    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.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 10 

    • 60g (2 oz) plain flour
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
    • 4 medium eggs
    • 60g (2 oz) margarine or butter
    • 200g (7 oz) caster sugar
    • 500ml (16 fl oz) milk
    • 90g (3 oz) desiccated coconut
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

    Method
    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:1hr  ›  Ready in:1hr15min 

    1. Preheat oven at 160 C / Gas 2/3. Grease a 25cm baking dish.
    2. 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.
    3. 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.

    Tip

    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.

    Milk

    If you have lactose intolerances, you can substitute the full milk amount for half water and half milk, or use a milk-substitute if you prefer.
