Effie's Untitled II

I believe this recipe must be baked (the addtition of baking powder) and is a graham cracker cake. Similar recipes for Graham Cracker Cake appear on the web on such sites as, and these recipes usually have coconut and/or pineapple in them. Refer to these recipes to help you make this recipe.

I wrote this exactly as copied from the book. All directions with an asterisk in front of it are my suggestions.

Effie's Untitled II

Cream 1/2 cup butter with 1 cup sugar; add 3 egg yolks, beaten light. Roll 23 graham crackers with 2 teaspoons of baking powder, 1 cup chopped nuts, 1 cup milk, beat whites and fold in vanilla.

*To "roll" graham crackers means to crush them with a rolling pin.
*Use the 3 leftover egg whites to beat stiff before folding in batter.
*Use 1/2-1 teaspoon vanilla extract.
*Place this in a greased baking pan (guesstimate based on amount of batter, but a 13"x9" seems right) and bake at 350 for about 40-60 minutes (check after 30 minutes).
*If the batter seems to require a higher temperature, then the next time you make bump oven to 375 degrees and bake until tests done.
