Here is the recipe....
One box of NILLA vanilla wafers...trust me, NILLA is the best!
2 c sugar
1/2 c milk
1 c shredded coconut
1 c chopped pecans
Preheat oven to 350. Grease and flour a tube pan or bundt pan. I use Baker's Joy...so much easier.
Crush vanilla wafers...I put mine is a big ziplock bag and crushed them with a can of evaporated milk. Landon would have LOVED to help with this recipe. He enjoys helping me in the kitchen and crushing vanilla wafers would be right up his alley! Set aside.
Beat eggs and sugar together until creamy. Now Christy says to beat the eggs and just toss everything else in the bowl and mix but I am not a free spirit like Christy!
Add vanilla wafers, coconut, pecans and milk. Beat for two minutes.
Pour batter into prepared pan and bake at 350 for one hour.
This cake has no oil...I guess the eggs make up for that. Also...it does not rise very much so do not be surprised. I have to say it is a yummy cake and quite filling. It is a KEEPER in my book!
