  • 1 3/4 cup whole milk
  • 1/4 cup butter melted & cooled
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 4 eggs
  • 2/3 cup flour
  • 1/8 tsp baking soda
  • dash of salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp rum extract
  • cinnamon for garnish optional


  • Warm your oven to 350, and generously butter your pie plate.
  • Melt the butter, then set aside to cool.
  • Mix the baking soda with the flour, eliminating lumps (you don't want to run into a lump of baking soda in your pie)
  • Add all of your ingredients except the cinnamon into a blender, and blend for several minutes, or until very smooth.
  • Pour into the prepared pie plate, and lightly sprinkle cinnamon on top.
  • Bake for 40-45 minutes, or until the top is golden and the pie is set.
  • Serve warm or cooled.


For the 2 teaspoons of rum extract, you can substitute 5-6 tablespoons of real rum. To adjust for the added liquid, decrease the milk by about 5 tablespoons or just over 1/4 cup.
You could also probably substitute rum extract with another extract like almond or vanilla.
