| A Sweet Note|
I am ending October on A Sweet Note. This is a cake I had at a party many years ago and I ended up making it the next day. I have always wanted to post this recipe on my blog because this is such an unusually scrumptious, delicious, give me more Vanilla Wafer Cake.
1 cup butter at room temperature; 2 cups soft brown sugar; 4 eggs; 3 cups vanilla wafers, crushed;1/2 cup milk; 350gms chopped nuts.
For Topping: 1/8 cup butter and 1/4 cup brown sugar; 3 tbsp milk; almond flakes for decoration.
Beat butter and sugar in bowl till fluffy. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Add vanilla wafer crumbs and milk, mixing well. Stir in nuts. Pour into well-greased and lined round 8" pan. Bake at 275°F for 40 minutes or until cake is done. Cool, unmould and pour butter caramel glaze on top. Decorate with almond flakes.
To Make The Glaze: Mix the butter, brown sugar and milk together in a medium sized non stick pan. Bring to the boil and lower the heat. Simmer (takes about 5 minutes) till a two string consistency is reached. Remove from fire, beat for 5 minutes with a fork, pour over cake and decorate with almonds. This wonderful Vanilla Wafer Cake will certainly add A Sweet Note to any party.
