Impossible Pie

Even though all the ingredients are combined, this dessert layers itself during the cooking process.  The flour drops to the bottom and the coconut floats to the top with the egg mixture in the middle.

For a savoury version, see Impossible Pie in the Lunch section

Ingredients:

  • 4 eggs
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup plain flour
  • 1 cup coconut
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence

Method:

  1. Combine all the ingredients in a food processor
  2. blend until combined
  3. pour into a greased casserole or large pie plate

Alternative flavourings:
