It's a sweet, dense, moist cake that needs no frosting and has tons of flavor! 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!
This is another recipe I'd never heard of until we moved south, I really hope all my northern friends will try it. Y'all will love it!
1 cup butter (2 sticks) softened
2 cups sugar
1 (12 oz.) box of vanilla wafers
1/2 cup milk
1 (7 oz.) pkg. flaked coconut
1 cup pecans, finely chopped
Preheat oven to 325'F. Generously grease and flour a tube pan. (Don't use a spray, it doesn't work.)
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!)
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.
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.
