    Shoebox Cake

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

    Preheat oven to 250. 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.

    Will keep well if stored with wax paper on top,covered with top of box. It's very unusual, delicicous, 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.
