Nilla Wafer Cake

I'm not a big baker.  I used to bake all the time when I was a teenager but since having my own family cooking is my passion. Still, when I run across a recipe that intrigues me I will bake......... and intrigue me this did.  It's not the necessarily the prettiest cake but it is very tasty!

I've always loved vanilla wafers.  When I ran across this recipe for Vanilla Wafer Cake I knew I'd have to try it.  I was not disappointed!  This cake is dense but very moist and is really cool because it doesn't use any flour.  Instead of flour you use a whole box of crushed Nilla Wafers.

I took a big piece of cake over to my mom for her to enjoy.  She loved it and said it tasted like coconut pie to her and was really impressed that it was made with cookies.  The kids loved it too.  Bay had 3  pieces! Just make sure to grease and flour your pan really, really well as it has a tendency to stick. 

Just a bit of Nilla wafer trivia....did you know that "Nilla" is an Indian name for moon?  Sorta works on two levels.........they are made with va"nilla" and do look like a moon! 


  1. Looks yummy!! I just started a foodie blog and I'd love to add you to my blog roll - is that OK???

  2. Looks and sounds good, but you lost me at coconuts! I love Nila wafers though. Thanks for sharing! ♥ BJ

  3. Absolutely KM! I'd be honored! ;)

  4. I love Nilla wafers - so I am certainly intrigued by this cake! It looks and sounds fabulous. Maybe Bobbi could do what I do when a recipe calls for coconut - grind it up almost to a paste. That way you get the taste without the little pieces of coconut!

  5. Very creative! I love vanilla wafers so this looks really good. hmm I wonder how wafers would taste in cake form, probably very delicious!
