Vanilla Wafer Cake

                                                                       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.

The Recipe:  
1 cup butter at room temperature; 2 cups soft brown sugar; 4 eggs3 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.
