A wonderful cake that needs to be made ahead of time. Crushed biscuits are mixed with condensed milk, fruit and nuts and then aged for at least one week. Simple, yet utterly delicious.
My grandmother also makes this and we live in AL. Her recipe is slightly different, however, in that she uses a box of graham crackers instead of the vanilla wafers. She also uses a quart of pecans, and adds a bag of mini marshmallows. Delicious! - 22 Apr 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
PHENIX CITY, ALABAMA. THIS CAKE WAS PREPARED BY MY MOTHER EVERY YEAR FOR CHIRSTMAS. IT'S VERY RICH AND A SMALL PIECE IS MORE THAN PLENTY. SHE GOT THE RECIPE FROM MY GRANDMOTHER. THE ONLY DIFFERENCE BEING THAT MAMA MADE IT WITH FRESH GRATED COCONUT. TRY IT WITH THE COCONUT, YOU WONT BE DISAPPOINTED. FRANKIE STRINGFELLOW - 12 Dec 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I have been looking for this recipe for awhile.I had a friend who used to make this every year for holiday gifts and I loved it.I am from the south,depending on where you are from,this recipe made it down south.It is a great alternitive to the boring old fruit cakes we are used to.I am so glad I have it now,I'll pass this one on to my children.By the way my friend was like 70 when she made this,haven't seen her for almost10 years,I hope she's still here.Thanks , xxxSullyswytchxxx - 20 Nov 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
