Note: Save a little coconut to sprinkle over the top of cake when done
Beat egg whites gradually adding 3/4 cup sugar while beating until stiff. Fold in crushed crackers, vanilla, nuts and coconut. Put into a 8" x 8" x 2" greased baking dish and bake at 350-F for 20 or 30 minutes using a toothpick test to see if done. Remove from oven and let cool.
Whip the cream adding 2 tablespoon sugar. Spread on cooled cake, sprinkle with coconut, lightly cover and chill overnight.
This cake is so good you will want seconds so it is suggested to double this recipe especially if you are serving more then 6 persons so use a 13" x 9" x 2" metal baking pan if you do.
