Graham Cracker Cake Recipe

OK; I haven't tried this yet but thought I'd share anyway as it sounds delicious! I found this recipe during the cleaning yesterday at Uncle Jessie's; hand written in pencil on a piece of old spiral notebook paper. If someone went to the trouble of copying it down to share it must be good...

Graham Cracker Cake

1 cup Crisco
2 cups white sugar
5 eggs
2 Tablespoons Baking Powder
pinch salt
3/4 cup milk
1 cup pecan (more if wanted)
1 cup coconut
1 BOX Graham Crackers - crushed

Cream Crisco, sugar, eggs, milk, salt and Baking Powder. Add crushed crackers, pecans and coconut. Beat until well blended. Bake in 3 layers at 325*.

Filling

1 stick Butter
1 Box powdered sugar
1 small can pineapple (crushed)

Drain Pineapple and pour juice over layers. Mix butter, sugar and pineapple and use between and on top and sides of layers.

This is exactly as it was written. No baking time listed so just check for springiness, and insert a toothpick in center of layers at 20 to 40 minutes. It just sounds so easy and I absolutely adore old recipes written in real handwriting from years ago. The lady is most likely gone that first wrote this down as the notebook paper actually has 5 holes instead of just 3; definitely something to be cherished.
