Kerry's Impossible Pie

 

This lovely desert recipe was given to me by a lady called Kerry from Launceston. It is extremely easy to make and when cooked it forms into three layers. The base is a slightly more solid layer, the middle layer is soft and creamy and the top is crisp and crunchy coconut.

The lady who sent me the recipe told me she actually beats together the ingredients in the same container she bakes it in - hence saving on washing up time. Now that suits me right down to the ground.

Food Facts:

Eggs are one of the most versatile forms of nourishment available. Nutritionists recommend we eat a maximum of four eggs per week, although a study by the Harvard School of Public Health found that there is no significant link between eating eggs and developing cardiovascular disease in healthy individuals. However, the important Nurses' Health Study and the Health Professionals Follow-up Study have found that people with existing heart and diabetes problems should probably not eat more than 3 eggs per week. Most eggs sold today are infertile because there are no roosters housed with the laying hens. There are no nutritional differences between fertile and infertile eggs. Eggs contain all nine essential amino acids, making them a complete protein food. An egg shell has as many as seventeen thousand pores. Apparently hens turn over their eggs as many as fifty times daily; the purpose of this being that the yolk then doesn't adhere to the inside of the shell. A fresh egg will sink in water, but a stale one will float.
