Easy Coconut Crumb Cake
1 box classic white cake mix and ingredients called for on the box
1 c sweetened coconut
1 cupvanilla wafers
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1 tsp vanilla
Crush vanilla wafers.
Prepare cake mix as directed on box. Gently stir in coconut, vanilla wafers, pecans and vanilla. Bake according to box instructions. I baked mine in a 9x13 disposable pan as I was sending it with a friend.
Frost with vanilla frosting and sprinkle additional chopped pecans on top. I was going to do this, but my friend said it was fine without the frosting. She thought it would be good with a scoop of cool-whip.
I forgot to take a finished picture, so this is the one she sent me after her husband had "sampled" it!
