  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup pecan pieces

Peach Sauce

Instructions

  1. Cakes: Heat convection oven to 325 degrees F or standard oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Cream butter and sugar together. Add eggs, milk, coconut, pecans and vanilla wafers and mix well.
  3. Spray a standard 12-cup muffin pan with nonstick vegetable spray and fill with batter, dividing batter evenly.
