    Don't be deterred by this unusual way of making a cake! It's very simple and yummy and made of easily found ingredients.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 14 

    • 1 cup chopped pecans
    • 1 cup chopped walnuts
    • 1 cup chopped raisins
    • 125g maraschino cherries, drained and chopped
    • 440g tinned sweetened condensed milk
    • 375g vanilla wafers, crushed

    Directions
    Preparation:20min  ›  Extra time:7days chilling  ›  Ready in:7days20min 

    1. In a medium bowl stir together the pecans, raisins, walnuts, cherries, condensed milk and vanilla wafers. 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 plastic wrap and/or aluminium 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 USA and 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.
