Shoebox Cake (D, TNT)
Source: Unknown
Serves: 16

1 pound honey-cinnamon graham crackers
2 tsp. baking powder
6 eggs, lightly beaten
2 cups sugar
2 cups milk
1/2 pound sweet butter, melted
1-1/2 cups pecans, coarsely chopped
1-1/2 cups walnuts, coarsely chopped
7 ounces coconut, grated

Preheat oven to 250°F. Make crackers into fine crumbs in the food processor.

In a large bowl combine crumbs and baking powder. Then add eggs, sugar, milk, butter, nuts, and coconut. Blend until thoroughly incorporated.

Line a shoebox with wax paper and pour in cake mixture. Place uncovered box on cookie sheet in oven and bake for three hours. Let cool before slicing.

Poster's Notes:
Will keep well if stored with wax paper on top, covered with top of box.

It's very unusual, delicious, and suitable for a large crowd. The presentation can be very attractive if you bake it in a pretty shoebox and bring it as a gift. You may substitute a double-size loaf pan, if preferred.
