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.
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.
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.
