"This cake uses crushed cookies instead of flour. It is a great cake for kids: they will love crushing all those cookies."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

This was the first cake ( one of two- the cinnamon chocolate cake was fabulous too!), that i baked from scratch and it was a hit at Thanksgiving dinner as well as at work. SO MOIST! It was great, and it definitely makes me want to continue to try new ideas. Thanks!!
I baked it twice and made a cream cheese frosting. The first time, I used a bundt pan. It stuck to the bottom (even though I greased and floured heavily). I substituted 2 bananas for the coconut. The second time, I used a sheet cake pan and used 1/2 cup LESS sugar. The cake was too sweet for me with 2 cups of sugar, given the sweetness of the cookies. The texture is very thick, but moist and tasty. I've only baked it for my household. I haven't ventured to bake it for a crowd yet.
This can also be made with graham crackers and "Splenda" sweetener. I have used bananas instead of coconut when not on hand.It stores well in freezer. I have not tried the low fat vanilla waffers but I will. The graham crackers give a little different flavor but still great with cup of coffee.
I mixed the wet ingredients in the food processor, added to the dry & finished up in no time. Unable to locate my bundt pan I baked it the full 90 mins in a 9" x 13" pyrex. Nice cookie crust & moist moist cake. Coconut's an unexpected surprise!
This was great. The guys in my house loved it and ate it up before I could get a picture of it to post. I added some melted vanilla icing to it as well. Incidentally, it's great for breakfast.
Sorry, I didn't much care for this cake. First, it was a lot of trouble to crush the cookies (I used a blender), and second, it came out very 'wet,' dense, and was messy to eat. It did taste good though.
This was pretty good. I made an almond/cream cheese glaze to pour over and sprinkled chopped pecans on top. I used cake release in my 'non-stick' pan, and it STILL stuck (luckily I was able to salvage by pressing the top back on and covering with the glaze)! Make sure you use LOTS of grease and flour in pan, or just make in a 13x9 pan and leave it in there! :)
Very moist and dense cake. Reminds my hubby of applesauce cake. He loves it..I will make again and again. Thank you for the recipe.
