my parents, 1950
As the month of October flies by,
I thought I’d share one of my favorite
Vanilla Wafer Cake!
It is an honorary member of my
which is all about ranch living, South Texas, my parents (in the photo above),
family, and friends,
a. it is easy
b. it is delicious.
I discovered it years ago in one of the
Junior League cookbooks,
from the Junior League of McAllen, Texas.
Here it is!
Vanilla Wafer Cake
2 sticks butter
2 cups sugar
1 (16 oz.) box vanilla wafers, finely crumbled
1 (3 1/2 oz.) can Angel flake coconut
1 cup pecans, chopped
Cream the butter and the sugar together.
Add the 6 eggs, one at a time.
Add the vanilla wafer crumbs, the coconut, and the pecans.
Bake in a greased bundt pan at 275 degrees for 1 1/2 hours.
Cool for 15 minutes before removing from pan.
Serve with a delicious cup of coffee, sitting across the table from a friend or
a family member.
