Impossible Pie

This one is Jean’s recipe. It is a very simple but yet delectable dessert. The Impossible Pie is crispy on the outside by the brown coconut flakes and creamy in the inside like an egg custard.


Anyone know why this is called the Impossible Pie? Perhaps its because it is impossible to go wrong with this pie.


  • 4 eggs
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 3/4 cups milk
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup flaked coconut
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla


The instructions are so simple that I do not have to post any pictures to illustrate them.

Pour all the ingredients into a blender and blend for a few minutes. Pour the mixture into a greased 9″ pie plate and bake in a 325F preheated oven for 40 minutes or until a knife comes out clean when inserted into the pie.

    My step mother in law here in Edmeston, NY made this for Christmas dinner last year. She says it’s called Impossible Pie because it seems impossible that a pie could be made without a crust but yet a ‘crust’ is sort of formed at the bottom of the pie as a result of the coconut browning. Hope that helps.

    It is called Impossible Pie because although it is one mixture, it makes three separate layers. The crust, the filling, and the topping. My mother used to make this one and it is delicious.

    I have made this pie since I was 7 yrs old, all on my own. My mother always said it was called “IMPOSSIBLE” because anyone can make it and it’s ‘impossible’ to mess it up! It’s a great pie and super easy, even for those who have always said “I can’t make a pie!”
