A few weeks into term and I'm usually exhausted and already feeling the pressure. Sometimes it's easy to lose your rational grip on things.
So this recipe is a tangible (edible!) reminder of how to resolve the seemingly impossible. Then you can get back to tackling your to-do list.
- 4 eggs
- ½ cup plain flour
- ¼ cup margarine
- 1 cup caster sugar
- Pinch of salt
- ½ tsp baking powder
- 2 cups milk
- 1 cup desiccated coconut
- 1 tsp vanilla essence
Heat the oven to 350F/180C/160C (fan oven)
Put all the ingredients in a blender. Together. All at the same time – with gay abandon and scant regard for due baking process.
Blitz to a liquid – technically a batter, of sorts (a couple of seconds).
Pour into a lightly greased pie dish (8-10”).
Put in the oven for 30-40 minutes.
Marvel at the resulting alchemy: from chaos to order.
