Vanilla Wafer Cake

Lynn demonstrates how to make a simple, delicious Vanilla Wafer Cake.  This is a great dessert or afternoon treat.  From thesouthernladycooks.


  • 2 stick butter, (1 cup)
  • 1-3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 6 eggs
  • ½ cup evaporated milk
  • 11 ounce box of vanilla wafers, crushed
  • 1-1/2 cups coconut
  • 1 teaspoon lemon extract
  • 1 cup chopped nuts, your choice, (I used pecans)

Preheat oven to 350°.

Grease and flour a bundt pan or use a cooking spray that contains flour.  Set aside.

Cream butter and sugar; add eggs and continue mixing.  Add milk, vanilla wafers and coconut along with the lemon extract.  Mix until well blended.  Fold in nuts.  Pour into prepared bundt pan.  Bake in a preheated 350° oven for 1 hour to 1 hour and 10 minutes until center is done.  Test with a toothpick that comes out clean or a cake tester.  Cool for 15 to 20 minutes and remove from pan.

Serve with caramel sauce, if desired.
