Bertie’s Impossible Pie

with 2 Comments

This is a pie I learned to make from my mother many, many years ago. It is so simple to make and the reason for the name is that before you bake it seems absolutely impossible that the gloopy mess you have will ever become anything tasty let alone anything resembling a pie.


  • 4 eggs
  • 50 g margarine
  • 250 ml sugar
  • 150 ml flour
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 500 ml milk
  • 250 ml dessicated coconut
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract or vanilla sugar



  1. Cut the margarine in small pieces
  2. Mix all the ingredients in a bowl and whisk it
  3. Pour into a buttered pie dish
  4. Bake at 180 ? for 50 min
  5. Serve with Crème fraiche
