    About this recipe: 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.

    Ingredients
    Makes: 1 25cm ring

    • 110g chopped pecans
    • 110g chopped walnuts
    • 165g chopped raisins
    • 1/2 (225g) jar cocktail cherries, drained and chopped
    • 1 (397g) tin sweetened condensed milk
    • 340g vanilla biscuits, crushed

    Method
    Prep:20min  ›  Extra time:7days chilling  ›  Ready in:7days20min 

    1. In a medium bowl, stir together the pecans, raisins, walnuts, cherries, condensed milk and vanilla biscuits. Dough will be very thick, you will need to use your hands.
    2. Form dough into a ring shape on top of a dinner plate. Wrap in many layers of cling film and/or foil. Allow to age in the refrigerator for at least a week. The flavours will have a chance to blend and all of the milk will be absorbed into the cake.

    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)
