Syracuse University's Vanilla Wafer Cake

When I was in graduate school at Syracuse, one of my jobs was at the on campus restaurant frequented by faculty.

A favorite meal ended with this scrumptious coconuty cake.
It's just as popular and just as delicious today.

1 box crushed vanilla wafers  (I use my food processor)
2 cups sugar
7 oz shredded coconut ( I use unsweetened)
1/2 lb melted butter
8 eggs
1 cup slivered almonds (optional)

Mix all ingredients well.
Put into a 9x13 greased pan.
Bake at 350 until brown and a cake tester comes out clean.  Start checking at 45 minutes.

Cool and cut into small servings.  As you can guess, these are very rich as well as very good.
