert which is heavenly served with honey. 


  • 5 cups of milk
  • 1 cup fine polenta or semolina
  • ½ cup of butter
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • a pinch of all spice
  • 4 digestive biscuits made into crumbs (a British biscuit/cookie sold in world market)


1 Heat oven to 350
2. heat the milk almost to a boil in a pan add butter, sugar and polenta stir continuously over the heat until it thickens, turn of the heat and allow it to cool
3. add beaten eggs to the milk mixture with a whisk
4. add the mixture to a baking dish, with a digestive biscuit base lined with baking paper and bake for approximately 1 hour until the top has browned, allow pie to cool as it does it will thicken and set
5. serve with a drizzle of good honey and enjoy :-)

Things are fine here, in my last two weeks, just say a little prayer that I go into natural labor, really praying that I can avoid another c - section. My mum in law arrives friday which will be a great help and good for hubby so he can get his fix of Indian food as his British wife, has turned into an Italian and cooks pasta all the time he he
