I really liked the flavor of this recipe though I would make some changes, first I wasnt able to find any vegan nilla wafers so I used gingersnaps, which tasted great but it was very sweet so I would omit the sugar in the crust, second I wasnt ever able to get this cake to set, I baked it for an hour and fifteen minutes and the top was cooked but the inside was almost a pudding consistancy...maybe more flour? Like I said it tates great, its just not the right consistancy so ill try to make it again sometime and see what happens.
