Impossible (Coconut) Pie

Here’s a recipe which I found in the unlikeliest of places…a crime novel!  (The one I mentioned in last week’s Feel Good Friday post.)

I’m loving Kerry Greenwood’s novels

and am racing through them at a speed of knots…

You’ll need:

  • ½ cup plain flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup dessicated coconut
  • 4 eggs
  • vanilla (I used vanilla sugar)
  • 125g melted butter (I used the stuff that comes in a squeezy bottle)
  • ½ cup flaked almonds (I didn’t use them – ‘cos I didn’t have any on hand!)
  • 1 cup milk

Heat the oven to 180 c (350f) and grease a deep pie dish.  Then hold on to your hats, because this is going to be super speedy!

Put everything – except the almonds – into a bowl and mix well.  Mix in half the almonds, if you’re using them.  Pour into the pie dish and sprinkle over the rest of the almonds.

Bake for about 35 minutes.  It will puff up and go golden brown.  Remove from the oven to cool. 

It’ll slowly deflate while it cools, ready for slicing (into very generous slices) and eating…

Bon appétit!

Hope you have a terrific Tuesday! 🙂
