This Impossible Coconut Pie belonged to a dear work colleague of several years ago – (so thanks Naomi xx)  and now we all get to share her wonderful Impossible Pie

To serve maybe dust with icing sugar, and add some garnish for a fancy serve… some violets, rose petals or strawberries 😊


2 cups of milk
½ cup GF plain (All purpose) flour
1 tsp baking powder
¼ tsp salt
4 large free range eggs
1¼ cups of sugar
1½ tsp vanilla extract
1 cup of sweetened flaked (or shaved) coconut

(I use ½ cup of sugar only, if I can buy sweetened flaked coconut in the supermarket)


  • Preheat the oven to 180*C – 350*F
  • Butter a 9 – 10-inch / 25cm pie dish well. Set aside.
  • Add milk, flour, salt, baking powder, eggs, sugar and vanilla into a food processor or blender. Blend together for approx. 1 minute.
  • Add ½ the coconut and blend for a second or so longer.
  • Pour this mixture into the buttered pie dish and put the remainder of the coconut over the top of the mixture evenly
  • Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, until the edges are set and the centre is just firm
  • Remove from the oven, lovely served warm, or let cool – Can be warmed in a microwave …. lovely served – cooled in summer.
  • If cooling and serving later, chill in the refrigerator.
