There is something about baking that is almost therapeutic to me. I love being in the kitchen knowing I am creating something that has been made for generations from the same recipe. Something that makes your house smell like home. Something that can be enjoyed over a cup of coffee and a chat between friends. It makes me feel like I am really doing something amazing.
Every time I am in the kitchen I am doing something special. I am creating a sense of home for my children. Memories of smells, tastes, and sights that they will have for a lifetime. I am also sharing tradition and passing down well loved recipes that will hopefully be made by my children and grandchildren in their own kitchens. To me baking is a way of passing the torch. I thoroughly enjoy every minute I spend in the kitchen baking, now….cleaning my mess….that’s another story. 😉
I wanted to make a special treat for Father’s Day. I wanted to pass on a recipe that could be a tradition in your home. This cake doesn’t get made often, but it sure is a winner. It is so simple to make from stockpile items. It is moist, tasty, and mouth watering delicious. Bake one up for dad this weekend. He is sure to agree.
Nilla Wafer Cake
- 6 Whole Eggs
- 1 Cup Sweetened Flaked Coconut

- 2 cups Sugar
- 1 Cup Chopped Pecans
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Grease and Flour a Bundt pan
Beat eggs well in a large bowl.
Crush Nilla wafers. I used my food processor, but you could just use a bag and rolling pin.
Mix wafers and all other ingredients into the eggs.
Stir until well incorporated.
Pour batter into Greased Bundt pan.
Bake for 50-60 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean!
