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 )
Preheat oven to 180C and grease a deep 24cm pie dish well.
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.
Remove pie from the oven and sprinkle over the rest of the nuts, bake a further 10 minutes.
Serve with cream or vanilla ice-cream
I hope you love my recipe as much as I do
Resist the temptation and enjoy this hot from the oven or wait until it's cold. It's delightful either way.
Store in the refrigerator after cooling
