About this recipe:This is a great family favourite but so quick and simple to make. What goes in the oven as gloop, miraculously comes out as a three layered pie with a lovely crisp coconut topping. Try it and see for yourself. Eat hot or cold, with or without cream, yoghurt or ice-cream, as a pudding or a tea time treat.

Preheat oven at 160 C / Gas 2/3. Grease a 25cm baking dish.
Sift the flour, salt and baking powder together into a bowl. Add all the other ingredients into the bowl and mix thoroughly by hand or using an electric mixer. You will have a sloppy mixture. Transfer to the prepared baking dish.
Bake in the preheated oven for about 1 hour until golden on top and a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Remove from the oven and either serve warm or allow to cool before enjoying.
Cut into portions this can be served as a pudding or like cake as tea time treat. Our family like it served with stewed apples, or a dribble of ginger syrup or Amarena cherry juice. I usually use less sugar than the recipe calls for.
