Sometimes called impossible coconut pie.
Remember Ferna Mae Jones? We learned about her in the post for Make-Ahead Cocktail Meatballs. Her maiden name was Kafka. I haven’t figured out who lola is yet, though; so far, the best lead is that Lola is short for Dolores, and a Dolores Kafka was born in the 1920s to a family that was from Czechoslovakia two generations earlier. But I can’t confirm that’s our lola yet, so I’ll keep working.
From the box of F.J. from Sun City, Arizona. Some cards suggest a family history in Missouri and Kansas.
