Vanilla Wafer Cake

It's a sweet, dense, moist cake that needs no frosting and has tons of flavor! There's no flour in it, the crushed vanilla wafers become the "flour". It's wonderful with a cup of coffee or glass of milk! Add a dollup of whipped cream and strawberries...and you have the perfect dessert!

Ingredients

1 c
(2 sticks) butter
2 c
sugar
6
eggs
1 (12oz.) box
vanilla wafers, crushed
1/2 c
milk
1 (7oz.) pkg
flaked coconut
1 c
pecans, finely chopped

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 325'F. Generously grease and flour a tube pan. (Don't use a spray, it doesn't work.)
2
Crush vanilla wafers with food processor or place them in a plastic bag and use a rolling pin. (That's what I did...easy peasy!)
3
Cream butter and sugar together in bowl; add eggs, one at a time, beating batter after each one. Add crushed vanilla wafers alternately with milk, ending with the wafers. Stir in coconut and pecans.
4
Pour into the well-greased and floured tube or bundt pan and bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes (approx). Test for doneness with a toothpick.
