Impossible Pie doesn’t just scream caker; it shatters the sound barrier. Cakers love it because a) it's easy to make and b) we like using blenders.
What makes Impossible Pie magical is that the ingredients separate while baking. The Bisquick sinks to form a crust, the eggs and milk make custard and the coconut rises to create a crunchy, golden-brown crust.
In fact, it’s “impossible” to screw up. Unless you’re Greek. Remember my friend from Caker Christmas who substituted Werther’s candies for butterscotch chips to make Peanut Butter Marshmallow Squares? (Click here and scroll to the bottom to see the photo). A few years back, she made Impossible Pie and, well, here's the picture.
Anyway, so long as you're not Greek, you'll have no problem making this pie.
