Vanilla Wafer Cake

By Paula Deen

Ingredients

  • 6 eggs
  • for dusting pan flour
  • for greasing pan butter
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 (12 oz) box crushed vanilla wafers
  • 1 cup sweetened flaked coconut
  • 1 cup or your favorite nut chopped pecans
  • 1/2 cup milk

Directions

Cook’s Note: An easy way to crush your vanilla wafers is to place half of the box at a time in a gallon zipper-seal bag and roll over them with a rolling pin or glass, then repeat with the other half.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and grease and flour a tube or Bundt pan.

In a large bowl, beat the eggs well. Mix the sugar, vanilla wafers, coconut, pecans and milk into the eggs.

Pour the mixture into the tube or Bundt pan. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 1 hour. Let sit in the pan for 10 minutes, and then turn out onto a plate. Allow to cool completely.

If desired, heat 1 tablespoon butter in a small saute pan. Cut a 1-inch slice of cake, butter both sides and toast in the butter. Add a dollop of whipped cream and serve with berries. Drizzle with caramel sauce. Repeat with remaining cake slices.
