Vanilla Wafer Cake

I had heard about a Vanilla Wafer Cake several years ago but had not seen a recipe until I bought a copy of Christy Jordan's Cookbook, Southern Plate.  I still have not cooked a Vanilla Wafer Cake but plan to do so this weekend.  Christy says that this is a moist cake and stays moist under a cake dome for several days.  She said the only way that her family knew this was from the times that her Momma made more than one!  Can't wait to try this one!

Vanilla Wafer Cake

6 eggs
1 - 12 oz. box vanilla wafers, crushed
1 cup sweetened flaked coconut
1/2 cup milk
2 cups sugar
1 cup chopped pecans

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

In a large bowl, beat the eggs well.  Mix the remaining ingredients into the eggs.  Pour the mixture into the tube pan or Bundt pan.  Bake for 1 hour or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Let sit in the pan for 10 min., then turn out onto a plate.  Allow to cool completely.
