This dessert is called "impossible" because, while a runny mixture is poured into the cake pan, a three-layered "pie" emerges from the oven. The bottom layer is pastry-like because the flour and butter sink to the bottom; the centre layer is like a custard filling; and the top layer is slightly browned and crusty because the coconut, the lightest ingredient, floats to the top during baking. Recipe is not suitable to freeze.
