Vanilla Wafer Cake

This recipe was given to me by Ruth Adams. To me it’s more comparable to a nut bread. It is wonderful served warm with cool whip or even a butter sauce.

1 lb (4 cups) crushed vanilla wafers
2 C. sugar
1 & 1/2 sticks margarine
5 eggs
1/2 C. buttermilk
1 C. chopped nuts (pecans or walnuts)

Cream margarine and sugar, add eggs and buttermilk and mix well. Add cookies and nuts.
Pour into a well greased & floured Bundt pan. Bake for 1 hour 15 minutes at 350 degrees.
Cool 10 minutes before turning out. Serve plain or with whipped cream.
