In case no one knows what an impossible pie is. It's a lovely dessert where you put all your ingredients wet into a greased baking dish and almost impossibly it seems it comes out in 3 different layers. The bottom becomes pastry like because the flour and butter sink to the bottom, the centre becomes a custardy delight and the top is slightly golden and crunchy from the coconut and the flaked almonds. ( this was made middle of the night so the photo is quite horrible, please forgive me )


  • .5 Cup plain flour

  • 1 Cup Caster Sugar

  • .75 Cup Desiccated Coconut

  • 4 Eggs

  • 1 Tsp Vanilla Extract

  • 125 Grams Butter, Melted

  • .5 Cup Flaked Almonds

  • 2 Cups whole milk


  • 1.

    Preheat oven to 180C and grease a deep 24cm pie dish well.

  • 2.

    Combine the sifted flour, sugar, coconut, eggs, extract, butter and half of the nuts in a large bowl. Gradually add the milk stirring until well combined. Pour into your prepared dish and bake for 35 minutes.

  • 3.

    Remove pie from the oven and sprinkle over the rest of the nuts, bake a further 10 minutes.

  • 4.

    Serve with cream or vanilla ice-cream

  • 5.

    I hope you love my recipe as much as I do
