Incredible Pie

Recipe from Yasmin
Image by Cynthia Graubart

This is my most questioned and popular dessert or dish for afternoon tea. Everybody who has tried it has asked for the recipe, so I'm posting it on my blog for all to share. This is a moist dessert that shouldn't be overcooked and mustn't be undercooked or it will be sloppy and wet. To cook it to perfection you must let it brown evenly on top. Also, the dessert has a tendency to rise really tall in the centre, so leave plenty of room in the oven. Do not fret about the centre because it is just filled with hot air, once it has sat for a while on the bench it will disperse back to its original state. Serve this dessert with whipped cream either cold or hot - preferably cold, among friends or family.

  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup coconut
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla flavouring
  • whipped cream, to serve (optional)

Beat all ingredients together in a large bowl. Bake in a pie dish at 190'C fan-forced for 45 minutes. Serve with whipped cream (optional).
